Forget Peterson; follow Ninali’s rules for life in her synthy soul pop meditation on mindfulness, Alive.

With her latest pop-dominated melting pot of genre and style, Alive, the singer-songwriter and co-producer Ninali celebrated life and gave her staunch fanbase a few lessons to live by. By eloquently alluding to the irrefutable truth that we all harness the power to choose what we expose ourselves to and ultimately, who we want to be, Ninali will undoubtedly guide countless people to the epiphany that the power to shape reality exists within us all.

The meditation on mindfulness is just as infectious as the hits from Black Honey, as poetic as the indie pop gems from She Drew the Gun, and effortlessly classy as April March. So it’s safe to say that the 18-year-old songstress is a triple threat that could easily find herself at the top of the charts if her songwriting chops remain as sharp as they were in Alive. Feel good tracks have never felt so damn good.

Ninali launched her latest single, Alive, on May 12; hear it on Spotify.

You Can Do Anything: Inspiring UK rapper Sugarae urges us to live out these dreams on ‘Alive’

As he thoughtfully bestows his memoirs about grappling through life until he realized that he needed a mentality shift, Sugarae shows us that it is unquestionably conceivable to bust through any restrictions on ‘Alive‘.

Sugarae is a fast-rising West Midlands, UK-based indie hip-hop artist and music producer who raps with an evenly tinted flow that is destined for greatness.

Brought up in a musical household where he found himself surrounded by a multitude of influences, Sugarae started out on the piano but quickly found himself obsessing over music production. Teaching himself to use FL Studio and Logic Pro with Youtube Tutorials, it wasn’t long before Sugarae was making professional beats for Grime Radio sets.” ~ Sugarae

There is a welcoming air of optimism from a self-confident man who has had to claw his way up the tree of life like a hungry kitty cat, who refuses to use up any more of those all-important nine lives. He raps with such a certain conviction and a must-hear attitude, that takes your alert mind into a positive place full of dreams that are attainable.

Alive‘ from the West Midlands, UK-based indie hip-hop solo artist and music producer Sugarae, shows us into a creative mind that has decided that anything is actually possible if you are focused enough. He leads us into a world that is filled with so much opportunity – if it is taken quickly and not wasted – with childish games that don’t lead you anywhere in life.
