Pop meets Chill Hop in IIsaiah Bennett’s Blissfully Sweet 3rd single “Ride with Me”

While some artists have felt hindered by the lockdown, up and coming Pop artist IIsaiah Bennett has perceptibly been inspired and put his talent to good use.

After making their debut with “Corona” and following it up with the incredible sophomore release “Right Here”, they’ve dropped yet another blissfully sweet single “Ride with Me”. The resonance within the track allows it to unfold like an aural cuddle. That’s as close to a cuddle as some people are going to get these days.

With rhythmically magnetic nuances of Hip Hop in the Pop mix, Ride with Me will add plenty of high vibe groove to your playlists. The melodic beats may be soft, but there’s little chance you’ll forget the deftly orchestrated hit which you’ll be all too happy to give repeat attention.

Pop Artist Belly Harding Releases Her Latest Single “Mi Amor”

Pop Singer-songwriter Belly Harding has been creating rhythmically upbeat soundscapes since 2000, after having a break from recording, the release of her single “Mi Amor” released on October 17th marks her return.

With her Congo roots, she’s injected a little more organic rhythm in Mi Amor than what you’ll find in a typical Pop single. there are also tonally rich elements of R&B Pop weaved into the mix. While we could definitely appreciate the nostalgic 90s Pop behind Mi Amor mixed in with the contemporary EDM beats, the single was slightly predictable.

And, there’s no denying that Belly Harding possesses strong vocals, but it was hard to feel that the lyrics actually contributed to the single given the amount of repetition of the title. Having said that, it’s still an incredibly catchy hit, which may just become your next earworm.

Lucas James – Sleeping Beauty: The Romanticism of Urban EDM Pop

Whilst there is no shortage of up and coming artists producing romantically inclined tracks, many fall at the first hurdle by composing a beat which serves to tell a story or express an emotion and failing to allow that feeling to resonate within the listener. With his latest single “Sleeping Beauty” Lucas James proved to be a refreshing exception. With Sleeping Beauty Lucas composed an immersive, expressive Pop ballad which carries a cathartic amount of Urban ambience.

Sleeping Beauty is the first track from the emerging artist’s upcoming EP “Nocturnal”, having already made a promising debut with his first single, it’s hard to imagine that the London-based Alt Pop artist will struggle when it comes to getting the attention his radio-ready hits deserve.

You can check out the single yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud where Lucas James has been kind enough to let fans download for free.
