O.G. Charlie Frank$$$ – Never Have To Question My Love

OG Charlie Frank$$$ drops new single ‘Never Have to
Question My Love’

HOUSTON, TX – Music that has staying power is music that’s well put together and has substance to it. OG Charlie Frank$$$ is the kind of artist whose music will be around 100 years from now because it not only has substance and quality, but it also has a timeless quality to it that’s reminiscent of some of the legends of the industry.

Hailing from Houston, Texas, this hip-hop artist is one of the industry’s most highly regarded trendsetters. He’s the kind of artist who takes the legendary sounds of the past and fuses them with new-wave sounds of the future to create truly original music that will still be impressing fans for years to come. He first influenced and pioneered the mid-1980s sounds of hip-hop throughout Houston, alongside other legends like Mr. Scarface and the Safoolz. In the mid-1990s he introduced a new style of music he calls “screw music” or “slab music,” collaborating with the iconic DJ Screw. And by the 2000s he was taking those sounds and melding them with his own unique style to create a fad that swept the nation through his work alongside Sauce Walka and Sancho Sauce.

Following those decades of success, OG Charlie Frank$$$ is ready to release his newest project – a 15-track EP he’s calling “The OG.” It’s a project that will talk about his experiences with life and the game, his time on the streets and even some of the politics of the world. Of course the project reflects his unique perspective on life while dealing with the realities of the world in ways that anyone can relate with.

“The thing that sets me apart is my perspective,” he said. “I have a distinct perspective about life. From my experience from the streets I have a different insight about things that a lot of other artists couldn’t talk about. A lot of my songs are stories from my life, but sometimes I’ll just dibble and dabble and do stuff for fun. But mostly I’m talking about life. And that’s because I want my music to be known for its authenticity and real-ness. I want my music to have a shelf-life where 100 years from now you can pick up my album and feel that experience all over again. That’s what I love about ‘70s music – you can pick up anything from that era and it still makes you feel the same way.”

The first single of OG Charlie Frank$$$’s new EP is a song called “Never Have to Question My Love.” The song features a sample from a Biggie song. OG said he took a Biggie riff and put a little “Southern flavor over it.” Ultimately the song is about infidelity and the stuff people go through in a relationship to prove their love, even when they mess up sometimes. The overall vibe of the single has a ‘90s swing to it, and OG said it’s just some “feel-good, throw-back music.”

In addition to his new music, OG Charlie Frank$$$ has a record label under Street Playa
Entertainment with his Greatest Hits CD coming out very soon, something for fans to look out for. He also has a clothing line called Strydgees – which means “warrior spirit.”

Wes Jamell – Its A Go

Wes Jamell Showcases authenticity and Originality
with New Single “It’s a Go”

MAYSVILLE, KY – From out of Northern Kentucky – just a few miles down the road from Cincinnati – comes a versatile new rapper and artist named Wes Jamell. This one-time budding basketball star has been shot, stabbed and seen several sides of the street life, but through it all still managed to graduate college – in large part due to basketball, and its that struggle and journey that he has taken to the center stage with his music.

His most recent offering to the world is a single called “It’s a Go.” It’s a personal song full of aggression – with four minutes of straight bars that are so intriguing they literally pull you in, forcing you to give the track your attention. Though the song doesn’t have a chorus, Jamell said anyone who hears the song will be just as entertained in the 4th minute as they were the 1st.

“When I originally made the song I was hearing a lot of sneak dissing and hating going on,” Jamell said. “So this track was specifically made for them nig*as and bit*h-as* nig*as like them. It’s definitely an aggressive track, but the fans won’t fully get to know me until they witness my versatility as an artist. My versatility is something I believe the industry and my growing fan base will definitely be attracted to and appreciate. I’m a very solid dude, yet I have a heart that’s more genuine than most, feel me?”

Jamell said he can’t remember a day when music wasn’t a part of his life. From the time he was a young kid he was surrounded by family members and friends who loved to sing and rap. By age 11 he was writing his own raps and studying some of the greats from 2Pac, Bone Thugs N Harmony, & 3-6 Mafia, to 90’s R&B from R-Kelly to Jodeci, while still being inspired by some artist of today. But to Wes, ORIGINALITY IS KEY!

