It’s gritty, it’s salacious, yet, there’s still such a raw sense of romanticism within the production. Shakespeare may spin in his grave if he heard it, but this old school romantic can definitely appreciate BigJohn’s ability to cook up a soulfully sexy Hip Hop earworm.

The melodically grooving beats create the perfect platform for the artist’s RnB-style Rap bars, the aural cherry on the cake are the haunting vocal samples which amplify the sense of unfaltering passion which BigJohn set up so well.

Chicago singer-songwriter D’Zhari drops dramatic visuals for ‘Alone’

Chicago singer-songwriter D’Zhari has just dropped her dramatic visuals for the new single called ‘Alone‘.

An artist who aims for the listener to be provided with soul food, she strives to create a blended style drawing upon R&B, Soul, and Jazz to lift the spirits of her audience. D’Zhari certainly reaches her goal, her voice so elegant and the music so well-made, from love.

D’Zhari sings with such passion on ‘Alone‘. You can see that she doesn’t want to do this journey all by herself, the thought of it is so scary for the lovely singer. She has such a fine voice, the style is so elegant and always with class. In a genre that can be so smutty, she is the guiding light here that proves that great music still wins. This is an R&B track all about not wanting to face this world alone, which as humans we shouldn’t be subjected to. facing the world as a team is much better. This is a quality track, full of love and heart.

The Human Nature show us lots of colors and hope on ‘No Escape’

No Escape‘ is the vibrant new song from The Human Nature and the band from Norway don’t disappoint.

The Human Nature are a Norwegian band from the South East and their signature sound comprises a lot of synthesizers, heavy drums, vocal harmonies and a distorted Les Paul. They are such a creative band, they visualize so well and this is a marvel to listen to. I feel peaceful all inside and this is a fine song.

The search for love right now is so hard to find, you need to be with someone that is careful with your heart. You want someone that is kind and who champions your dreams and pushes you to reach them. Covid has made finding this love so difficult but it is possible.

The music of The Human Nature is infectious and sweet, you want to listen to this song again and again. I like how this song builds up and up, the energy is radiant and fresh. ‘No Escape‘ is a quality new single that speaks to our hearts.
