Upper Hand – [Bblasian]

By Lucas Garrison // 15 Sep 2019

In today’s climate, there are a million and one factors that go into making a hit record, ranging from the right feature at the right time to a viral Tik-Tok. Sometimes, though, it really is as simple as making dope music. At the end of the day a hit record is a hit record and Bblasian’s “Upper Hand” is a hit record. Already garnering some buzz, and, now, freshly signed to Cinematic Music Group, “Upper Hand” could be the one that takes the Louisville product to the next level before his debut EP, DIF, drops later this month. On “Upper Hand,” Bblasian looks to motivate and inspire, tackling obstacles in his path, with his melodic flow that’s engined by his positive, youthful energy, and a hook guaranteed to get stuck in your brain. The video, directed by Gxdlike, echo the personality and mission of the track, with  “Upper Hand” spreading the color throughout a dark environment. A positive message, packaged in a colorful, anthemic sound, with well-executed video to cap it off, “Upper Hand” will serve as a strong foundation for the talented up-and-comer.

til bliss – [KEYAH/BLU]

By Seamus Fay // 14 Sep 2019

Having made waves in both fashion and music, South London artist KEYAH/BLU is governed by individuality. Unapologetically and without even bending to conformity, she’s a beacon of light in a world filled with trend-following and score-keeping, maintaining a sense of self that quite honestly, few people seem to carry anymore. Today, in a well-deserved moment of shine, I’m more than excited to help shed a light on BLU’s latest release — “til bliss.” Coming forth as a sonic escape from the pressures of the week, “til bliss” is a poetic release focused around the ambition of finding bliss. It’s vulnerable, celebratory, candid, and universal, combining a plethora of emotions into one release that, if not anything else, masters the art of comfort. For listeners of any type, there’s something reassuring about “til bliss,” seemingly reminding us all that the story isn’t ever over. We’re all valuable in our own way and we all have more to do, more to see, and better days to come. Offerings such as the magical “til bliss” act as perfect moments to reflect on such. That said, show some love to London’s own and check this one out below! Directed by Keyah Blu & Aws …

Happy Song – [Kaash Paige]

By Seamus Fay // 13 Sep 2019

Kaash Paige is a star. There aren’t any ifs, ands, or buts about it. From some of the most impeccable vocals in the game right now to the sheer charisma that radiates off her every move, Paige is an artist just a cut above the rest, roaring with the individualistic vision and talent to take over. Today, marking my personal favorite song of hers to date, she’s here to prove it and then some with “Happy Song.” If not anything else, this release speaks to the candid personality that makes Paige such a one-of-a-kind artist. Rather than falling in line with the polished, almost unnaturally-sleek vision of pop and R&B right now, she’s a breath of fresh air in the simple idea of being herself. With “Happy Song,” it becomes hugely evident that Kaash Paige is the same person she’s always been, and even while her career roars with star-bound momentum, that won’t be changing anytime soon. With that said, “Happy Song” is a must-listen and a must-watch in every sense of the words. Get ready to watch Paige’s ascent toward stardom and check the new release out below! This one might just be one of my favorite songs of the …

I Like Me Better – [Queen Key]

By Elliot Montanez // 12 Sep 2019

Just a couple of days ago Chicago native Queen Key released a brand new music video for “I Like Me Better” and it’s not anything you want to miss out on. This video gives an inside look at Queen Key’s ‘Camp Queen’ program that she does in Chicago where she provides children with free food, arts and crafts, face masks, creative writing, health care and much more. The song itself is a smooth and different pace than I have usually heard from Queen Key, it was more of a laid back and introspective joint that I thoroughly enjoyed. Watch this brand new music video below and if you like what you see, then go ahead and give her a follow on Twitter here!

Strollin – [Phlowerie]

By Mike del Ro // 12 Sep 2019

Texas-based songwriter Phlowerie has shared a new music video for her song, “Strollin’”. With a blissful, lo-fi sound and soft vocals, Phlowerie captures the stray beams of light as the sun sets on summertime and turns them into a quintessential kickback song. The video matches the lighthearted playfulness of “Strollin” on an aesthetic level as colorful warm-toned shots of Phlowerie and her crew riding around on a sunny day fit the relaxes mood of the song. Director Rodger Woodruff III (@HOLLYWOODRUFF) has fun with the song’s carefree vibe, escalating the video up a notch with laser guns that turn men into assorted snacks. If you’ve been deprived of sunlight lately, you could step outside, or you could just hit play on the music video for “Strollin’” below:

F*ck The World (Summer In London) – [Brent Faiyaz]

By Seamus Fay // 12 Sep 2019

  There’s something about Brent Faiyaz that never clicks right off the bat for me. I know there’s something below the surface and I always know that his music will eventually grow on me, but few times have I listened to a song of his and fallen in love right away. One perfect example of such is Faiyaz’s most recent offering, “F*ck The World (Summer In London).” Taking his talents overseas, “F*ck The World (Summer In London)” holds a mesmeric, almost mysterious allure. The production is subtle, and Faiyaz’s vocals act as the driving force behind the song, slowly painting an understated image of the energy surrounding his summer. Personally, upon first listen, I simply couldn’t meet the slowed pace here, and not until I sat down with headphones did I really feel the impact of such masterful subtlety in this one. Now having run the song back countless times, though, “F*ck The World (Summer In London)” has become my favorite work from Faiyaz to date, illustrating the almost ethereal sense of cool that surrounds his image and art. Today, perfectly communicating this appeal, the man himself is here to bless fans with a complementary music video, set in — …