One of the first songs he dropped a couple of years ago when he first started taking music more seriously was a track called “My Niggas,” which speaks upon him being shot and some other life-or-death situations he and some of his close friends have endured.  His city loved the song because they were aware of the authenticity behind it, & quickly attracted to his movement.

“I’m from a small-a*s town, but as far as drugs and all that go I was brought up in the less- fortunate part of the city, so drugs and violence has always been around me,” he said. “It’s very hard to not become somewhat a product of your environment, even though it is possible. But with all the negativity I try and keep my music as positive as I can without sugar-coating things. As a city, we are kind of in the middle of nowhere – being like 45 minutes from Cincinnati and maybe an hour away from Lexington, which are significantly bigger cities.”

Eventually, Jamell said he hopes to put together the kind of career that will allow him to support the people around him – his loved ones and those who have believed in him every step of the way. This new single is the next step toward making that dream happen. The song is available now on iTunes, Spotify and all other major music-sharing platforms – as is a mixtape of the same name, “It’s a Go.” Next in motion is music video for the single that will be shot by Cole Bennett, a videographer who has been taking the professional industry by storm – shooting for the likes of Kevin Gates, Lil Pump, Lil Skies, Lil Xan and Juice Wrld, just to name a few. Bennet said he really liked the song and that “A dope visual to it will definitely set things off,” which Jamell said helps him to believe that he’s up next.

Freako Bandeedo – Thought You Knew

Seattle Based Hip-Hop Artist Tells His Story in New Single “Thought You Knew”

SEATTLE, WA – The Pacific Northwest has been home to Freako Bandeedo, and he plans to make definite waves in the region. Originally from Texas, the artist spent a majority of his childhood being surrounded by music. His father played in a huge Mexican band, which mesmerized Freako. He was always some part of the mix, from going on tours alongside his father to dabbling into playing trumpet. This introduction into the industry paved the road to success ahead of Freako Bandeedo.

After moving to Atlanta, he found himself gravitating toward the city’s style of hip-hop music. He began listening to T.I. and 50 Cent, which played a big role in his transition into rap music. “Once I moved to the Pacific Northwest, I started making beats with my friends from school. The cool thing about coming from a background in Hispanic music is that once I learned how to make music my own, any other style wasn’t hard to pick up. The only thing that differentiates is the language,” said the artist. In the midst of figuring out his footing, he never let any hate or negativity get in the way of pursuing his true dreams.

Freako Bandeedo’s Soundcloud page consists of a full roster of his mixtape songs. He’s excited to soon release his first official professional song called “Thought You Knew”, which tells the story of him rising above certain people who initially doubted him. “It all started out as people not believing in me. I’ve been sticking to a story of who I am, where I am going and how I’m gonna get there. The song is very hype,” said Freako. All of his songs illicit the same positive reaction from his fans no matter what the style is.

Fans will want to look out for the upcoming release of “Thought You Knew”, as well as the music video. As Freako is always working toward his goals, he’s already working on his next project. He knows the quality of work that goes into making it big, and he’s not afraid to put those hours in. “If you have a dream, no matter what it is, if it makes you happy, then you should pursue it. Let the hate come, be strong with it, and don’t let it get to you. You want it, you will get it.”

CodeBoy Sai – Feel This

CODEBOY SAI INSPIRES LISTENERS TO LIVE BY THE C.O.D.E.

NEWARK, DE — CodeBoy Sai releases his “CODE LIFE” project to introduce listeners to the C.O.D.E. way of life. “CODE LIFE& paints a picture vividly of what millions of today’s youth navigate through every day. The struggle between enjoying life and handling their business, whether that’s working a job or going to school… CODE LIFE inspires people to accomplish their dreams and goals regardless of what others say. C.O.D.E. – Capable of Destroying Everything (that tries to stop you) – is the motto to live by, encouraging people to accomplish all of their dreams, regardless of the opposition.

“College-Party Life” based artist, Code Boy Sai, linked up with producer FAXONLY to create his first solo album released on all major streaming platforms. After working side-by-side with FAXONLY for six months, they released “CODE LIFE” on June 22. CodeBoy Sai strives on the CODE brand being a platform for teaching youth and the world to go for it, no matter what the dream is. By using his businesses, social media, and now music, he tries to motivate others through every outlet possible.

