Rising R&B star James Lefty is looking to better days ahead with his new single “Forward.” The Harlem raised singer has been busy building an organic fan base with his music for the past few years. In 2018, he released the single “Blinded.” Last year, the 24-year-old flew to London to work with writer Cordell and producer Jaee, which he says was an experience unlike any other. Was the risk worth it? Yes. James Lefty’s tone is heaven sent. Its soft, airy quality commands your attention. Although you can hear the influence of his favorite singer Brandy, he has a style all his own. The way he weaves his layered background vocals throughout the track feels ethereal. For example, hearing the way he sings the word “Forward” in the chorus feels like riding a cloud. Lyrically, “Forward” finds James seeing his expectations with a potential lover. After experiencing hurt in the past, James is clear that he needs someone who is able to provide “natural progressive love” and be a source of peace in his life. He revealed that his real relationship inspired the song. Without question “Forward” should be added to your playlist. Listen to “Forward” below.
Sibling R&B duo Chloe x Halle released the video for the title track of their latest album “Ungodly Hour” last night. The eye popping clip, directed by Alfred Marroquin, opens with the sisters dressed in head-to-toe blue vinyl outfits inside a dark, mysterious laboratory, posing and twitching to the song’s heartbeat rhythm as the lights flicker around them. The scene then turns to a shallow pool, with both singers laying in the water wearing nude-colored, bedazzled body suits in between flashes of them in spare expanse sporting silver gowns and Erykah Badu-like facial hardware. The whole thing feels like a glimpse of dystopian, fashion-forward future set to the song’s soothing flow and vocals. The siblings revealed that they have several exciting things coming from their individual Twitter accounts, which they launched last Thursday. The singers showed love to their 1 million Twitter followers before showing off their individual handles: @chloebailey and @hallebailey. Chloe asked her 226,000 followers what her new header should be while Halle promised to give fans a glimpse into her happy space where only positivity and love is allowed. Watch “Ungodly Hour” below.
