Kush – Dolo

Kush is starting the year off right. This week, the Chicago based lyricist debuted the visual for his single “Dolo.”

“Dolo” is an ode to Kush’s loyalty and the visual could not be more befitting. Despite aerial shots of Chicago and pristine editing Brian Edwards kept the concept of the visual simple, focusing on Kush and his performance. In a refreshing change of pace, Kush appears in most of the scenes alone. In other scenes he accompanied by one other person, but unlike some his past visuals at no point does he appear with an entourage.

G. Mitch Knows Girls Need Love

Summer Walker made waves in 2018 with the smash “Girls Need Love.” G. Mitch is starting 2019 riding those very waves with his soulful remix to “Girls Need Love.”

“Girls Need Love” was undoubtedly one of the biggest songs of the summer and though summer days are long gone, G. Mitch’s “Girls Need Love” provides just as much heat. G. Mitch’s uniquely soulful sound puts a spin on the song anyone could appreciate.

A bit longer than the original G. Mitch’s “Girls Need Love” is even a bit different. While G. Mitch took the liberty of rewriting the lyrics he certainly didn’t lose any of the song’s integrity.

Chris Brown is Undecided

Megastar Chris Brown has started 2019 off right with the debut of his single “Undecided” and the accompanying visual.

The song is a catchy and light hearted bop with a sample of Shanice’s 90s hit “I Love You Smile.” The subject matter differs a bit from its predecessor. On “Undecided” Brown explores his obvious feelings for the young lady he’s entertaining, however he is still hesitant to commit. “Undecided” maybe Brown’s most relatable song yet.

The visual consists of the multitalented Virginia native breaking into a closed waterside amusement park where he finds a balloon that doubles as a gateway to another realm. In secondary realm happens to be one where the amusement park is bustling and Brown is on a date. Almost as cute and light hearted as the song, the visual for “Undecided” is fun to say the least.

Slitta Makes Every Effort to Take Care

2019 is already looking good for Slitta. The Chicago based recording artist renewed his contract with D1CMG just before ringing in the new year and ever since the videos have been rolling in. Today, Slitta debuted the visual for “Take Care.”

In the most appropriate way ever “Take Care” closes out Slitta’s 2018 release Pink & Red. A peek at Slitta’s softer side, the song explores the downside of a relationship. The song features samples of Boyz II Men’s “4 Seasons of Loneliness” as well as Jagged Edge’s “Walked Outta Heaven” in a creative combination guaranteed to capture the attention of any true r’n’b fan.

As if the song itself didn’t garner enough attention, LakeShoreHy directed one of the most relatable visuals ever. Slitta put his acting skills on display and undoubtedly deserves applause for it. However the show may have very well been stolen by his co-star, newly signed D1CMG A&R Yo Carlie.

APOLLOSOGODLY – PVO

APOLLOSOGODLY is ending the fourth quarter on a high note. Today, the Chicago based artist dropped his album PVO.

After the success of his lead single “Undergrad” APOLLOSOGODLY certainly had a buzz surrounding his movement. Less than two months later he has delivered an entire album worth the same, if not more notoriety.

PVO is 13 tracks of melodic lyrics. APOLLOSOGODLY has a unique sound that makes him an incredibly versatile artist. That versatility carries PVO. APOLLOSOGODLY leaves fans wanting for nothing with PVO. He addresses a variety of topics using a number of different flows, keeping things interesting.

August Alsina Debuts Like You Love Me

Though he’s been relatively quiet this year, August Alsina has certainly been busy. The New Orleans born singer kicked all of his addictions and today blessed fans with a visual for his brand new single “Like You Love Me.”

A little heavier, but in a great way August Alsina is looking and sounding good for “Like You Love Me.” The visual opens with a scene extremely reminiscent of D’Angelo’s “Untitled (How Does It Feel).” From there things only get steamier with the 25 year old performing laying across a bed. The visual reaches new heights when he’s joined by a scantily clad co- star and they spend the rest of the visual caressing and kissing one another.

Though the visual is simple, it is befitting of the single. “Like You Love Me” may be the most adult song Alsina has released to date. The new sound and new look are perfect.

The Messiah’s White Cups

 

The Messiah is no new comer to hip hop. But in the last year his loyal fan base has grown leaps and bounds and it looks like the Chicagoan may soon become a household name. His most recent visualWhite Cups” is pretty evident of why The Messiah is gaining so much success.

“White Cups” is the definitive representation of sex, drugs, and rock and roll so to speak. The Messiah teamed up with Will Mass to capture the lifestyle of a popping rapper in less than two and a half minutes. Despite the length of the visual or lack there of “White Cups” delivers all of the necessary elements for a rap video.

While it is debatable that Queen Envi’s performance makes it quite possible to watch “White Cups” without sound, the song is still pretty important. The Messiah delivers witty lyrics in an original cadence that keeps fans engaged. Despite being fun, “White Cups” is lyrically interesting and real hip hop.
