Every now and then, I stumble upon a gem that I wish I would’ve found earlier. Today, that gem arrives in the form of local Chicago artist, Smba. There’s no question that the Midwest music scene has been spreading like wildfire as of late, and after hearing his latest song “Honeydew”, Smba will definitely be able to add some fuel to that fire, paving his own name in the city’s budding music scene!

At only 16 years old, Tyrone Jordan has the ambition to take him as far as he’d like to go in this industry. He’s already created a clothing line and his very own record label — that is, with the music to back it all up, just as well. “Honeydew” is a track that you’ll want to bump over and over again, and if not anything else, it provides listeners with a detailed look at what it’s like trying to navigate high school and relationships; something we’ve all had to deal with at one time or another. The catchy melody and strong production make this track one that I think a lot of people will enjoy, so I recommend trying this one out at the Spotify link below.

With this song and a project out, this certainly won’t be the last we hear of Smba. I’ve heard through the grapevine that he’s got something special coming in the early months of this year, so be sure to stay up to date with his new releases by following his social media accounts here and here.
