R&B GIRL GROUP FLO SHARES HIGHLY-ANTICIPATED DEBUT EP “THE LEAD”

Published

on

London-based girl group FLO releases their highly-anticipated debut EP The Lead today.

Listen to The LeadHERE

“Our debut EP The Lead represents personal and professional growth because it’s taken so many twists and turns. We are young black women navigating life and musicians finding our voice and sound through R&B. Pop means popular, and R&B could be pop, but people need to give it the same love and chance. 

The Lead shows us that positive things can come from tough conversations, and reminds us to take the lead and not follow anyone else when making decisions on your relationships and listening to your truth,” says FLO on the EP.


“I’ve been working with the girls for the past 3 years – one of the first songs we wrote together was ‘Cardboard Box.’ The hour in which we wrote it – we just knew it had something very special. Then and even now, they’re so young and so driven, and push me equally as much as I push them to be competent songwriters and great recording artists. Stella, Jorja and Renée make a beautiful partnership when they sing together and I’m really happy they’ve found a trust in people like myself and Kabba, Jamal Woon and Ryan Ashley to help get what they stand for across in their music as an all-black R&B/pop act in 2022 – much less a girl group with all the ‘00s references included. I also just love working on projects that if I wasn’t working on it, I’d be stanning. And this is absolutely one of those projects,” says producer MNEK on working with FLO and the EP.


The future of R&B, FLO, represented by three young women: Jorja, Renée and Stella, show their personal and professional growth in the creation of a remarkable sound that hasn’t been heard in the music scene for decades. Tipped as Britain’s next big girl group, FLO’s new track “Immature” has already received instant praise from Little Mix’s Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Ella Mai. Working closely with their “extended family,” executive producer MNEKJamal Woon, KABBA and Aston RudiFLO hustled every day in the studio to create The Lead arranging their intricate three-part harmonies, which have been compared to Destiny’s Child and recalling peak-era Timbaland, Aaliyah and TLC. Capturing the essence of an act at the helm of their musical and visual identity, the 5-track EP features the first song they ever wrote together, the 10 million streaming viral sensation “Cardboard Box,” the sublime “Immature,” the pitch perfect neo soul hit “Another Guy,” R&B slow jam “Feature Me” and the slick, sensational summer anthem “Summertime.”

To coincide with the release, FLO drops the new video for their buzzworthy track “Immature” today.

Working closely with female director Avesta Keshtmand and movement director Kash Powell (Missy Elliot, FKA Twigs) on the video, StellaRenée and Jorja become heroines in a defiant, confident and groundbreaking visual.

Receiving love from global superstars including Missy Elliot, SZA, Victoria Monet and JoJo with one tweet stating “the uk girl groups are coming hard,” featuring a clip of debut video “Cardboard Box,” has led to over 3M views. FLO’s opening statement catapulted the group to the center of the cultural conversation about the important role girl groups play in our society. Peaking at #2 on the Viral Spotify UK Chart, “Cardboard Box” was an introduction to the girls’ love for honeyed harmonies and rich emotion, fusing the classic old school R&B they still obsess over.

Already receiving critical praise from i-D, NME, Complex and more, FLO’s immaculate harmonizing over MNEK productions that fuse early 00s R&B, complete with Irreplaceable-esque guitar figures and dancehall flavors, have captured the hearts of the nation. FLO has already built a loyal fanbase on TikTok (over 170k followers and 4.1m likes) having been named “the future of R&B” (Complex) for their stripped back a capella sessions, giving new life to their favorite tunes with unbreakable chemistry. 

It is FLO’s origin story that speaks to their name – it flowed. Stella spent the first few years of her life in Mozambique before moving to the UK aged five, and met Renée at school in London, where they bonded over their joint love of singing and were familiar with Jorja via social media. Jorja was born in Germany and grew up in Hertfordshire and was on her own musical journey, but it was a chance meeting at an audition where they all locked eyes: “I saw the girls and we screamed across the room. I knew from that moment we were about to start something big,” says Jorja.

Multiplatinum GRAMMY® Award-nominated Washington, D.C. rapper and Glizzy Gang Founder Shy Glizzy has just picked up a platinum plaque for his enduring banger “White Girl.” In order to celebrate this milestone, he unveiled the long-awaited music video for the track—streaming on his official YouTube Channel now.

The black-and-white clip unfolds as a cinematic affair. It brings the lyrics to life as it follows Shy Glizzy past an encounter with a paparazzi and into the arms of a blonde femme fatale. In between seductive vignettes in the bedroom and at the pool, tension builds until the bloody finale ensues. It might just be his most captivating and arresting video to date.

