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 …

Old Wop – [CrimePaid PK]

It is pretty well understood at this point that pretty much all artistic trends just go in cycles and much of it has to do with nostalgia, the music artists cut their teeth listening to, etc., and it is very clear within the underground rap undercurrents that the classic, original trap sound dating back to early Gucci Mane, Future, Young Thug, and even lesser appreciated artists like Ca$hOut all began over a decade ago that was criminally under-appreciated on both a mainstream and critical level. However there have been quite a few artists dabbling with that classic sound, aiming to restore the feeling that this music once provided back in the day while simultaneously approaching it with new flows and styles to build on the artistic achievements of those who came before. Earlier this week I wrote about OTL Beezy and Max2k10’s collaboration “Go Best Friend” and I have already stumbled on more stainless Max2k10 production, this time for buzzing Nashville rapper CrimePaid PK who came together with Max for PK’s latest HoodrichPlug premiered track “Old Wop” where PK skates over the adequately titled track given the sound of the production. PK shines with his rapid-fire trap bars, managing to …

Rover – [Tes X]

Tes X is an artist that I have been keeping a tab on for awhile now, I first got in tune with Tes through my homie DJ Hotrod over at Power 92.3 here in Chicago, and I’ve been seeing his name more + more ever since. Tes X was recently featured on DJ Scheme’s wildly successful album FAMILY, where he absoueltey shined, and more recently he released his collaboration with the rising Mario Judah. Today, Tes X is finding himself on our website with the premiere for his brand new music video for “Rover”, which I would argue is his best release yet. If you aren’t yet familiar with Tes X, this is the perfect place to start, his unmatched meldoy making ability was on full display here. In the coming months, I predict that Tes X will continue his upward trajectory, and before we know it, he will be one of the best new artists in today’s hip-hop world.

Premiere: Freezing (Visualizer)-[syd B]

This article is a special one for a multitude of reasons. When I first got into writing back in 2018, there are a couple of artists who I had the chance to write about who have now blossomed into amazing individuals and phenomenal performers. It’s those artists who I hold near and dear to me heart, and today, I have the chance of writing about someone who has been my favorite ever since I stumbled on her nearly 3 years ago. If you haven’t heard of syd B yet, then you should most definitely consider this to be your lucky day, as she has played a huge role in my love for music. The first time I heard her was when her song “December” came out in the latter part of 2018. Instantly I fell in love with this girls’ vocal tone and became a head over heels fan. Since then, the LA-Based talent has released a plethora of amazing songs that have ultimately led her to this platform right now. Today, the well-polished singer/songwriter makes another appearance on Lyrical  for the premiere of her brand new song, “Freezing”; a spectacular piece that deserves all of the love in the …

Premiere: I Wanna Be Alone With You (Backyard Sessions)-[Cloe Wilder]

A magnificent up and comer is hitting the page of Lyrical Lemonade this afternoon and I couldn’t be happier to be showcasing such a spectacular talent. For some time now, I’ve heard the name Cloe Wilder buzzing around; for good reason too, as she is definitely someone to keep an eye out for. If you’re looking for a stellar offering on this Tuesday workday, then look no further than this article. Today, Cloe unveils her latest rendition of her popular song, “I Wanna Be Alone With You” in a medium that is intimate and fitting to the original. This Backyard Session is the perfect way to get introduced to such a great artist as it is the exact same song that fans and tastemakers have come to love with a cool twist that puts an awesome spin on the beloved ballad. What I love most about Cloe’s artistry is her raw talent. It’s impossible for you to deny that she has talent and this is put on full display during this entire piece. She is unapologetically herself and her voice and style represent that in every way possible. Everyone involved in this one should be immensely please with it as …

darkkmagician – [blackwinterwells]

No one has convincingly dominated the modern music soundscape as fully and efficiently as blackwinterwells over the past year-plus. So much of the dream-esque, atmospheric, and utterly resounding sonic elements that pop music is beginning to take on more and more each day has been mastered by this magnificent talent, and it has been that way for quite some time. Where the Ontario, Canada standout has yet to fully delve into, however, is translating these ever-effective musical settings into a visual medium. It’s an endeavor that could be circumvented via the pure imagination her music sparks on its own, but one that certainly has all the potential in the world to be explored right in front of our eyes.  This task has finally been taken up via the newly-released video for her seminal single “darkkmagician.” Premiering via the titular Helix Tears channel and shot by fellow pop phenom 8485, this video serves as yet another example of the limitless creativity found within this generational act. It is a fact we can observe – and have done so accordingly – with nearly every track she’s contributed to, but with a visual element now in our hands, it becomes that much clearer …

