By Chuck Ramos // 6 Dec 2018

Houston’s own, Trevor Daniel has released his cinematic new visual for his breakout song, “Falling.” The R&B ballad is filled with ominous undertones that display the heartache reflected in Daniel’s lyrics, and the heartache soaked track is executed perfectly in the cinematic visuals that follows Daniel through a tragic night, fluctuating between reality and fantasy. This song is from Daniel’s recently released debut EP, Homesick, which has already garnered attention from Internet Money CEO Taz Taylor, who also lends his hand on the production side to create the dark melodic foundation for Trevor Daniel to serenade. Hopefully we get to see more captivating visuals from the talented vocalist in the future. Watch Trevor Daniels’ latest below and make sure to tell us your thoughts in the comments!

Feel The Same Way – [Rod Wave] ft. [Moneybagg Yo]

By Chuck Ramos // 6 Dec 2018

One of Florida’s most promising talents, Rod Wave, pledges unrelenting brotherhood to his day ones on his new single, “Feel The Same Way.” The St. Petersburg native has been rapidly gaining momentum lately with his gritty yet soulful voice chronicling his success, and helping to prove this, Wave’s new track showcases his ability to seamlessly alternate between sharp raps and gospel vocals. Topping this one off as an undeniable street anthem is a self-reflective verse from Memphis’ own, Moneybagg Yo, who Rod had premonitions about prior to the song’s creation, saying, “I’d been playing 2 Heartless on repeat when I was on the road for shows the week before making ‘Feel The Same Way.’ After I recorded the track and heard it, I was like, ‘Man, Moneybagg would snap on this song.’ My management reached out and I FaceTime’d Moneybagg, and we clicked. Shout out Drum Dummie and D Major who produced the track too.” Rod Wave’s new single is set to be released on the highly-anticipated, third installment of his Hunger Games mixtape series set to release December 7.

Atlanta residents have a lot to be proud of in terms of music, as the list of talented MCs to pop from the city truly never ends. Without further do, added to this list is Peewee Longway, who just dropped his highly anticipated mixtape, State of the Art, last Friday featuring the likes of Gucci Mane, Young Nudy, Quavo and Offset, Maxo Kream, and Plies. The tape already has found itself on heavy rotation as it features braggadocios bars over trunk-rattling trap production, and if not anything else, it makes it known that Peewee Longway truly is consistency personified.

Memoirs of You And I – [nocloud]

By Chuck Ramos // 3 Dec 2018

We first introduced Chicago artist nocloud to our pages last March with the Valee-assisted single, “Pineapple Juice”, and ever since then, the growth has been undeniable. Today, nocloud is back on Lyrical Lemonade with more than just a single. The Chicago-based artist has released his debut album, Memoirs of You And I, creating his own, uniquely acidic blend of alternative R&B.  My personal favorite on NoCloud’s newest has to be one of the standout tracks from the 32-minute album, “Glow”. Featuring elite production from Lyrical Lemonade favorite, Sean Deaux, this track is entrancing from the moment it starts. Nocloud’s vocals combine with the instrumentation masterfully, creating an ominous blend of conversational and storytelling writing that listeners can’t help but love. Stream the new album, Memoirs of You And I, below and make sure to leave a comment below telling us what you think!

DÉJALO – [A.CHAL]

By Chuck Ramos // 1 Dec 2018

Peruvian-born trap cowboy, A.CHAL has found a way to marry two contrasting themes into one cohesive showcasing with his new video and song, “DÉJALO.” Released yesterday, the new video is a precursor to A.CHAL’s upcoming six-track EP, titled, EXOTIGAZ. With no release date on the horizon as of yet, the multitalented vocalist is clearly setting a tone in marrying his Peruvian roots with new-age trap sound that translates into mesmerizing visuals. The video opens on A.CHAL and crew turning a seemingly typical horse stable into a party of their own adding their signature neon aesthetic. This electric scenery captures various scenes of A.CHAL and friends as well as the very talented vaquero’s who hold mastery level discipline over their four-legged steeds. Needless to say, the latest from A.CHAL shows immense growth since his last album offering, ON GAZ, released in early June. Watch A.CHAL’s video for his new song, “DÉJALO” below and tell us what you think of the video in the comment section!
