Joony Releases ‘MEMENTO’ (Deluxe) & Visual For “I KNOW” Featuring Blxst

Published

on

Following the release of his impressive debut EP on Red Bull Records/EVGLE/211, Maryland’s breakout star Joony returned today with the Deluxe version of MEMENTO, featuring six brand new tracks. The lead single “I KNOW” marks the first collaboration between Joony and Grammy-nominated artist Blxst since announcing their label partnership last year. The duo teamed up on an accompanying music video out today, that shows how effortlessly their signature sounds blend together. 

On the Deluxe, Joony shares, “A memento is an object kept as a reminder or souvenir of a person or event. I wanted to take that concept a step further with the Deluxe EP and bring it full circle by expanding on the themes MEMENTO dove into.

The smooth new visual sees the DMV-bred crooner linking up with EVGLE’s head honcho across scenes in LA. Joony starts the sample-laced track with a heartfelt hook that showcases his vulnerability ahead of his bravado-filled first verse. Blxst follows up with equally confident bars, shouting out the duo’s recent partnership while also staking his claim as one of the best artists in the game. 

Blxst adds, “Honored to have Joony a part of the EVGLE family. Our first collaboration, so it’s special! When I first heard Joony’s music, I knew he was outta here! His versatility is next level and “I KNOW” and MEMENTO (Deluxe) embodies just that.

MEMENTO (Deluxe) picks up right where Joony left off, building on his transcendent vocals and flawless delivery of what feels like seven short stories from his journey to the top. Lauded for his versatility, the extended EP sees him experiment with live snippets on “MEMENTO,” stripped back, addictive verses on “SADITTY,” and suave flows on “BEAUTY / L(EYES).”

The Billboard Hot 100 rapper is no stranger to the big stage. Whether it be his standout performance alongside Grammy-nominated R&B artist Brent Faiyaz on “F.Y.T.B” and “Paper Soldiers,” or Jordan Ward’s “IDC,” Joony has consistently delivered and risen to the occasion. “I KNOW” is yet another example of the underground creator embracing his title as one of the best new artists of his generation.

Ryck Jane Sets The Tone With “No Problems” + “You Gone Learn Today”

Published

on

By

Ryck Jane

The first thing we see in Neesin Williams’s vibrant video for “You Gone Learn Today” is Ryck Jane’s earrings. They’re hard to miss — and they also might’ve been a challenge to wear. The two matching accessories that dangle from the rapper’s lobes appear to be made of solid gold. But the most notable thing about them is what they signify. They’re L.A. logos: twin declarations of allegiance to the city and scene that made her.

Even without the earrings, fans would know exactly where Ryck Jane was from. It’s not just her California drawl, the left coast pattern of her cadences, or the hard Los Angeleno funk that forms the bedrock of her irresistible recordings. It’s also in her dedication to glamour and her scrupulous attention to every detail of presentation. Jane knows exactly how to showcase her fierce individuality. She may be a new artist, but she handles herself like a showbiz veteran. She believes that she was born to inhabit the spotlight — and single after single, she demonstrates that her confidence isn’t misplaced.

“You Gone Learn Today” is her boldest declaration of autonomy yet. On the track, Ryck Jane raps about the inevitability of her rise and underscores her theme with a performance that’s relentless, colorful, and loaded with personality. Call it a message to the nonbelievers — who are getting harder and harder to find. The production backs up her boasts: the track is muscular and hypnotic, decorated with a thick, serpentine bass synthesizer lead, skittering beats, a thumping kick drum, and chanted backing vocals. The deep musicality of the track arrangement is a reminder that long before Ryck Jane found fame as an independent rapper, she’d distinguished herself as a trumpeter.

That horn shows up on “No Problems. The track is a centerpiece of Jane Got A Gun, the rapper’s scalding 2023 album. It’s slinkier and more subtle than the rambunctious “You Gone Learn Today,” but as the video makes clear, it’s another message to the world that Ryck James can’t be stopped. Just like the “You Gone Learn Today” video clip, “No Problems” is a showcase for the artist’s unique, and unerring sense of style.  It’s all here, and it’s all wild, and worn with the self-possession of a queen.