Of course, the track originally adorned his breakout 2014 mixtape, Young Jefe, which introduced his fan favorite series of the same name.

It also continues a prolific streak. He recently dropped “MMY Freestyle” and “Underrated.” He shot the eye-catching video for the latter in Dubai. Moreover, HotNewHipHop hailed “Underrated” as “airy and chilled-out,” and REVOLT plugged the video, “He spends the day cruising the desert in his luxury red whip before heading off to the local markets at night.”

In other big news, his now-legendary collaboration with Goldlink “Crew” [feat. Brent Faiyaz & Shy Glizzy] has gone 6x-platinum!

Pushing forward without apology, Shy Glizzy consistently proves the real is back as he prepares more music for 2023.

Shy Glizzy has redefined, reignited, and reupped the DMV as a stronghold for hip-hop. Along the way, he has gathered over 1 billion streams and shined on the gold-certified “Do You Understand” [feat. Tory Lanez & Gunna] and the platinum-certified “White Girl.” He broke through into the mainstream in a big way with his appearance on Goldlink’s 6x-platinum “Crew” [feat. Brent Faiyaz & Shy Glizzy], earning a GRAMMY® Award nod in the process. Beyond widespread praise from Pitchfork, The FADER, The Washington Post, and more, he received a coveted cosign from Beyoncé who famously bopped along to “Awwsome” at Global Citizen Festival. Not to mention, he also heads up his own Glizzy Gang label as C.E.O. He not only remains a pillar of the DMV, but the culture at large as he kicks off his next era in 2023.

Icewear Vezzo Connects with Jeezy, Gangsta Grillz Tape Out 12/8

Published

A slick-talking Detroit hero who’s steadily upped his ante in recent years, Icewear Vezzo drips with insights into successful street living. Teaming up with a fellow hustler for his latest music video, Vezzo shares “One Time” ft. Jeezy. Complete with the menacing piano lines and ominous bells that characterize many of Vezzo’s most beloved tracks, “One Time” is an anthem dedicated to the trappers and the flexers, with a countdown chorus that demands to be chanted by a crowd: “Three times for the n****s in heaven/Four times for the bad b*tches that’s steppin.” Vezzo and Jeezy are complemented by the energetic ad-libs of the legendary DJ Drama, who also appears in the music video. Directed by Diesel Films, the video finds Vezzo, Jeezy, and Drama relaxing in Vezzo’s native 6 Mile, as they turn up in an abandoned warehouse.

“One Time” hails from Paint The City, the upcoming mixtape by Icewear Vezzo. Hosted by DJ Drama, Paint The City is the latest edition of the DJ’s famous Gangsta Grillz series of tapes. The new video is the second glimpse of the upcoming tape, following God Bless The 6,” a collaboration with his fellow 6 Mile native Babyface Ray. The first full-length to be released since Vezzo signed to Quality Control MusicPaint The City is available everywhere on December 8th.

The upcoming tape arrives at the end of a banner year for the respected Detroit rapper. In July, Vezzo released his acclaimed Rich Off Pints 3, the concluding chapter of Vezzo’s signature mixtape series. Continuing the path set by 2021’s Rich Off Pints and Rich Off Pints 2, which generated a combined 150 million streams across platforms, Rich Off Pints 3 is the product of a man who has been through hell in the pursuit of better days. The tape recently earned praise from Pitchfork, who stated, “His latest project basks in the idea that an album this regionally specific can still have nationwide appeal.” Later in the summer, Vezzo connected with Kodak Black for It’s All On U,” a buzzing single that racked up over 5 million streams on Spotify and 11 million views on YouTube.

Vezzo’s new deal with Quality Control marks the start of an exciting new period of success for the budding superstar. Consistently racking up more than 4 million streams on his catalog per week, Vezzo’s ambitions reach far beyond music, and even beyond the physical realm. The Iced Up Records CEO is a serial entrepreneur, starting his own businesses in fields as diverse as real estate, cannabis, snacks (We Eatin! brand recently dropped Vezzo’s own flavor of chips, called Vezzo Hotz), and jewelry maintenance. Vezzo is on track to be a pioneer in the burgeoning metaverse, with his own VezzoVerse launching soon and a forthcoming line of NFTs.

With limitless ambition and the work ethic to achieve his every desire, it’s only a matter of time before Icewear Vezzo takes over the game.