“As a kid growing up in a small state like Delaware, I had to have the CODE

mentality all the time.” CodeBoy Sai stated. “From starting businesses at 14 years old to starting a national campaign to end the effects of absent fathers at the age of 15 (We Need Our Fathers), to now going after my dreams as an artist while pursuing my degree, I want to show the world and today’s youth that every dream is possible.”

CodeBoy Sai has released a video for one of the top tracks on “CODE LIFE,” called “Banjee.” He has also recently filmed a video for track No. 2, “Feel This,” and is preparing to release in time for the “Back to School” anthem for college students. “Feel This” is an anti-hater anthem letting haters know it is OK to like something someone else does.

Janaesound – Diamonds

Portland Based Singer and Songwriter Janaesound Inspires
Fans with New Single “Diamonds”

PORTLAND, ME– Janaesound has an extremely robust musical background, and started her singing career at a very young age. From learning the ropes in opera music to being a part of the children’s chorus, she started to develop a passion for music extremely quickly. As she kept navigating through her own musical journey, she found herself often writing a variety of songs, including those of her peers. Once she decided she wanted to buckle down and make a career out of music, she never looked back. You’ll quickly come to realize how much of a work horse she is. Nothing worth having comes easy, and Janaesound will be the first to tell you the importance of hard work.

Once Janaesound moved to Maine, she opened herself up to a completely brand new market. Shortly after experiencing the death of her grandmother, she decided she was no longer going to be behind the scenes. Immediately, she plunged into the journey head first, and things quickly took off. She continued to perform at festivals in her community, and the positive response from each crowd confirmed she was doing exactly what she was born to do. “At one point, I felt like I had always been in the shadows. Once I started performing, I never stopped.” said the artist. Known for her dynamic vocals, her range goes beyond the average artist’s. She’s all about making “feel good anthems”, and cheering her fans up as she empowers them to overcome struggles and obstacles.

In most recent news, Janaesound released her new single, “Diamonds”, a few weeks ago. The song is a slow-moving, pop rock ballad, and details the obstacles she has overcome in her journey. “I wrote it in a dark period. But the song’s purpose is to encourage anyone on their journey, wherever they are. There’s a light at the end of the tunnel, so I hope the song inspires people to realize this,” said Janaesound. The song has already raked in over 13,000 streams on Spotify alone in such a short amount of time. It’s also been holding steady on several radio stations in her area, which will quickly make her a household name at this rate.

Due to the song’s overall popularity among fans, she’s already booked more shows, as the demand for her music is hot. Admitting there’s not a huge machine behind her, Janaesound considers the single a huge win. She has accomplished so much in such a short amount of time, which is inspiring for any fellow up and coming artists.

Up next, the artist has several more originals on the EP she plans to release by this fall. Janaesound has a goal of rolling things out once a month in order to let the world know exactly who she is. She even has a major show coming up at the legendary New York City Bitter End on September 29th, and plans to release another single on August 17th entitled “Break Me Down.

“My thing is that I’ll never give up. I never stop trying to make someone else smile. There’s so much going on in this business. My special gift is I’m persistent, driven and focused,” said Janaesound. As she continues to keep things moving forward, she refuses to give up. Janaesound can never be outworked.

Tracy – Broken Record

Friends come together over mutual heartbreak experiences;
prepare to release new EP ‘Dear Diary’

LOS ANGELES, CA – There are thousands of women in the world who have experienced heartbreak and pain. LA-based friends Necia and Sabree are no exception. After years of singing in groups and whirlwind relationships, the two have come together to form a duo with the intention of creating music that will help women who have experienced similar life struggles. And their collaboration lives under the alter-ego Tracy.

“Tracy is a name and an identity that encapsulates this whole idea,” Sabree said. “We are both individuals, but our experiences are the same and we know that there are other women out there who feel the same. As we began to talk about these things, we thought about labeling this as a person who has been through all of these things. So Tracy represents a strong, independent woman. She’s highly sophisticated, highly beautiful and carries herself classy and strong. But the secret behind her is that she’s actually broken.”

