J Manifest Shines On Anthony Hamilton’s ‘Love Is The New Black’

Published

J Manifest does it again.

The North Carolina superproducer with credits from Rick Ross, Lil Wayne and T-Pain, taps in with legendary Neo-Soul singer Anthony Hamilton for his highly-anticipated new album Love Is The Black. For the project, Manifest and Hamilton collaborate on album-cuts “Safe” and “Pillows.” The producer says the soulful collaboration was nostalgic.

“When giving the opportunity to produce for Anthony Hamilton I knew that it was gonna be special. ‘Sonically,’ I wanted to bring nostalgic sounds to connect with his soulful voice. The track ‘Pillows’ fell nothing short of the vision.”

He continues: “Wu-Tang is one of the greatest rap groups ever, I always thought it would be dope to sample a Wu-Tang record and turn into an R&B song. When presenting the track ‘Safe’ to Anthony Hamilton, he over exceedingly brought that idea to life.”

Hamilton’s new project features Rick Ross, Lil Jon, and Jennifer Hudson with production by Bink!, Jermaine Dupri, 9th Wonder, Cardiak. Along with “Pillows” and “Safe,” among the 14-track collection are notable mentions “Real Love,” “I’m Ready” and “Superstar.” The new album is available everywhere via My Music Box/BMG.

Corio (YNL Capone) Can’t Be Stopped In “Don’t Run” Video

Love takes an unexpecting turn for the uprising Kentucky rap star Corio, formerly YNL Capone, that sees his resiliently pursuing his distancing love interest in the cinematic new visual for “Don’t Run.” While the Brandon Lopez-directed visual tell one story, the lyrics tell another as Corio details the struggles of the relationship. We see him chase the love of his life physically and metaphorically through confession.

“Things I did in the dark came to light,” says Corio. “I had let my demons as well as life problems put us both in pain and I can tell she wants to run, but I can’t let her go because I love her. At this point my relationship is a wreck. The only way I could talk about it was to make it art. Maxx B started playing the guitar and the first take was the one I recorded to. The whole session took maybe an hour. Honesty and pain makes writing easy.”

The Lexington native releases “Don’t Run” after catching widespread attention with the previously released hit “Phone Off.” And with his recent boost in popularity, “Don’t Run” marks the perfect origin point for newfound fans of the rising star as he delivers his arguably best work yet. The end of the visual speaks volumes. “Don’t Run” and “Phone Off” are available across all streaming platforms via own imprint.

Take a look at “Don’t Run” below, and afterward, follow the new artist on social media for daily updates.

AWAL’s new sensation Tyler Loyal returns to his old ways on the new single titled “Back In Dat Mode.” The highly energetic track produced by Sonni showcases the Boston native’s superior skillset, rowdy nature, and promising star power that will make him one of the hottest new acts of the year. For Loyal, the track reflects on the lowest part of his life, yet continues to pursue his dream.

“I’ve been at my lowest, living off Cup Noodles and cold-cut sandwiches,” said Tyler about the song’s message. “I’ve also been in the presence of financial freedom. Both experiences brought me to the same conclusion, I need to get rich. I made a promise to myself at 8 years old that I would be the one in my family to break the barrier and every day I live on this earth I’m trying to get myself closer to that end goal. This song is for the hustlers. It’s what it feels like to be fed up with your current state, get up and get to the bag.”

“Back In Dat Mode” follows Loyal’s impressive 2022, including the release of a trio of new songs like “Far From Jamaica,” “Still Mine,” and “Fallin’ Off.” Loyal’s latest release prepares us for an expected forthcoming project, which will eagerly arrive in 2023. More as this story develops…

“Back In Dat Mode” is available everywhere on So Rebel/AWAL.
