New Track: Giovanni James – “Shining”

 

Harlem based singer Giovanni James (previously known as Jelly Jells) has just released a new single to go with his new moniker.

When you listen to “Shining,” think a cross between Van Hunt and old Nelly Furtado – that’s right around where we’d place it – and whatever that is, is pretty freaking catchy.

The track is part of the upcoming Ponyboy’s Gold EP.

New Track: K’Naan – “Nothing To Lose” ft. Nas

 

On January 24th K’Naan will be releasing his More Beautiful Than Silence. Look out for appearances from Nelly Furtado and Nas as well as production by Ryan Tedder and Chuck Harmony. Above, find the first single from the project, “Nothing to Lose” featuring Nas.

K’Naan speaks on his upcoming EP:

I spent the last year living my life, observing other lives, changing, evolving, then breaking down to the basics. I’ve been good and ugly, sometimes couldn’t tell which was which. I felt the oldest pain in the world for the first time, and found myself lost. All the while, through all the changes the only thing which remained consistent was being in the studio. I sometimes took a matter seriously, and when I realized that the matter was me, I laughed hysterically. I wrote about 60 songs or so. Some of them will probably never be heard by ears other than mine, but some I am now ready to share.
