“Let your light shine”: GodsNd Is Sharing His Gifts with The World

Published

on

GodsNd is more than just an artist making his breakthrough in the industry. He has big plans and major visions, and hopes to carry them out with his passion for music; honed abilities writing lyrics, producing, and structuring melodies; and love for his community back home in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti. Seated at the intersection between neo-90’s R&B and commercial pop (“Bryan McKnight meets Adele,” as he describes), GodsNd is focused on staying true to himself and his sound— unapologetically. 

Having been in the industry for 5 years now, GodsNd is hardly new to the game. “I really wanted to take this seriously after writing and producing heavily during my latter part of high school and all throughout college,” GodsNd, born Jean Godsend Floradin, reflects on his transition into music. The artist was heavily inspired by 90s R&B. “The music had lyrics that told a story, a well-developed structure that included a bridge, and something that just left you feeling changed by the end,” he explains. GodsNd brings those influences back into his music with his characteristic style. Known for the particular way he pairs his lyrical choreography with the vocal leads and harmonies in his music’s melodic structure, the best way to denote GodsNd’s musical style is with its fluidity. That fluidity and utter relentlessness to be himself with complete authenticity have taken him far, and then some. His proudest moments include hearing his song played on the radio for the first time and winning Atlanta’s Coast2Coast competition. GodsNd has also worked on the Tony-nominated and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical Hamilton, and has begun doing his own work with Ne-yo. 

Indeed, GodsNd is persisting on his mission— to continue manifesting, keep building, and eventually give back to his community. On top of his musical accomplishments, GodsNd has performed at hospitals and community events with his Hamilton cast, hoping to share the same love for creativity and innovation—the love that has inspired so much of his work and life—with others. “I have a vision board where I have several things I’d love to manifest,” he says. “One of those would be a Billboard #1. I’d also love to open up an arts school in my home country of Haiti.” At his core, GodsNd wants to lead by example. “I’m just being me, and we all have a story to tell,” he notes. “Everyone’s story is valid, and once you start to appreciate that, you understand that all you need to do is let your light shine unapologetically, and people will notice. They will see you in them.”

Houston-based recording artist Dende rides down to “Georgia” with Platinum rapper Deante’ Hitchcock on his newest single. The TX-bred R&B singer showcases his tantalizing ability to seamlessly blend his lyrical skills with his soothing voice. The romantic ballad is Dende’s take on modern-day romanticism while staying true to who he is at his core. The self-proclaimed anime nerd continues to captivate his fan base by creating catchy hooks that boost his music’s replayability. 

“Georgia” is not Dende’s first collaboration with the Dreamville affiliate. Supporters of Dende & Deante’ alike have been begging the two young talents to reconnect musically since “Neck Up” featuring Bairi. Dende’s interesting life path and sense of humor have helped him cultivate a family-style fan base that isn’t afraid to be themselves. Although most R&B acts depend on their mystique, Dende’s vulnerability has helped him become one of the most relatable new upcoming acts in the underground space.

Inspired by indie legends like Chance The Rapper, Dende is excited to build upon the recent momentum of his impressive 2022. The silky-voiced crooner is gearing up for the release of his new EP, Before We Crash, set to arrive soon. Fans of artists like SminoLucky Daye, and Saba will gladly welcome Dende into their playlists.

YSL’s own BSlime releases a new project Love Me Or Don’t. The 15-track effort serves as a re-introduction to the burgeoning Atlanta rapper, made up of a diverse selection of well-composed tracks. The project features standout track “Whippin’ It” featuring Young Stoner Life Records patriarch and BSlime’s own uncle Young Thug, which is accompanied by a dynamic and futuristic visual. The tape also houses appearances from Toosie and more.

With Love Me Or Don’t BSlime showcases his melodic ability and skillful flows, giving listeners a whole new perspective on his music. The goal with the project is for fans to unstestand his authenticity. As he establishes himself as an artist, BSlime isn’t here to prove himself to anyone, but rather to simply be himself. About the project, he says “I’m not making music or going through life to “people please”. I’ll never be able to satisfy everyone. People will either love me or not regardless of what I drop and this is the inspiration behind the title.”

Love Me Or Don’t is the latest full length offering from BSlime,which is a direct follow up to his recently released single “Baguette” ft. Persona Jackson. BSlime is coming off of a monumental 2021, which included his features on Young Stoner Life’s #1 Billboard compilation album Slime Language 2 with “Really Be Slime” alongside YNW Melly and FN DaDealer and Young Thug’s acclaimed Punk, with “Peepin out The Window” with Future. Now, BSlime is ready to further establish himself as next up out of Young Stoner Life Records and carve out his own lane as one to watch out of Atlanta.
