Published

on

Matt McGhee (@Mattxmcghee) is continually proving why he’s one of one within the DMV music scene. His last LP, Everything Starts From Now, received critical acclaim, but he was not able to promote his project due to the pandemic properly. Now with a few years of experience behind him, he’s back with his newest album, ESFN (Extended Play). The 7-track project is a culmination of the thoughts and experiences he gained throughout his brief musical hiatus. The versatile wordsmith has been on a quest to take his music to the next level since his inception into the game.

Today, Matt McGhee is treating music like a business. After crafting his new GRAM Intl. imprint, he has helped create moments for his exciting roster. “I Like (You)” features budding DMV-based R&B superstar Al Hostile. The outro track serves as a cherry on top of an album that feels like dessert for his initial LP. “These Exchanges” has been a fan favorite since its release. The radio-friendly bop features LVRN’s new melodic star, Alex Vaughn

Fans of McGhee are excited to see what’s next for the confident recording artist leading into 2023. Although he isn’t too worried about what people think, it is clear that he is looking to become the best version of himself musically. Although he posts sparingly on social media, it is hard to know what the enigmatic rapper is up to. 

For now, press play on ESFN (Extended Play) today!

Marques Houston Returns To R&B With New Single “Last Drop”

Published

on

Marques Houston returns to R&B after a two-year break with the buzzing new single “Last Drop.”

The 42-year-old entertainer is making a strong comeback with his new track from the upcoming album The Best Worst Year Ever. “Last Drop” is a romantic serenade that interpolates Tevin Campbell’s “Can We Talk.”

Houston sings, “I wanna be the one that you call when you’re feeling low / I wanna be the one you can call on, girl, that’s for sure.”

“I wanted to get back to my nostalgic roots by paying homage to one of my favorite songs of all time, ‘Can We Talk’ by Tevin Campbell,” said Houston about making the new track. “I love the way that song makes me feel and the power it has to take me back to a moment of my many crushes as a teen. I wanted to create a rendition of the song and make it today’s generation’s soundtrack for their crushes.”

“Last Drop” was co-written by Houston and Ryan Hirt, with Jeffrey Toney on production. The song’s video pays homage to classic R&B visuals, featuring scenes of Houston dancing and singing in the rain.

“Last Drop” follows the release of “Admit It” in January. Both tracks will be featured on Houston’s upcoming album, due later this year. Additionally, he is expected to announce a headlining tour soon.

His new project follows his 2022 EP, ME: Dark Water, which included collaborations with Ray J and Monteco. With “Last Drop,” Houston aims to reignite the excitement he once stirred as “Batman” of the 1990s boy band Immature, later known as IMx. This new single, released via Phoenix Music Group, marks his return to the music scene.

L.A. RAP ARTIST WRAY DROPS FIERCE NEW SINGLE “THIS YA SONG” 

Published

on

Rising hip-hop and Rap artist Wray is set to conquer airwaves and playlists across the nation with the release of her latest single, “This Ya Song.” Infused with infectious beats and empowering lyrics, “This Ya Song” is a party anthem that exudes the essence of female empowerment.

Produced by JBM.E, “This Ya Song” has already received overwhelming support pre-release. Wray’s initial reaction to the positive feedback was nothing short of immense gratitude, remarking, “It’s nothing like I’ve received in the past. Loving the positive feedback, and support and seeing people already dancing to it and approaching me to sing the hook.”

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Wray’s musical journey began with the release of her debut project, “Just the Beginning,” in 2019, and she has since gone on to become a powerful force in the hip-hop and Rap scene. Her artistry draws inspiration from a wide array of influences including Missy Elliott, Busta Rhymes, Lil’ Kim, Suga Free, and E-40, with Nipsey Hussle serving as a contemporary muse. Wray’s performances are known for their captivating fusion of lyrical mastery and dynamic choreography, showcasing her versatility both as a musician and a dancer.

Addressing the male-dominated music scene in LA, Wray confidently shares, “There’s always talk about the West Coast not having a top lady to represent since Yo-Yo. As far as the men in the industry, I don’t spend too much time being intimidated due to the fact I am confident enough to know I’m cold. Also, receiving positive feedback from men in music makes me more confident honestly! Men are very picky when it comes to female rappers. So just hearing it, confirms I’m in the same game but in my own lane. That’s what makes me stand out also.”

With “This Ya Song” marking the beginning of her future projects, Wray is poised to leave an indelible mark on the West Coast music industry with her distinctive style and unapologetic approach. Her powerful presence and unrelenting determination solidify her position as an artist to watch, setting the stage for a groundbreaking Summer ahead.
