It’s safe to say that 2022 has been an unreal year for up and coming artist, Daniel Price. From a sonic, visual and stylistic level, the LA based talent has delivered the best version of himself to music fans and tastemakers alike. The last time you saw Daniel on our page, we did a deep dive into his personal story to celebrate the release of his project, “Peaking”. Today, he makes it back on to the Lyrical Lemonade circuit for the release of a brand new single called, “One of Me”. I was honestly surprised to see some new music out by Price, but was certainly not complaining as he has quickly grown into one of my favorite new artists out right now. “One of Me”, feels not only like a continuation of his latest project but also a new beginning which fills me with a lot of excitement when thinking about what’s next for him. This newest offering by Daniel is just as good as you’d think it would be. As soon as I turned it on, I was instantly refreshed by the honest lyrical content and unapologetic swagger that’s present in this one. “One of Me” features top …

Waiting on You-[Hailey Knox]

Hailey Knox is truly in my top 5 when it comes to favorite up and coming artists and it’s not even close. I’ve been a fan of here for a long time now and it’s been such a blessing getting to see her musical evolution over the years. Today, the LA based singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist/producer is making a well-deserved appearance for the release of her highly anticipated song called, “Waiting on You”. A few weeks ago, I saw a tiktok of her promoting this exact song and I was immediately hooked. Hailey has a supernatural presence about her that draws everyone to her and the fact that she’s amazing at music is just more fire to the dynamic flame that she is. “Waiting on You” features our favorite parts of Hailey. Her songwriting, vocal talents, harmonies and production are all operating at an insanely high level, which inevitably results in a song that you won’t want to stop listening to. A lot of songs released today, but there is no way any of them will get more personal plays by me than this one.

Cardinal Rule – [Frais]

It’s rare that a track under two minutes can pack such a punch, that it leaves the listener wanting to click repeat. That’s exactly the case, however, with the CMO Flexx-produced banger “Cardinal Rule,” a new track from Charlotte-born and LA-based artist Frais, who looks to continue making a splash. The track is a high-energy piece, with a catchy hook that immediately had me locked in. “N**** sayin’ he doing this and that, well he gon’ have to prove it – you were lyin’, ’til I popped out with that draco, now we know the truth.” Another facet of the piece that will undoubtedly draw more attention is the flawless video, produced by N:OW Productions. A masterpiece, this visual utilizes creative animations, text, and transitions that effectively make this short piece into what feels like a cinematic experience. I’m also a huge fan of the green lighting and tint throughout, which, to me, hints at the feel of night-vision goggles for this evening video shoot. An impressive collaboration between song and visual, “Cardinal Rule” is a heater you don’t want to miss. Look and listen on YouTube below!

PSYCHO$I$ – [Legend the Rapper]

Legend the Rapper, aka Legend, is a talented American-born but Australian-based rapper out of Melbourne, who’s on the rise after dropping his latest project PSYCHO$I$. The project itself is an 808-heavy E.P, which according to Legend is inspired by artists such as Young Dolph, UGK, and Key Glock. Aggression and raw delivery are two prevalent themes in this project, evident from the jump. Starting off with “DÖN CHEADLE,” the intro track was made to be the song you play when you enter the room, giving off nothing but pure alpha energy. Track 2, we have “JOHNNY WEST,” an absolute banger, calling for listeners to do it for their hood. G.I. JANE2 opens with an amazing sample of the incident of Will Smith shouting at Chris Rock at the 2022 Oscars, immediately drawing the audience in. This pop culture reference brings a trendy and relevant style to this E.P., accompanied also with a catchy hook. Last but not least, is track four, “DANIEL RICCIARDO.” This record is named after the famous F1 driver himself, and is rightfully titled with its high-paced flow. “DANIEL RICCIARDO” completes this E.P. by giving the listener a ‘final form’ experience that shows Legend’s full potential. What really …

Runnin – [Jonah Ward]

Cinncinati-based crooner Jonah Ward is back with his new single entitled “Runnin.” My first introduction to Jonah was his infectious single “False Confidence.” That was back in 2020 since then Jonah has released only one other song on DSPs up until now. Those 2 years away weren’t just a waste of time as you can see how much Jonah has been crafting his sound leading up to “Runnin.” Jonah stated via email that this record shows his critique of the current climate of art consumption. At the same time, he serves as a character study of a modern artist. The hook on this record has been playing on a loop over the past week as well. This combined with Jonah’s ability to structure and build out songs is at an advanced level for an artist at his point in their career. On September 27th Ward plans to drop his debut EP which may turn out to be one of the better releases from an upcoming pop act to drop this year. Stream, Jonah Ward‘s new single “Runnin’” for yourself after the break.

612.Light – Paralyzed

Music can be used in one daily life as an effective form of therapy to provide an outlet for emotions. As an artist, writing music has the power to channel our emotions into a song that can now resonate with millions of people around the world. 612.Light from Cleveland, Ohio used his music to discuss broken relationships and messy situations he experienced during his childhood that one could only imagine. Deeply influenced by the late Juice Wrld and Iann Dior, the rising artist has developed a wave of his own. Since releasing his singles “Killbunk”, “Lil Shock”, and Gee Hues, 612.Light has gained thousands of fans and streams. Earlier this year, he shared his latest track “Paralyzed” featuring Killbunk. “On my track Paralyzed featuring Killbunk, I expressed the path it took me to get to the top.

While there is no time for visuals, me and my team are avidly working on putting together a banger for all to enjoy in the near future.” he stated.

Text Me-[Mai Anna]

Mai Anna…If that name doesn’t mean anything to you right now, it most certainly will after you read this article. It’s undeniable that there is a lot of music circulating around the music industry right now and out of all of those songs, there are only a select few that I’d consider to have extensive replay value; an aspect that I think every artist should think about when crafting their tracks. The ability to grab someone’s attention over and over again is truly an underrated gift, so any time I come across a song that does that, I have to give it extensive praise. The song that I’m choosing to praise today is called, “Text Me” and it’s by none other than Mai Anna herself. I came across the Queens, NY based talent after a friend of mine sent me this track and from the moment I pressed play I was hooked. After my first pass of the song, I had to call my friend back up and ask him, “WAIT, WHO IS THIS?”. This song just hooked me in the best way possible and a lot of that is due to the marvelous production by highly touted producer, Solomon …
