Dro Kenji Ascends to New Melodic Plane on Debut Album ‘WITH OR WITHOUT YOU’

Published

on

A tireless worker who wears his heart on his sleeve, Dro Kenji chronicles his tragedies and triumphs in diaristic bursts of soaring melody. After cutting his teeth with four mixtapes, all released before he turned 20-years-old, Kenji levels up on WITH OR WITHOUT YOUhis official debut album. The South Carolina native is a startling vocal talent with a well-developed sense of drama–he switches from sweet singing to raw nerve bursts of emotion at a moment’s notice, his intensity rising and falling along with the beats in his narratives. Spanning 15 tracks, the new album finds Kenji exploring the ins and outs of young love, the album moves from intoxicating infatuation in early songs like “BOTTLE 4 BOTTLE” and “PUSH2START,” to the slow drift apart in songs like project highlight “USED2KNOW,” to the inevitable devastation of love’s end in songs like “OUR TOXINS” and “NOT THE HALF OF IT.”

Throughout the album, Kenji finds the perfect accompaniment in beats from Nick MiraCensus, and other members of Internet Money, who mix organic instrumentation (melancholic piano, gently-plucked guitar) with rage-ready synth lines and thumping low-end. On tracks like recent singles VANISH” (2.9 million Spotify streams) and “FINDERS KEEPERS” ft. Scorey (4 million Spotify streams), Kenji slides through the negative spaces in the beat with fast-talking flows and smooth melodic runs, displaying a collaborative chemistry that elevates both artist and producer. Featuring an additional appearance from Seattle rapper HighwayWITH OR WITHOUT YOU is available everywhere via Internet Money Records/MiraTouch/10k Projects.

Kenji’s debut album arrives after a banner year for the young artist, who achieved multiple career milestones while elevating his artistry. 2021 saw Kenji embark on his first headlining national tour, which he wrapped up with a performance at Rolling Loud California. 2021 also saw Kenji release two new mixtapes, including EAT YOUR HEART OUT, this past spring, featuring KILL CUPID” ft. $NOT (15 million Spotify streams), which received an animated video, and the early summer’s F*CK YOUR FEELINGS, which saw the rapper flex and reflect over 16 tracks of expansive Internet Money production, and features highlights like “SUPERSTAR” and “TRANCE.”

Never one to rest on his laurels, Dro Kenji is only just starting his rise. Stay tuned for much more from the prolific artist as he continues his ascent to the highest echelons of the rap game.

Still riding “High” off his recent collaboration with Dylan Chambers and ‘Best Melodic Rap Performance’ GRAMMY win for Lil Durk’s “All My Life” featuring J. Cole earlier this year, Miami musician LunchMoney Lewis delivers “Rain or Shine.” Co-produced by JulianBeatz & BRIANXWHITE, “Rain or Shine” is a record about believing things will get better even when everything feels hopeless. In current times where there is so much pain in the world, Lewis wrote the Hip-Hop / R&B-influenced track to help us overcome life’s hurdles with love.

“In light of everything going on in the world, I’ve been in a very tough place creatively about what I wanna write about. Seeing so many innocent lives taken pushed me to make something that gives people hope in some fashion, rain or shine. We will continue to push love and love only, even in the face of darkness,” states the talented triple threat about the inspiration behind his latest leak.

Best known for his work with Dr. Luke as a producer, LunchMoney Lewis first broke into wide recognition as a rapper after appearing on the song “Trini Dem Girls” from Nicki Minaj’s 2014 album ‘The Pinkprint.’ He also co-wrote Jessie J’s single “Burnin’ Up” from her album ‘Sweet Talker,’ and Fifth Harmony’s single “Bo$$” from the album ‘Reflection.’ In 2015, he released his debut single as a solo artist, “Bills”, which peaked at 79 on the Billboard Hot 100 and peaked at number one on the ARIA Charts.
