Cherae Leri and IAMFLUX drop new track “Secret Santa”

Published

on

The most wonderful time of the year is approaching, but this year Cherae Leri and IAMFLUX are spicing up this holiday season for the grown and sexy folk with an x-rated medley of some of your favorite Christmas hits and timeless RnB tracks. From holiday classics like “All I Want for Christmas” to RnB anthems like “Freak Me,” this FLUX and Drumz & Roses produced mash-up marries the aura of jingle bells with the sultry seduction of soul music as they lyrically reveal a tale of two naughty lovers. Santa’s obligation to deliver gifts around the world gets a bit off track when he stops by Mrs. Grinch’s house first.

“Santa Baby” listens with explosive nostalgia and unapologetic festive decadence as these two vocalists melt into one another amid rewriting some classics to tell a narrative all their own. Inspired by the longing to create a track that takes you on a steamy ride through evocative bops like J. Holiday’s “Bed” to ageless Christmas tunes like “You’re A Mean One Mr. Grinch,” they’ve covered all the bases from bedrooms to mistletoes.

Check out “Secret Santa” below.

KVTheWriter & Mai Lee Drops New Track, “Figure Out The Rest”

Published

on

Before she headlines Festival of Nations at Tower Grove Park next month and delivers the re-release of her debut LP ‘FRIENDZ,’ Mai Lee joins KVTheWriter on the official remix to her Reggie Son assisted track “Figure Out The Rest.” The STL posse cut finds the trio trading soulful verses about the 314 and all it’s allure over melodic guitar strums.

“I enjoyed sharing my artistry with KVtheWriter and Reggie Son. It was my first time working with them and I loved the experience. The song’s production is unique and allows each artist to stand out on the song. I felt like I gave St. Louis a bit of sexy sauce with my vocals,” say’s Lee speaking on the collaboration exclusively in a press statement.

A medley of the people and places she represents, Mai Lee transcends the boundaries of music and fashion. Growing up in Missouri, the seasoned singer has always had music on her mind and in her heart. Attending performing arts schools during her youth, she uses those experiences to create a unique genre blending sound. Known for her intoxicating and soulful vocals, Mai Lee has shared the stage with artists such as Megan Thee Stallion, 2 Chainz, Fetty Wap, Estelle, and Busta Rhymes, performing in front of an audience of 20K+ people.

While you may hear some familiar influences in her sound, Mai Lee notes her parents as her biggest inspirations for her music career. Fleeing from Vietnam in 1978 during the Vietnam War, Lee’s parents migrated through multiple refugee camps over the years before calling St. Louis their home. They opened up the first Vietnamese and Chinese Restaurant, Mai Lee Restaurant, a local staple in the city. The restaurant was built from absolutely nothing and ended up becoming the blueprint. Watching them work hard towards their dreams gave her the hustle and grit to pursue her dreams.

Gawvi Shares Upcoming LP Cover With “Bitter Pill” Visual

Published

on

Ahead of his fourth studio album ATMOSTFEAR, which will be released tomorrow, GAWVI reveals the project’s official artwork. In-conjunction with the out of this world theme seen in the creative direction on previous releases “Into The Atmostfear” and “Doors Down,” the cover captures the Florida mainstay rising above faith-testing transgressions and leaping ahead to his fruitful future. To give loyal fans one last preview of what to expect before they can experience the musical masterpiece in its entirety the international superstar liberates the Azrel & Jay Gracia-directed music video for third single “Bitter Pill.”

Embracing peace over bitterness, “Bitter Pill” is a testament to the healing that comes from letting go. It’s about discovering that true strength lies in forgiveness, not in holding onto past hurts. In an exclusive press statement to Medium Creative Agency about the song’s central theme, the 2x RIAA Certified Gold producer explains: “Letting go of bitterness has taught me the peace of forgiveness; this record documents my journey to healing and understanding. Definitely one of my favorite songs on the album.”

Born in the Bronx borough of New York City to a Salvadorian father and Dominican mother, GAWVI is a first-generation Latino immigrant on a mission to use Rap as a unity building medium. Raised in Broward County along with his older sister, who was the first person to embrace his passion for music, he split most of his time as a kid between school and church. At the age of 9 it was clear to him that music was not just something he had a high appreciation for but a purpose to live out. He began to hone in on his musical gifts, first by playing piano at church and then graduating to music production in High School.

Sighting Kanye West’s The College Dropout as the catalyst for him to jump from behind the bandstand and into the booth, the pivotal moment in time gave him the motivation to foster a genre of Hip-Hop with morals and integrity. With just over 20 years of skin in the game, he credits a local artist named Danny for giving him his first big break in the industry after purchasing a beat from him. Fast forward, after mastering his craft and paying his dues, he connected with Lecrae and has been a force to be reckoned with since.
