Mood Swings-[Annie Green]

Calgary artist, Annie Green might just be the sweetest soul I’ve had the opportunity to come across in recent history. What intrigued me completely was her music, but what wholeheartedly hooked me was her amazing personality and gentle spirit. Today, the up and coming singer/songwriter is making an appearance on our page for the release of her song, “Mood Swings”. The offering that dropped about two weeks ago is truly receiving amazing reviews and great reactions as it’s been featured on a few of Spotify’s most coveted playlist. A feat they was achieved by the music just being amazing. Annie started her music career by singing country music. She found a bit of notoriety after posting Taylor Swift covers on YouTube; her following eventually grew which has given her the confidence to release music today. Her newest song, “Mood Swings” might just be the most impressive song I’ve heard by her to date. I asked Annie about the process of creating this one and she explained that she’s been listening to a lot of folk music lately which empowered her to write the song similar to storytelling more than anything shes’s written in the past. “When I wrote it, I …

Wassup – [Candypaint]

Candypaint is certainly no stranger to our Lyrical Lemonade website, he has been featured plenty of times in the past, and today he is back with his brand new visual for “Wassup”. This music video was directed by Dotcomnirvan who has been making some standout visuals for a minute now, and I feel like him + Candypaint where a good duo, they created a color + futuristic video that will be stuck in your head after only watching it once! I don’t have many words for this release, I feel like it’s best to let the content speak for itself, so take a few minutes out of your Monday to watch this new video below!

Bands In Da Basement – [03 Greedo] ft. [Chief Keef]

It’s always so unfortunate to think about 03 Greedo being locked up, especially because I started to get so heavily into his music right before he turned himself in. Luckily, thanks to his absolutely insane work ethic, he was constantly in the studio and recorded thousands of songs to help appease fans during his absence. Unfortunately, it’s tougher to make music videos with original content of course, but just like many other artists that had to make do during quarantine, his incredible team is finding ways around this obstacle in order to continue and deliver visuals to assist his unbelievable releases. Not too long ago, I heard “Bands In Da Basement” which featured the almighty Chief Keef and I was an instant fan from the moment I heard the mysteriously minimalistic production and Greedo’s individualistic autotuned crooning. Despite the odds being stacked against Greedo and Keef for a visual, 03’s team pulls through once again to gift us with an inventive and intriguing new video to assist this banger. It takes us back to the days of the two artists as kids, getting the assistance of some youngsters who look similar to the two artists to take center stage and …

Drippin-[Jany Green]

Jany Green is a talent unlike any other. It seems like it was just yesterday when the up and coming artist hopped on the scene in the best fashion ever after his notable song, “Little” hit streaming platforms. From that moment, we have seen the Alaska native go from virtually unknown to an artist who is sought after and celebrated by tastemakers and fans alike. Today, the hitmaker is being featured onto our page for the release of his brand new song called, “Drippin”. If you couldn’t tell by the title, this offering is filled with an infectious groove and innate swagger that will leave you wanting more music. It’s wild. Jany is just beginning to scratch the surface of how great he is going to become and it’s just the beginning. From the moment you press play on this one, the vibe doesn’t let up. Every second of this energetic piece adds so much value to the art that Jany is aiming to create. From the production side, it’s all stellar. The way this song was constructed was so thoughtful and meticulous. I can’t say enough good things about how this one sounds and Jany’s vocal tone is spot …

Shotgun Remix – [Matt Muse] x [femdot]

Last year Chicago native Matt Muse released a fantastic project titled Love & Nappyness, a tape that featured seven great tracks but my favorite was “Shotgun”, and today Matt Muse is back with the remix of the track featuring fellow Chicagoan femdot. Anybody who follows the Chicago music community knows that these are two of the most skilled bar-for-bar emcees that the city has to offer, so I was definitely excited to see that they linked up for this new remix, and it was an all-around solid release in my opinion. This is the first collaboration from these two since femdot’s feature on Matt’s 2018 project Nappy Talk, and I believe it’s by far their best collab to date. These two artists mesh very well together, hopefully, we get to see more music from them in the future, but for now, enjoy this new release below!