Tracy will make her debut later this fall when the duo releases its first EP “Dear Diary.” It’s an eight-song project that Sabree said will explore heartbreak – not just the idea of being hurt, but the deep pains that can often last for a lifetime and that stem from poor relationships. So many women around the world deal with low self-esteem and identity issues because of experiences like this, and Tracy will speak directly to those women through music.

“We hope that women out there will hear the music and understand that they are Tracy, too, Sabree said. “We want them to hear the music and admit that they were Tracy, and now they’re whole and complete because that music has got them through it. The music makes them face the truth.”

The first single from the EP is called “Broken Record,” and is already available on all digital download platforms. The song details a situation in which you’ve given a person multiple second chances in a relationship, to the point that their apologies and mistakes begin to sound like a broken record. Sometimes we let that broken record to keep playing for so long in our lives that it leaves deep and lasting scars. But Sabree and Necia want those who hear their music to know that if they can overcome those experiences, others can, too.

It’s been quite a journey for the two friends. First meeting in college, the two bonded over a mutual love for dance and music. As they pursued their passions together, they eventually formed a group that for many years toured dancing and singing all across the country. After the group disbanded the friends stepped away from music for awhile, but their shared experiences with heartbreak eventually brought them back together and they decided to create Tracy. And as they prepare to launch their first EP, they know that their many years of experience in the business – including appearances on television and multiple stage performances – will give them an advantage as they grow their fanbase.

Heartbreak kidd – Bring em Over

Heartbreak Kidd launches R&B track of the
summer with ‘Bring ‘em Over’

LOS ANGELES, CA – At only 18 years old, Louis Anthony is already a heartbreaker.

What started as a dare by his friends during his sophomore year of high school to record an album before graduation has blossomed into a full-blown music career. The young crooner from Los Angeles is making a lane within the industry already at a young age with his smooth,
airy R&B vocals layered over wavy beats. His style is the best parts of Chris Brown, The Weeknd and Bryson Tiller. And that vocal prowess is put on full display with his newest single, “Bring
‘em Over.”

After developing a following in his native town of Tampa, Florida, Louis – AKA Heartbreak Kidd – moved straight to LA his junior year of high school. Over the past year he’s been able to perform alongside artists such as Chief Keef, Famous Dex, HoodRich Pablo Juan and Trippie Redd. And his work with them, as well as his study of some of R&B’s greats, has helped him to develop a sound and style that is uniquely his own.

“I don’t label myself as a specific genre or musical style,” he said. “I just consider myself an artist who makes music to whatever beats I’m feeling at the time, when I hear them. If I want to go make a rock song, I’ll go make a rock song. If I want to make a summer R&B smash, I’ll make that. I don’t box myself into any category. I’m creative and have fun with it.”

His new single is one of those club songs that’s perfect for the summer. Much like the album that he created in response to the bet from his friends, the lyrics from this song dive into the relationships that are formed when friends are hanging out. The name of the song refers to that feeling when you’re out with some girls at a club or a party and you want to bring them back to your place because you don’t want the night to end. You want to keep the party going.

“It’s something everybody can relate to,” Heartbreak Kidd said. “Plus it’s a song that you can move to and that makes you catch a vibe. It’s catchy. It’s melodic and it gets stuck in your head. It’s got a wavy beat and it’s something that everybody can rock with.”

Since moving to LA, Heartbreak Kidd has started linking up with a series of producers, artists and engineers who are helping him craft his sound and style even more. Like many other artists who have taken similar journeys before him, Heartbreak Kidd is hoping to branch out into other forms of entertainment, as well. He loves fashion, for instance, and points to Lil Uzi Vert, Playboy Carti, A$SP Rocky and Ian Connor as fashion inspirations. More often than not, fans can find him repping Supreme, Bape, Section 8, or Off White in his outfits.

At the end of the day, both his fashion style and his music speak to one common theme from his life: Do what makes you happy in life.

“Live life for yourself and not others,” he said. “Believe in yourself even if nobody else does. Most importantly, speak positive things into existence, because the good energy will come back to you in a way you may or may not understand.”

Heartbreak Kidd writes all of his own songs and he wants his music to inspire others and make people feel something when they listen to it. Whether it’s relating to a breakup in his slow song “For Granted”, or getting them dancing along in the VIP sections to “Bring ‘ em Over”, he wants his music to invoke emotion.
