TRMNDS MLDY – CHOICES
Coming out of Atlanta is TRMNDS MLDY (pronounced tremendous melody), an emcee with a distinct Childish Gambino influenced flavour. Choices is the new jam from the artist who has been steadily picking up some local radio attention.
D SPINS – TRUE TO SELF
California based recording artist and multi-instrumentalist D Spins delivers mellow, jazz-guitar blended production and laconic rhymes on an after-dark chiller. True To Self is Russ-like flows with a hint of D’Angleo in the production. Luscious.
CAMILOSGARDEN – FINE WITH US
Autotune raps from CamilosGarden who sits somewhere between Lil Keed and The Kid Laroi in his delivery. He’s sharp with the flows and packs some clever bars into a little over two minutes.
AYELOOKITSBRADY – EASIER FT. C. NAMI
Hints of PartyNextDoor in this sultry R&B collab from Ohio’s ayelookitsBRADY and C.Nami. A tale of love, gentleness and companionship via delightful melodies.
BXDARO – THERAPY
Reggaeton-infused R&B from Toronto’s Bxdaro on new single Therapy. A club vibe that is just a French Montana feature verse away from radio rotation.
JUSTJAMES – COME BACK
Bright, boppy piano production and playful rhymes from JustJames outta NYC. It’s fun in an early Chance The Rapper or Amine kinda way.
AYLIN – BAD AT LOVE
Italian-born, British based recording artist Aylin delivers contemporary R&B in a Summer Walker-like fashion. Bad At Love is the latest single; honest, vulnerable, and heart-tugging.
MYSTERY x HARMONEY – THE JUNGLE
The Jungle is a catchy af bopper from Brooklyn’s own Mystery touching on themes of jealousy and loyalty via buttery flows while Harmoney comes through with a gorgeous hook a’la Ty Dolla $ign. Watch these guys closely.
STARNICOLE – FEELING IT
Dreamy R&B from emerging U.S West Coast songstress StarNicole. The lead single from new EP XO is a melodic message of love and empowerment giving us early 2000’s vibes.
TK TYCOON X DOTMAN – BOLANLE
Big international collab from Sweden based world-music artist TK Tycoon and Nigeria’s Dotman. Foot-tapping afrobeat elements which will be thoroughly enjoyed by fans of Burna Boy and DaVido.
