Give Me A Reason – [Bennett]

By Elliot Montanez // 19 Feb 2020

Lyrical Lemonade fans have certainly been getting more and more in tune with Bennett, one of my personal favorite new singers who is rising up the ranks, who today is back on our website with her brand new music video for “Give Me A Reason”. You might recall when I posted about this song when it dropped back in November, and even then I knew that it was only a matter of time until she dropped a visual for the soothing record, and cleary her fans were waiting patiently for this too because in just under two weeks she has racked up nearly 220,000 thousand views on the video! Bennett is not only a fantastic artist who creates radio sounding records, but she has a solid team around her that only going to help bring her to the top, I highly suggest that you give her a listen before she blows up. Take a few minutes out of your Wednesday to check out this brand new music video below and if you are feeling the vibes that Bennett is providing then make sure you give her a follow on Twitter here!

By Elliot Montanez // 19 Feb 2020

Atreesto is a talent who I have raved about on our lemon filled pages time and time again, and today the Las Vegas-based producer is back with a brand new offering titled “Blue Morning”. Atreesto’s work ethic is second to none and his massive workload proves that as he seemingly is dropping instrumental after instrumental on the weekly and as a fan of him it’s an awesome thing to be receiving this much solid material. Atreesto has been making himself a second home here on our website and as long as he keeps up the good work, click play on this brand new tune below and if you like what you hear then go ahead + follow him on Soundcloud here!

6° – [Melo Makes Music]

By Elliot Montanez // 19 Feb 2020

Melo Makes Music is one of the many gems that make up the Chicago music community, and today the extremely skilled creative is back on our pages with his brand new offering titled “6°”. I have been familiar with Melo Makes Music for almost half of a decade now, I have always thought that he had star-like potential, but lately, he has really been growing as an artist & it sounds weird but his music & appearance has become more polished + star-like. Not to mention that Melo has been making power moves and working his ass off, so it’s only right that he has got into this newfound position to excel, he worked hard to put himself there. This single was solid to me and it’s only leaving me more eager for a full-length tape from Melo, but for the time being get in tune with his latest release by pressing play below!

Watch Big Sean’s brand new interview on Joe Budden’s Pull Up

By Elliot Montanez // 18 Feb 2020

Big Sean is one of my favorite rappers of the past decade hands down, he is an amazing talent so when I saw he sat down with the great Joe Budden for a brand new interview on his ‘Pull Up’ series, I couldn’t wait to tune in! Joe asked Big Sean about plenty of topics such as his catalog, writing his own material, the upcoming ten year anniversary of Finally Famous, how he copes with his lows, therapy, taking care of his family, why he took a step back from the limelight for a minute, his relationship with his record label, his Twenty88 project with Jhene, Kobe Bryant, Juice WRLD & XXX, Coachella, when he dropped Dark Sky Paradise, signing with Kanye West + GOOD Music, when he first met Chris Brown, how he got Nicki Minaj on “Ass” back in the day, what to expect on his new album, how he has grown as an artist and so much more. Joe Budden is one of my favorite interviewers in the world, he can bring the best out of artists that most can’t, I wish I would have been in tune with his interviews earlier but it’s better late than …

suninmyeyes – [Noah Chris]

By Elliot Montanez // 17 Feb 2020

Today we have a creative that goes by the name of Noah Chris who is making his Lyrical Lemonade debut on our website this afternoon with his brand new offering titled “suninmyeyes”. Noah Chris is an artist from Evanston, Illinois & has been a standout in plenty of the popular open mic communities within the area + the city, and he is looking to be taking the next step in his career within the next year or so. I have had this song on repeat for the past twenty minutes straight, astonished by Noah’s ear-pleasing vocals, especially considering that he is still very young + early in his career. I am expecting big things from Noah Chris moving forward, he has set a high bar but I fully expect him to be able to one-up himself. I can continue to talk about this release but Noah decided to do a little of the talking himself, adding: This song is about a version of myself that is searching for love from someone who probably will never love me back. Sometimes it feels like she’s the only way I’m gonna be happy…. but that I know I have to make me happy first. …