Time Will Tell – [Marlon Craft]

Marlon Craft is an artist out of New York who we have featured on our website a couple of times in the past, and today he is back with his brand new record titled “Time Will Tell”. I found this song while scrolling down my feed and honestly the cover art is what caught my eye + made me decide to check out this release, but once I said Marlon Craft spitting thought-provoking + political bars, I was interested to see where it was going. Marlon Craft really got his sh*t off on this joint, he spoke about plenty of the issues that are right here in America, and he called them out in a straight forward manner. I wasn’t too familiar with Marlon other than the time or two I saw him on our site in the past, but I am going to be taking a closer look into his catalog and I suggest that you do the same, click play below.

Time After Time – [Donald Grunge]

Massachusetts artist Donald Grunge is certainly no stranger to our platform, he has been featured here a few times in the past, and this afternoon he is back on our website with his brand new music video for “Time After Time”. This record was featured on his Cowboy Talk EP came out back in 2018, he has been steadily breathing new life into the project by releasing a slew of music videos to assist the tape. As we prepare for a deluxe version with four new songs, he decided to revisit the original with a fresh visual for a standout on the project “Time After Time”. Touching acoustic guitar riffs take center stage as Trap-influenced percussion and punchy drums assist the melody perfectly, but Donald absolutely steals the show with his incredible croons and infectious charisma. His voice is heavily autotuned, accentuating the impressive notes he’s belting out. As far as the visual is concerned, he takes us to a beachfront coast where he hikes around with an acoustic guitar slung over his shoulder in his country-inspired outfit. The setting around him seems to have some sort of discoloration as pink and purple colors accentuate the greenery that surrounds him, adding some colorful …

Mudd Classics, Vol. I – [SlitwristShawty]

I’ve talked copiously before about the booming rap scene in Detroit, and things don’t seem to be slowing down whatsoever at this point. The amount of under the radar talent coming out of the motor city is immense, and I’m just glad I can be here to witness the scene blossom in real-time. Although I’ve paid more attention to some more notable names like Sada Baby, Baby Smoove, and Teejayx6, I’m always looking for the next up and coming talents, so when I saw SlitwristShawty, an A&R discovering some of these rising stars, put together a mixtape featuring some of the most promising young artists, I had to listen up. The name of the tape is Mudd Classics, Vol. I, and although I had never heard of any of the featured rappers on this project prior to giving it a listen, I now know I have to get in tune more than ever before. Featuring only four songs that extend just over eight minutes, this concise project shows all seven artists at their best and gives them a platform to truly prove why Detroit is a force to be reckoned with in the music industry. Once again, because I’m not …

IDONTWANNASEEYOURFACE – [Yurms] x [Dolly]

The state of pop music in our current times is currently being infused with a number of different influences that have done nothing else but primarily added an unfounded emotional and emphatic weight to a historically hollow genre all things considered. These influences mostly stem from alternative genres with more sentimental values to them, and this has conclusively resulted in a merging of the two styles into the landscape we see today. Perhaps there is no better example of this notion painted ever-so-vividly than with one of pop music’s most prolific rising acts in Yurms — who has just come through with arguably one of their most shining singles yet in “IDONTWANNASEEYOURFACE.” Nearly every aspect that gives Yurms the title he’s earned at this point are on full display with this new cut, and they all route back to that supremely vivid alternative take on what pop music represents today. These facets range from Yurms’s emotionally-charged and even poetic lyrics and thematic tone to his vocal delivery that is just as gripping as it as impressive — all surrounding a hook that combines all of these things into a singular memorable moment of a passage. The production on the track …

Jesus – [Jimi Somewhere] x [Kacy Hill]

Pop music is beginning to take a seemingly endless amount of forms as each year and each era progresses day by day — a trend that is just as old as the genre itself, but one that also becomes more and more apparent as working creatives begin to explore new and unfounded avenues.    Though this idea of always experimenting and moving forward with the idea of pop music in general is true in the way that it is, that does not mean there still isn’t room for past aspects of this genre to continue to be drawn upon and conclusively perfected in our current times. And in the realms of tried and true indie-pop balladry, perhaps no one is doing this more exceptionally than Jimi Somewhere.    The Norwegian standout has been on an upward progression as far as his status in the grander pop landscape is concerned since bursting onto the scene towards the tail end of the 2010s, seeing his most resounding success come about due in large part to his anthemic singles and the videos that paired with them, along with his ever-impressive 2019 EP “Ponyboy.” But as it stands in 2020, Jimi is far beyond …
