R&B SENSATION KENDY X SHARES DEBUT PROJECT ‘MISPLACED’

Published

on

Long Beach-raised R&B singer/songwriter Kendy X makes her highly anticipated debut with the release of Misplaced EP out now via Rose Records. An evocative collection of songs that magnetically draws listeners in with her poignant and amative lyrics dazzled with her indomitable sense of confidence, Misplaced celebrates the strength in choosing yourself and forging a path of self-love in the most heaviness of times. The title hints at Kendy X’s continued growth on this journey.

Misplaced can mean a lot of different things, depending on who you are,” Kendy X shares. “Personally, I misplaced who I thought was. I would belittle myself and not step into my power. I was lost. At the end, I found myself.” “This project is about finding yourself and becoming the woman you are meant to be and not changing for anybody.”

The six-track EP is the product of the prodigious R&B rising star whose natural talent as an artist has flourished from self-growth and in-studio collaborations with elite Grammy-Winning producers Ayo n Keyz (Beyonce, Cardi B, Chris Brown) and Grammy Nominated Producer AVB (Queen Naija, Eric Bellinger, Rotimi).

In addition to the EP’s critically acclaimed single, Kendy X’s debut single, “For Me,” featuring DreamDoll and Kalan.Fr.Fr (charted Top 20 on Billboard’s R&B Digital Song Sales Chart), Misplaced features five new songs that speak to the hopes, insecurities and beauty we experience as we navigate the journey of knowing and loving ourselves and others and traces Kendy X’s journey over unpredictable R&B soundscapes uplifted by her skyscraping vocals.

Boosted by a throwback nineties-style groove, the opener “Let Me Be” examines what she calls “a relationship where you’re trying to figure out what’s on the other person’s mind and how you can be perfect for the situation.” Elsewhere, “Pull Me Back” ebbs and flows with the tumultuousness of a toxic relationship where “you’re breaking up, making up, and getting pulled back in all the time,” as she puts it. Flaunting her confidence, a bass-y keyboard melody underscores the sassy “Catch This” as she coyly warns, “You gonna mess around and lose me to somebody else.” “Options” delivers to soulful sonics blanketed by blissful storytelling of Kendy’s voyage with overcoming relationship hardships as she toys with the idea of turning a new page. Then, there’s “Celebrate.” Her airy delivery floats over finger-snaps and a slick beat as she sets the stage for a sultry reunion, “I can’t wait to celebrate.

As Kendy X builds a promising path in the R&B world, she gears up for the spotlight stage as the official opening act alongside Los Angeles’ own Kalan. FrFr for his Never Lose You Tour, which kicked off last night in Orlando, FL. For more information visit: www.kalanfrfr.com

Teenear Samples Brandy’s “The Boy Is Mine” on her Single Release “Ain’t Mine” 

Published

Teenear Renee began singing with the praise team of her church in her hometown of Miami, Florida. She later started performing solo at talent shows. 

A version of Rihanna’s “Stay” went over so well that she started a YouTube channel — after her parents’ strong encouragement — to gain wider exposure. Uploads of “Stay” and other covers caught the attention of the Miami-based Slip’N’Slide label, resulting in a recording contract. In 2015, the year she graduated high school, Teenear debuted with “Friday Night,” featuring a guest verse from Sage the Gemini. 

Follow-up “Streetlights‘ ‘ arrived in 2016, followed shortly thereafter by a dancehall-flavored remix with an appearance from labelmate Trina. A handful of additional tracks, including the sparkling Fetty Wap collaboration “Love Me or Leave Me” and the beaming ballad “Need Your Love,” were scattered across 2017 and 2018. 

At the height of the pandemic and social justice with the likes of the George Floyd assualt/murder, Teenear returned to Music with her song “Free” lending her voice and platform to the conversation and activism toward freeing those most affected by police brutality, and racisim. 

The singer, after two years, returns to music full time with her leading single “Ain’t Mine” debuting May 13th 2022. The single samples the living legend Brandys 1998 hit song “the boy is mine” 

Teenear’s label Slip N Slide is excited about this release.

Known for his work with Drake, Eminem, DJ Khaled, Young M.A., and more, multi-platinum, Grammy-nominated producer Mike Zombie has been relatively quiet since the formation of his Don Juligans group and the launch of his WAV TECH app in 2021. 

Now, the self-proclaimed “Humble Genius” gifts fans with a surprise release in the form of celebratory Marcus Mayhem-produced song, “Triumphant.” The motivational, horn-driven track finds the Jersey-bred rapper/producer radiating confidence as he spits some boastful rhymes addressing competition and his own resilience.

“I used to make beats in college with my brother..he actually sent me this beat from this producer named Marcus Mayhem and it immediately screamed anthem when I heard it. 

The first thing that came out my mouth was ‘this sound like somethin ****** this sound triumphant.’ I love making motivational music and it seems people love hearing it .. it’s starting to be my lane. Album on the way,” Zombie shares with us. 

“Triumphant” is expected to appear on Mike Zombie’s forthcoming album, Nice Guys Finish First, dropping on all platforms June 2022. Stream the single below on your preferred streaming platform.
