Swerving cars to get there in time: Gray raps his way into the hot lane on ‘Last Call’

Gray is a Washington D.C born multi-skilled singer-songwriter, author, producer, and actor who is now based in the entertainment mecca of Los Angeles. He jumps into our minds real quick on the enthralling new single ‘Last Call’.

A lover of the classic Motown music and style, this is an old soul who loves to perform live and give the crowd a night to remember.

The mysterious beginning is brief and grabs your attention closely as the telephone call filters into the speaker and then is finished. The smooth rap lyrical delivery is tight like a speedy UPS driver. There is no messing around here, getting it done is all that matters.

There is no second thoughts here, nothing involving lame indecisiveness and wishy-washy car wash nonsense. This is when you jump in the car to go see her and a speeding ticket is probably on the way but that’s okay. It will be worth it. You shouldn’t be with her but it’s way too good to care or catch feelings at this present time.

His stylish demeanor is easy to spot and the beat matches this self-motivated entertainer who has evolved, made his own lane and is speeding right through it hot. The raps are consistent and so catchy the chorus will be stuck in your brain all week. This is a sign of a top Hip Hop track that isn’t mumble and wack. This is a big boy and big girl music.

Diquan Julius shines so bright on ‘LaLa Land’

The soulful singer Diquan Julius brings us a melody and groove that is bound to make babies on ‘LaLa Land‘.

Diquan Julius is a DC-based soul-singer-songwriter who sings with such energy and love. With a love for all types of music, Diquan has ventured in both the R&B and Gospel industry where he became a billboard charting artist with his group UTK. No, he is fully solo and ready for more.

At the age of 3, Diquan started singing in every one of his church’s choirs except the senior choir but always felt that his mother forced him to sing on Sundays. Eventually, he became a lover of music as well as gained confidence in his voice
which has landed him great opportunities such as performing the National Anthem at the Washington Wizards basketball game and singing background for the legendary Eric Benet. Thank you for Mom for giving him the motivation needed to burst on the scene.

My only wish is that this song could of been a big longer. Perhaps that is the point? This DC singer shines like a bright sky after a huge rainstorm. Diquan Julius speaks of love on ‘LaLa Land‘. He washes our souls with a top performance here that is all about that feeling you get inside sometimes. That love feel that no one else can feel for you. This is a talented musician that is building up his name after each release.

Julian Wild calms the world down and reminds us that ”Life’s Too Good to Waste”

The Brightroom Sessions, Vol. II by Julian Wild

Julian Wild is a soulful indie singer-songwriter from Washington, DC in the USA. I am so inspired by his music and am in such an thoughtful mood while writing this article about his new song. Julian’s voice is so pure and the guitar skills are absolutely magnificent. This is kind of music that is so rare these days.

Life’s Too Good To Waste” is taken from The Brightroom Sessions, Vol. II, released on the 1st May 2020. I feel like I’m sitting on a comfy beanbag at an intimate music festival listening to Julian. His voice is so authentic and his music so chilled with a raspy tone that sticks in your head. This song is all about being grateful and optimistic about life no matter what is going on.

Julian Wild sings about peace and love. This is the kind of music that is needed right now in a world full of hatred and division. He is the kind of musician that our youngsters need to hear so they know that there in a light at the end of the tumultuous tunnel.

To hear this very soothing song that I recommend for yoga and/or meditation go through to Bandcamp.

LUV Cleo releases Good Night (prod. Guala Beatz x Paragon)

Hip-Hop and Rap combine together for single ‘Good Night’ by Rapper LUV Cleo, keeping that upbeat rhythm flowing through.

Intertwining that rather electronic style melody with the distorted voices and eerie high-pitched beats that combine with the in your face beat that pulses in and out of the overall track, keeping that full-on pure energy throughout each second.

With this one the pace is kept at a fairly slow one for a Rap, even though sometimes it does tend to speed up the overall flow is slowed down, you can hear every word clearly even though the beat does tend to drown out the actual vocals. The Rap itself is perfectly timed with everything else, it’s all kept at the right pitch and the way it all collides with each other is what makes this piece stand out,

If Rap is your thing then be sure to listen to Good Night, it’s got an insane beat that you won’t want to miss!

Listen to LUV Cleo Good Night by heading on over to SoundCloud now.
