HARD SOFT – [KEY!]

Fresh off the release of his new album, ‘SO EMOTIONAL,’ KEY! is teasing new visuals for an exciting record called ‘Hard Soft’. The song is a conglomeration of the two sides of KEY!: the more aggressive side of the artist that makes bangers like “Remember Me“ featuring Rico Nasty; and the softer, more emotional side that spawns records like, ‘Love On Ice,’ the remix of which features 6LACK. On, ‘Hard Soft,’ KEY! raps in third person, questioning how he’s able to remain both tough and sentimental at the same time, noting that he’s, ‘Hard, soft in the middle.’ The production, courtesy of 14GOLDS, is spacey and woozy, with a reverberating flute, hard hitting 808, and classic trap drums creating the a perfect platform for KEY! to flex over. Throughout the new song he boasts his wealth, while his flows are somewhat reminiscent of fellow Atlanta legend Gucci Mane, but still remain distinctly unique. Check out this song below and the new album, ‘SO EMOTIONAL,’ and be on the lookout for visuals to this song:

Imported – [Jessie Reyez] ft. [6LACK]

Jessie Reyez and 6LACK each have a unique sound, but their careers share a similar arc. Both the Toronto songstress and the Atlanta crooner had tremendous years in 2018, dropping acclaimed solo projects paired with a few huge guest spots. Reyez even nabbed herself (another) platinum record in 2018, thanks to a songwriting credit on one Dua Lipa’s smash hit, “One Kiss.”  Emerging as two of the games brightest, young stars, it was only a matter of time until their paths crossed formally. The first (of hopefully many) collaborations between the two comes in the shape of a remix of Reyez’ rebound anthem, “Imported” and their chemistry is palpable. 6LACK’s presence gives the remix a special energy, taking things up a notch from the original while still fitting seamlessly into the fiber of the Hennedub-produced song. His sound works so well with Reyez, as they both share a distinct nip in their emotionally-driven voices. A rare feat for a remix and a testament to the blockbuster feel of this one, a music video is on the way as well! Hopefully, the momentum from this one carries Jessie over as she finishes hammering out the details on her next project, but for now, check out “Imported” below and let us …

Late Nights – [EscapeTracks]

As the R&B genre continues to grow with artists such as 6LACK, Solange, and Daniel Caesar, the influence that it has on the culture of music continues to increase as well. Releasing their first short film titled today “Late Nights”, EscapeTracks showcases the three types of love that are felt throughout the music with the delivery of an impressive cinema directed by Kyle Sassi, Christo Anesti, Devante Thomas, and Jennelle Cruz. To start, the film takes viewers through Tokyo while expressing broken love and the feelings associated with falling out of love. Later on in the film, the second type of love is expressed within the city of Los Angeles and its surrounding areas. Throughout this segment in particular, the energy and stigma associated with real love is depicted with the help of actor Mitch Modes and actress Aaliyah Ei. To finish the film and showcase the third type of love, the R&B rich city of Toronto is called on to illustrate the internal feelings of self love. While this film covers the basics of love and the different feelings we get as we fall in and out of it, it also sheds a massive light on the R&B culture and …

Mushroom Chocolate – [Quin] Ft. [6LACK]

I’m not overly sentimental (nor am I in a relationship), so by no means am I a reliable source for information on appropriate Valentine’s Day presents, but instead of flowers that die, a bear that collects dust in the closet by late April, or some expensive candy, why not send your Valentine a link to Quin’s, new, 6LACK-assisted effort “Mushroom Chocolate”? Sure, it may not be “traditional,” but when they get the message, it will serve the same purpose and (assuming they have good taste in music) will certainly yield the same results. Quin kicks off the cut stressing the importance of having someone by your side (and how good it feels when you do) before being joined 6LACK who shares in the sentiment and showcases palpable chemistry with the track’s creator. Make no mistake, this isn’t your average, sappy love song, though. Quins smooth, sultry vocals give “Mushroom Chocolate” and exotic energy and, for an R&B-centric cut, “Mushroom Chocolate” has an irresponsible amount of “slap” to it thanks to the boardwork of the legendary producer, Chuck Inglish. For now “Mushroom Chocolate” is just a loosie, but it’ll likely end up on her next project, which appears to be titled, Lucid.

Love On Ice – [KEY!] [Kenny Beats] ft. [6LACK]

KEY! can’t seem to stay out of headlines lately. From 777  and its subsequent deluxe version to various freestyles and the republication of all of his old music, the Atlanta native has been quite active lately, and today, he’s here to make his biggest move of 2019 so far. Revisiting the 777 deluxe edition, KEY! is back on LL with brand new visuals for the ever-so-smooth “Love On Ice” remix featuring 6LACK. Skating over the energetic instrumental (courtesy of Kenny Beats), this song brings together two of Atlanta’s premiere crooners, and the visuals follow this seamless chemistry up with icy scenery that’s simply perfect for the occasion. From the song to the screen, “Love On Ice” is a stellar release, so be sure to appreciate this one in full by checking out the illustrative new visuals at the link provided below! By the looks of it, this video is just the start of what will be a prosperous year for KEY! and co. Directed by David Wept

777 Deluxe – [KEY] [Kenny Beats]

KEY and Kenny Beats are here today to deliver on the highly anticipated deluxe version of their renowned collaborative album, 777. The new installment features five remixed tracks, two of which were on the original version of the album (“Hater” and “Love On Ice” — now with added features from Skepta and 6LACK) while three are newly-released songs from KEY along the likes ofRico Nasty and Jay Critch.

DiCaprio 2 – [J.I.D]

J.I.D has been a favorite at Lyrical Lemonade for quite some time now, and he just blessed us with his brand new album titled “DiCaprio 2”. There is a total of fourteen (if you count the bonus) new tracks provided on this project and after streaming through this tape a few times through I was extremely impressive with the final product. There was plenty of moments while listening to this project that I just closed my eyes and got lost in J.I.D’s hypnotic and at often times overwhelming (in a good way) verses, plus all of the skits provided made it feel more like a good movie and not just a good album. J.I.D was undoubtedly the shining factor here but the features on this project made it that much better thanks to the likes of A$AP Ferg, J. Cole, 6LACK, Ella Mai, BJ The Chicago Kid, Method Man and last but not least, Joey Bada$$.  Stream this brand new album below and if you like it be sure to give J.I.D a follow on Twitter here!

DiCaprio 2 – [JID]

Atlanta representative is an absolute flamethrower. Without a doubt, he’s one of the best pure lyricists in rap right now, and as if his 2017 project The Never Story wasn’t enough proof, JID is here today to bring this skill to entirely new heights with his latest full-length project: DiCaprio 2. 14 tracks long, this is probably one of the densest, most impactful albums of the year, in my opinion. Especially with all the blockbuster releases we’ve received throughout 2018, it’s becoming more and more difficult for artists to release albums with a lifespan over a few weeks, but with this one, it seems as though JID has conquered the struggle of longevity, finding timelessness in every single song on DiCaprio 2. Only adding fuel to the fire, this album also includes features from 6LACK, Ella Mai, A$AP Ferg, Method Man, BJ The Chicago Kid, and Joey Bada$$. On the boards, the credited producers include Christo, Kenny Beats, WondaGurl, and the late Mac Miller, whom JID was supposed to join on tour this fall before Miller’s untimely death. Needless to say, DiCaprio 2 speaks for itself and proves JID to be one of the best in the game, so recognize a young legend when …
