Premiere: chamber johan + Phases (video)-[Johan Lenox]

When you use the phrase generational talent, I believe the name Johan Lenox needs to be in any conversation that you might be having. The well established and well known artist is truly one of the most talented individuals in the music industry right now, and it’s about time that we took time to celebrate all of the genius that he possesses. I’ve witness this man take a song from 0-100 just by adding simple string elements to it and it’s the most beautiful thing I have ever witnessed ever. I’m so hype to be bringing this legend onto our page today and if you’re reading this, you should be too! For a majority of his life, Johan has been fixated on classical music. That is until he heard “My Dark Twisted Fantasy” for the first time at a house party while on Acid. It was at this moment when Johan’s interests and taste began to change although he’s managed to stick close to his classical roots. From then, the musician began dabbling with the possibility of crossing classical music with other genres. The Massachusetts native then was off to the races as he began the composer of Yeethoven in …

Sofaygo, The Boy Who Believed

When Andre Dontrel Burt decided to release the three-track EP, We Are Aliens, as SoFaygo, a new pseudonym to replace his former rap name, Trvllinese, the reception wasn’t exactly favorable. “I was getting backlash when I made that transition in 2018,” the 19-year-old rapper remembered, “People was not fucking with it. They liked Trvllinese better. I told them, bro, watch, y’all gonna see.” You make it seem like you knew what was going to happen? “I did,” he replied, “I always felt like I was going to be great, bro.”  Self-assurance doesn’t come in short supply for the Georgia-born teen. His need for a superstar’s resolve dates back to Junior year at Harrison High School. “I started caring less about people’s opinions in 11th grade,” SoFaygo recalled, “That’s when I started wearing different kinds of clothes, dyeing my hair in all different kinds of colors, just adapting to what Atlanta was on at the time.” “But niggas used to try me, bruh,” he asserted. “I don’t know why, maybe because I was different, but they would call me and my music weird.” With a light chuckle, the confident rookie added, “I was having none of that, bruh. I was always …

Premiere: Dimes (Official Music Video)-[Lyan Paris]

As always, our neighbors up north continue to produce exceptional talent and the artists that are making an appearance on our page today just so happen to fall in line within that category. 19 year best friends Ryan and Luke hail from a small town in Ontario but are undeniably on their way to the big time. The duo stumbled on rap in High School and from then on, their fateful partnership was formed into what is Lyan Paris. Today, the infectious duo is just getting started as they turned to TikTok to cultivate a strong fan base. After posting freestyle videos, the boys quickly garnered 300,000k followers on the app as well as 10 million likes, which is just a testament to their captivating energy. Today, the duo is making their lyrical lemonade for the release of the video for their song, “Dimes”. From the moment I heard this track, I knew that it was an instant hit. There are layers of nostalgia that are present while the uptempo production brings this to a place that every one will love. Throughout the verses, the two rappers do a great job of weaving clever rhymes and one liners to keep …

Dior – [Ka$hdami]

Last week I premiered a song on our website called “Dior” by the mega-talented Ka$hdami, and today, he is back on our website with the brand new music video for the song! When you have a young artist who is trying to grow their fanbase in 2021, good visuals might just be the most important aspect, and it’s clear that Ka$hdami and his team understand that because all of his music videos are solid. This is one artist that we here at Lyrical Lemonade are going to be keeping a close tab on in the coming months, he’s been growing his fanbase rapidly over the past few months, and I expect him to continue to skyrocket. Watch this brand new visual on YouTube below!

Dior! – [ka$hdami]

Just over a week ago, we announced the lineup for our Lyrical Lemonade Summer Smash music festival, there were plenty of talented musicians on the lineup, but one of the rising acts included on there that we at LL are excited about is ka$hdami! Today, ka$hdami is making his debut on our website with the premiere of his brand new music video for “Dior”. ka$hdami is an artist who is originally from Las Vegas but now stays in the DMV, and he has a sound that I believe is easily digestible and really hard to not enjoy. This is extremely exciting considering that he is still only sixteen years old, he has plenty of time to continue to craft + refine his sound, but honestly, I give it a couple of years before he really blows up. This is an artist that I suggest our audience keeps a close eye on, before you know it, he will be one of the biggest artists in his lane. Listen to this brand new tune via YouTube below, and be sure to give him a follow on Twitter here! Produced by fwthis1will

We Made It – [Cam Wallace]

