With the hook right before the chorus, the form of the trancey beats will stick with you for long after the track has faded to a close. And notably, they held nothing back lyrically.

There’s been plenty of hype around breaking Hip Hop artist KiDD RicH since they made their debut with the single “Comfortable” in 2019. On the heels of their successful singles, they’ve dropped their debut album “The Statement, Vol. 1”.

Up and coming RnB artist Jaye Wood has dropped their amorously sincere single “Trophy Boy”

Jaye Wood

Finding an RnB Pop hit which holds the same level of sincerity as Jaye Wood offered in his latest single Trophy Boy would be like attempting to find a needle in a haystack.

Instead of the usual superficiality offered by love songs, Jaye Wood dug deep lyrically to find sentiments which scream integrity. There’s a smorgasbord of emotion which moves beyond the usual two-dimensional love songs. It recognises that love doesn’t require two perfect infallible people, instead, it requires undying passion. If this sweet summer jam appeased my cold soul, I have plenty of faith that the radio-ready single will warm countless hearts.

Jaye Wood’s latest single Trophy Boy is available to stream on all major streaming services via this link.

Chris Buxton has dropped their Sun-Kissed Indie Trap Pop Hit “Caught Up”.

Chris Buxton’s latest single “Caught Up” is a sun-kissed Indie Trap Pop hit which serves up a serious amount of sticky-sweet soul.

You’d be hard-pressed to find another Summer Pop hit with vibes which can take you higher than the ones which you’ll soak up in Caught Up. The infusion of Indie nuances allows Caught Up to be connectable and sincere, while the elements of Hip Hop add fire to the Pop-style production.

The short and sweet hit which Chris Buxton created in collaboration with Rap artist Trev is beyond radio-ready. It’s perennial Pop earworm material. Much like the South Carolina-based Alternative artist’s former releases.
