Dro Kenji’s Dream World Collides with Reality in “PUSH2START”

Published

on

With his vulnerable verses, moving melodies, and artistic vision, Dro Kenji has established himself as an all-around creative powerhouse in his young career. He possesses a sense of visual savvy that elevates his stellar sound to new heights, allowing fans to immerse themselves in Kenji’s world and feel even more connected to the empathic powerhouse. Today, Dro Kenji returns to expand his cinematic universe with “PUSH2START,” the high-octane opening track from his recent debut album, WITH OR WITHOUT YOU.

The Declan Kyle-directed video for “PUSH2START” adds a new layer of complexity to the ethereal adventures of Dro Kenji’s dream world, as seen in recent videos like “FINDERS KEEPERS,” “USED2KNOW,” and “VANISH.” Unlike its predecessors, “PUSH2START” is set in the real world— New York City to be exact. However, much like Dro Kenji fights to keep painful memories at bay throughout the album, the kaleidoscopic realm of his imagination becomes just as invasive as it creeps into the streets and rooftops of NYC. As he struggles to determine fantasy from reality, the dream world that has been his refuge comes to haunt him like a waking nightmare. Yet, by the video’s end, the two worlds reconcile, seemingly merging into one. As a fired-up Kenji closes out the track, it’s clear that this is far more than a dream. It’s Kenji’s world, and we’re all living in it. 

Released in January, WITH OR WITHOUT YOU arrived after a banner year for the young artist, which saw him embark on his first headlining national tour, wrapping 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 (13+ 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.

Jada Kingdom tries to remember “Last Night” in new song and video

Published

By

Asserting herself as a breakthrough artist this year, Jamaican-born singer and songwriter Jada Kingdom uncovers a slick, sizzling, and sultry new single and video entitled “Last Night” today via Money Well Spent/Republic Records.

Listen to “Last Night” HERE

A sparse beat trickles underneath her sensual vocals as she confesses, “Last night was crazy, can’t remember it. Her voice moves in waves with the track’s ebb and flow, dipping in and out of dancehall and R&B with a sly hint of pop. In the accompanying visualizer, Jada brings the lyrics to life with a beach side party. 

It stands out as the follow-up to “Dickmatized.” The latter immediately incited critical applause. Brooklyn Vegan touted it among “20 New Rap and R&B Songs Out This Week” and applauded it as “a cool, chilled-out song that’s about exactly what you think it’s about.” Meanwhile, Dancehall Mag summed it up succinctly as “ultra-sexy.

“Dickmatized” arrived on the heels of the international bop “Jungle. Between cracking a million total streams, HotNewHipHop praised its “insights into the trials and tribulations the young singer has endured.” NME put it best, “The singer/songwriter’s tough upbringing means she isn’t afraid to tell it like it is, a mentality that shines through in her blend of salacious dancehall and straight-to-the-point R&B.

Meanwhile, she added multiple dimensions to this banger via official remixes from Skylar MonesR3HAB, and Sham “Sak Pase” Joseph. Continuing to engage her growing worldwide fan base, she also just dropped a sizzling cover of the Amy Winehouse classic “Back To Black. Watch it HERE.

Quavo x Takeoff Present New Single & Music Video “Hotel Lobby”

Published

on

By

Over the years, Quavo and Takeoff have gone wild once or twice. However, they go wilder than ever on their new single and music video “Hotel Lobby”—available today via Quality Control Music Group/Motown Records.  Quavo and Takeoff reveal a woozy and wobbly banger on a whole different level..

Listen to “Hotel Lobby” HERE and watch the music video for “Hotel Lobby” HERE.

The airy cinematic production and ominous beat set the tone as Quavo and Takeoff trade one intoxicating bar after another. Co-directed by Keemotion and Quavo, the music video serves as an insane homage to the cult classic Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas directed by Terry Gilliam and co-starring Johnny Depp and Benicio Del Toro. In the clip, Quavo and Takeoff assume the roles of Raoul Duke and Dr. Gonzo cruising through the desert with a “mobile pharmacy” before pulling up to a Las Vegas hotel and barely passing the doors to check in. All kinds of psychedelic, tripped-out trap madness follows as they deliver the South’s first proper hip-hop homage to the late Hunter S. Thompson. It’s unlike anything either of these two multiplatinum GRAMMY® Award-nominated superstars have done either solo or as part of Migos!

It also paves the way for more music to come.

Takeoff recently dropped off “Crypto” with Rich The Kid. It has already amassed over 6.5 million Spotify streams and 4.7 million YouTube views on the music video. Receiving critical acclaim, HYPEBEAST proclaimed, “the new single sees the Migos rapper embrace his love for cryptocurrency and the fortune that it has brought him.

Meanwhile, Quavo served up the intense “Shooters Inside My Crib.” It posted up 6 million Spotify streams and 6.6 million YouTube views on the music video. Touted among the “Soundsystem 50, High Snobiety observed, Quavo skates over the Ayo-B-produced beat effortlessly teasing us about an upcoming project.” REVOLT added, ‘Shooters Inside My Crib’ sees the North Atlanta star harmonizing about past struggles and current successes.” Sports Illustrated summed it up best as “an absolute banger.” Not to mention, he joined NBA2K22 as a playable character and will star in a new action thriller Takeover.

Be on the lookout for more soon!
