Desiire – Picasso
DESIIRE continues to expand creatively with his new tune “ PICASSO “ from his “ SHIFT “ EP Series. The tune is sonically driven by a bouncy staccato piano groove and an off kilter sing-rap flow that mixes the singer’s Congolose origins with Afrobeat inspired melodies with contemporary R&B cadences. The track comes off the release of the singer’s last single “ Reckless“ and continues the musical storytelling in an uplifting tone with motivated, autobiographical verses and a rhythmic chorus – Now available on all streaming services.
On The Fence – Better Than Nothing

Make sure to add this one to your favourite playlist.
Connor Evans – How Far Feat. Paper Paulk
Connor Evans is back with his new single “How Far” Feat. Cleveland rapper Paper Paulk.
Connor says the following about “How Far”:
“I met with Paper last year at A3C when I came through one of his shows and we instantly fucked with each other. We made it a point to get in the studio the next day and this was the result. I’d been begging Ellio to send some beat through and he happened to send this the day of the session and the second we threw it on we knew we were making this record. How Far is about a very special girl I met who I actually hung out with a couple days before I made this song. We had a crazy night and ended up at Magic City for her first strip club experience. The songs about realizing I know this could beyond just a casual thing, and asking her how far do you want to take this.”
Gladius James – Too Bad
Gladius James is a triple-threat musician who sings, writes, and produces his own material. Today, he releases his vibey, slow-burning debut single “Too Bad.” In “Too Bad,” a song about the sex appeal of confidence, he makes a coy and vulnerable entrance with richly harmonic vocals that play off glitched-out, pop-industrial beats.
The track features such come-ons as “I’m about to mess your hair up/Kiss that lipstick off.” “The first thing I think about when I listen to ‘Too Bad’ isn’t the sonics,” he says. “It’s that it has movement. The song is so intense like that, because it came so quickly to me.”