After a year of turmoil that many of us faced last year, there seems to be a lot of light at the end of the tunnel for some. Speaking in terms of the music business, concerts are coming back, artists are moving around, festival season is right around the corner, and new deals are on the table for many artists. Regardless, there are a lot of things for people to begin to look forward to and say, we made it. This is something that the Houston-native Cam Wallace had in mind when he created his latest single. Today, he returns to our platforms to premiere his latest offering, “We Made It”. Cam Wallace has a lot to be celebrating as of late, which makes this single even more fitting. Most recently, he just inked a new record deal with Motown, with “We Made It” being the first official single released on the label. The amazing thing about the term “making it”, is that it’s entirely subjective. No matter what your accomplishments are, you have the power to determine what “making it” means, and Cam Wallace explains that perfectly with this record. Produced by Triza, this song provides the perfect background …

Premiere: HAKEEM – [2219 Lee] ft. [Mali Smith] [Cash Cobain]

In accordance with the rise of social media as the predominant way for artists to promote their work, the snippet game has become crucial in building an audience. Post 20 seconds of an unreleased song – the most quotable part, the part when the beat drops, etc. – and if it’s captivating and brief enough, people will want to hear more. When done right, snippets create demand, which was exactly the case when this snippet from 2219 Lee, Mali Smith, and Cash Cobain caught my ear on Instagram. Hailing from New York, all three artists are part of a collective called MHPG SOUND, which is characterized by its “SOUND OR DROWN” slogan. The group has built out a style that’s buzzing around New York right now, especially seen in Cash Cobain’s recent growth with cosigns from Drake via IG live and Lil Yachty, to name a few. MHPG’s latest release, “HAKEEM,” is the group’s best work to date. Built on the simple-yet-effective foundation of an ominous melody and hard-nosed drill percussion, “HAKEEM” is the kind of straight-forward release, packed with signature New York charisma and quotable lyrics, that cements the excitement around such a promising collective of talent. With lines like “Cash Cobain …

STEP IN THE SCENE FREESTYLE! – [EGOVERT]

Ever since I’ve gotten deeper into the underground music scene while writing for Lyrical, I’ve been lucky enough to actually form friendships with certain artists and other industry people, and there are perks that come with this. Most notably, a lot of times I get an early look at new music from some of my favorite up-and-comers, so when EGOVERT hit me last week and sent an early cut of his latest song, I was all in from the moment I pressed play. This song, which came out just yesterday, ended up being called “STEP IN THE SCENE FREESTYLE!” and it’s produced by the well-renowned hitmaker Supa Mario. As soon as you begin the song, your ears are attacked by a rowdy, intense 808 before you hear some intergalactic synths that are eventually met with spread apart hats and some mischievous piano keys that truly tie everything together. Considering EGO is one of my overall favorite artists out right now, I feel like he can do no wrong, but the way he attacks this instrumental shows him truly at the top of his game. Although he can have such a strong and almost overpowering personality, this is what keeps me …

Sober Up – [Steven Moses]

Steven Moses is one of the most talented artists that I have listened to in my entire seven years at Lyrical Lemonade, he is a one of a kind creative and he is back on our website today with the premiere of his brand new music video for “Sober Up”. When it comes to pure musical talent, not many can compare to Steven Moses, he is as gifted as they come and this new release furthermore proves that point. This record finds Steven singing a beautiful tune about how he needs to eventually reach a point of sobriety, but he’s continuing to push it off because it numbs his pain. I love this song because as ear-pleasing as the melody is, he’s really talking about some real sh*t. Watch this brand new music video below!

Premiere: This Life-[Fortuno]

Fortuno has been one of my favorite surprises of 2021 even though they’ve been making music years before then. I remember I first came across their music back in 2018, remembering them for having a distinct and memorable style that I hadn’t heard from many groups. Fast forward to today and the three-piece just released an amazing song that might just be one of the first masterpieces that I’ve gotten the chance to write on this year. The new offering, called, “This Life” is the follow-up to the three stellar releases that they already have underneath their belts this year. This new one might just be an instant classic if you ask me. From the moment I turned it on, I was instantly drawn in to the captivating ambience that envelopes it. The group consists of Tobi, who writes and sings, and Ellis & Eli who compose and produce. Each one of these talented individuals do an amazing job of adding their own personal flare and style to an impressive piece. From start to finish, I can’t even begin to tell y’all how much I enjoyed this new offering by Fortuno and I know anyone who listens will feel the same …