Premiere: Lie About You (Visualizer)-[OSTON]

One of the best videos that you’ll see all week is by an up and coming artist who goes by the name of OSTON. If you’ve never heard of her before, then, this is your opportunity to stop what you’re doing and pay close attention to the rest of this article. Today, the LA-based pop singer/songwriter is making it onto the page of Lyrical Lemonade for the premiere of her visualizer for the song, “Lie About You’. After teasing the song on Tik-Tok, her growing community of fans practically forced her to release the full length track which has resulted in over 140,000 streams on Spotify alone in the first week. What we’re seeing here is a serious turnover from fans to listeners, which is extremely encouraging when you take into account how hard it is to build a fan base these days. What OSTON is doing is purely rooted from her genuine heart and authentic delivery. If people weren’t already impressed with the song, “Lie About You”, then this visualizer will do a great job of adding a bit more excitement around this up and comer. The simplistic yet powerful offering details OSTON as she pours her heart out …

Premiere: Dream Cruise-[Hard Car Kids]

Each time that I get to write about Hard Car Kids, I always have to pinch my arms to remind myself of how blessed I am to be able to cover such a talented group of individuals. If you haven’t read my previous work, Hard Car Kids is a Detroit bred group that consists of Charlie Burg, Munch, Stoop Lee, Austenyo, Leo Pastel, and Jacob Sigman, who all have their own respective solo projects that are taking off. Over the last few years, these superhero team up movies have absolutely crushed the box office and this collection of artists give off the same exact energy. With so much talent, it seems unfair for them to be on the same tracks, but the ending result is a myriad of songs that will leave you speechless. Today, Hard Car Kids make it onto the page of Lyrical Lemonade for the release of their EP “Dream Cruise” that I have the pleasure of premiering this morning! From the moment I took a listen to this 8 song project, I knew that I had just stumbled on a masterpiece in the truest sense of the word. Each song breathes life into the whole entire …

Money Dance – [LunchMoney Lewis]

Theres always a joy of mine being able to discover new artists that have been secretly killing the game on the low. The thing about songwriters, is that you may never come across them if you aren’t really looking at the song credits. Even then, the song credits may not always list every single artist, producer and songwriter on the song. The artists that are able to establish themselves as a songwriter first, and then transitioning into their own song-crafting is a flex in itself, and it shows a true arsenal of talent. Coming out of Miami, Florida, LunchMoney Lewis has been active amongst the veterans in the game and has written songs for many of the heavy-hitters of the game today. With artists such as Juicy J, Nicki Minaj & Lil Wayne receiving penmanship from Lewis, it was only a matter of time before he would venture into his own musical career. Today, he is making his premiere on the Lyrical Lemonade platform with a live rendition of his single “Money Dance”. For those who know me, I’m a sucker for a live rendition of just about anything. Hearing something be recorded live with real instruments just showcases another …

Premiere: Keys (Official Video)-[Lance Redeker]

Last year, Lance Redeker made a complete splash. His song, “Keys”, that dropped on December 15th was one of the most pleasant surprises for tastemakers all throughout the music industry. At first-listen, the offering made me do a double take, as I spent a lot of my first encounters with the song rewinding and replaying. Throughout the piece, the up and coming artist showcases his beautiful vocals and unique style that completely jumps off of the page. From start to finish, the production holds its own and creates a dream like ambience that welcomes listeners in to experience Lance’s world. “Keys” is a great song and today, I have the honor of premiering the official music video that just dropped today. The visual is the perfect compliment to an already impressive song. Directed by Richard Dombrowski, the cinematic piece follows an intriguing and fun storyline that will make you watch all the way til the end. From the moment you press play on the video, you’ll become immersed with the stellar camera angles and bold approach that the director took. It’s very apparent that the entire team took their time to make this video the best that they possibly could …
