Running Away – [lil rozey] ft. [ITSOKTOCRY]

Over the past month or so, I have pretty much fully immersed myself into the Hyperpop scene thanks to the constant reminders I was getting from my brother. I was always a fan of a few incredible artists in this scene, but it wasn’t until my bro finally got in my head and made me truly dive in headfirst to see what I was missing out on. Luckily, I’ve gotten very familiar with ITSOKTOCRY as well as the media company HIVEMIND, so when I saw that they teamed up for another new music video for lil rozey’s song “Running Away” I stopped in my tracks and tuned in. lil rozey is definitely a new name to me, but after hearing this record, he’s the next artist on my list that I can’t wait to check out more of. On this song, rozey also handled the production and did so unbelievably, incorporating a constantly pulsating kick drum alongside revealing and somewhat hectic synths that combine for a simplistic yet constantly moving instrumental. rozey’s vocals captivate you from the moment he begins to sing because it sounds as if he’s barely putting any effort into his delivery, yet the notes that come …

Favorite Girl – [Kye Colors]

Kye Colors is a one-of-a-kind talent, he’s still in the very early stages of his career, but he understands that putting out quality content is the most important thing for him to do. Today, Kye Colors is back on our website with his brand new music video for “Favorite Girl”. He dropped this release on Valentine’s day, which was a very fitting time for this one to come out, and it’s a well-directed visual that compliments the song perfectly. I plan on getting Kye Colors back up to Chicago sometime soon for another interview with him, so subscribe to The Lemonade Stand to be updated when that first releases. For now though, watch this brand new music video below. Directed by Kendu

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 …

Hardcore Happy – [THE BLOSSOM]

The Blossom dropped one of my favorite videos and singles this past week with a new record entitled “Hardcore Happy.” I typically check out Spotify’s New Music Friday every week, but not to see which bigger artists dropped I’m always looking for newer artists that land on there. “Hardcore Happy” brought me back to the late 90s and early 00’s with her style, this record could’ve been in an American Pie movie or Mid90s. Like those coming of age movies, the theme, and narrative around the single match the tone of the video. Lily Lizotte starts off the video being stuck in the dirt, which is showcasing when growing up and in life in general we get stuck, and sometimes our insecurities and anxiety can end up holding us back. This is the starting point of The Blossom’s rollout for their forthcoming EP 97 BLOSSOM which will definitely be on my radar after this single. Watch the video for The Blossom’s “Hardcore Happy” for yourself after the break.

New Jam Freestyle – [Trapland Pat]

Today we are featuring an artist who has been making some serious noise out of South Florida. He goes by the name Trapland Pat, if you’re a fan of quick-spitting energetic rappers then he is one for you. Pat has a very recognizable look, with his videos being the main source people have been discovering his music. I was incredibly curious after seeing a snippet of his latest video and immediately had to learn more about the rising emcee. His catalog is already fairly deep but his incredibly catchy new single “New Jam Freestyle” is the stand out thus far. This one really connected with me leading to me playing on repeat all weekend long. Trapland Pat’s new track is incredibly bouncy, using the playful key breaks in between the 808s to jampack incredible verses in between the infectious hook. South Florida has always produced artists that know how to combine melodic cadences with lyrics inspired by the streets, Trapland Pat is an artist that is up there with the best of them in terms of flow. The visuals for this track keep the energetic pacing you would expect from a bouncy banger like this. Overall, I am incredibly excited …

Sangria – [$NOT] x [Denzel Curry]

I have had an amazing time watching $NOT grow as an artist over the years, but specifically since we shot the two music videos for him last year. He has taken full advantage of that opportunity and has capitalized on it to the maximum, he has made all of the right moves since then, and today he is back with a brand new music video for “Sangria” featuring Denzel Curry. The $NOT + Denzel Curry link-up is the collab that I never knew I needed, these two created something to be proud of, it’s one of those songs that’s so good you simply can’t listen to it just once. I loved this song and I believe that you will too, check it out for yourself below! Produced by Power Pleasant

A Conversation with Wolf

Wolf was an artist who hit my radar back in 2020 and ever since then, I’ve been obsessed with her music and story. After “High Waist Jeans” made it in my inbox, I knew that I was witnessing the rise of a special talent, which then caused me to frantically analyze her discography with pure excitement. Some people just have that “it” factor and the moment you look at Wolf, it is undeniable that she falls in to that category. The New York native has been on an absolute tare lately as her song “Hoops” has been experiencing a revitalization over the past few weeks. People from all over the country are becoming fans of hers every day ad it’s all due to her amazing talent, infectious personality and drive to be the best singer/songwriter/producer that she can be.  As a self proclaimed Lyrical Lemonade fanatic herself, it was only right that we get her on our page and dive deep into what makes her the stellar star that she’s shaping in to be. This past week, I had the chance to sit down with Wolf and her management to learn more about this explosive journey that they’ve been on. …


If you somehow haven’t noticed that the Hyperpop scene has been absolutely booming recently, then you just might live under a rock. This new school, out of the box take on Hip-Hop and Pop music is absolutely absurd and makes no sense in the best way possible, and I’m completely here for it. Some artists definitely take things to different, more obscure levels than others, but regardless of the situation, I have the utmost respect for these artists because they’re making music that I couldn’t even dream of creating. Most recently, one of my homies put me onto an artist who goes by the name ROMANCEPLANET, and I was definitely a fan right off the bat. He’s signed to Cleopatra Records, a label that boasts numerous talents from a variety of different genres, but the most notable Hyperpop artist being ITSOKTOCRY, one of my favorite artists out at the moment. That’s why, when I found out he was signed to Cleopatra, he was definitely worth checking out, and his music video for his song “December” is definitely something you’re not going to want to miss out on. As with most Hyperpop music videos, they can get pretty strange and abstract, …

CANCELLED – [slowthai] ft. [Skepta]

The more slowthai builds up hype behind his upcoming album TYRON, the less I sleep because I’m just so unbelievably excited. All of the singles he has dropped so far have been absolute hits and sound like completely separate entities, so although most people like albums that flow fluently from song to song, it’s hard to imagine how this project is going to pull that off. Nonetheless, thai is an absolute mastermind, so I know he’s going to tie everything together perfectly, and we’re going to see all the fun unfold this Friday, February 12th. Just last week, thai and his close friend and frequent collaborator Skepta took the stage on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to perform a brand-new single entitled “CANCELLED”, a song that they teamed up to shoot a music video for as well. Now that the studio-quality single is in our laps, I couldn’t be more excited. Kelvin Krash, SAMO, and Kwes Darko joined forces to create the incredible instrumental, utilizing eerie, unsettling flutes, crisp percussion, and terse drums that come together to create an amazing result. Throughout all of this, Skepta takes the hook to brag about some of his many well-deserved accomplishments as …

Cdot Honcho: The Lemonade Stand Interview

Cdot Honcho is one of the best artists in Chicago and has been for a minute now, he is a close friend of ours here at Lyrical Lemonade, so right before Christmas, I brought him by the office for a brand new interview on The Lemonade Stand. In this conversation, I asked him about a good amount of topics such as his latest project H5, his musical influences growing up, his experience at Curie High School, the creative direction he has in his music videos, working with Calboy + Valee, being an independent artist, what he thinks is missing in Chicago’s music community and more. Take some time out of your day to watch this brand new interview below!
