Singer-Songwriter 96 Delivers Captivating Performance of “Need 2 Know”

Published

96

Independent R&B artist 96 is bringing some nostalgia to your ears with the track release of his track “Need 2 Know.” The single is a sample of Fabo’s “Can’t Let You Go” and the release was accompanied by a live performance of the song on YouTube. The singer-songwriter showcases his vocal abilities while delivering a catchy verse over the familiar melody.

96, who’s based in Toronto, Canada has a few other projects under his belt. As the artist has continued to find his sound over the years, he’s managed to accumulate a supportive fan base and has garnered traction on Toronto. His musical journey began in 2016 and was ultimately inspired by having two of the biggest artists, Drake and The Weeknd, who put Toronto in the spotlight and open the doors for that next wave of upcoming artists.

“Seeing people where I was from do such great things motivated me to go twice as hard,” 96 said in a recent interview.

The new single has a 2000s vibe, which is reminiscent of 96’s other projects and sound. He credits the mix to DJ Chopp-A-Lot, who was responsible for flipping the sample on the beat.

As far as the response to the project, 96 says that “Need 2 Know” has been his biggest release to-date — since his fans have been able to get the song to over 10k streams. As a thank you gift, the independent artist shared the live performance of the song on YouTube.

Virginia is surging with Hip Hop’s next-generation superstars. Among the new class is the slick, catchy and popular recording artist, Fat Wallace. Today, he makes his run for the 2021 artist-to-watch label with new single “Dreams.” “This year will be the year all of my fans look back on as the year the rest of the world discovered Fat Wallace,” says the rising star.

For the new single, Wallace remains loyal to his roots as he amasses widespread notoriety with lyrics about evolving into a superstar through persistence, resilience and, most of all, originality. Fat Wallace has created an authentic sound since his original arrival in 2016. “From my perspective and releasing music for the past 5 years, I definitely feel like this is my best song to date because it shows exactly what my mission is,” he says.

He continues: “If a kid from a town that only has a population of a few thousand can put his time and effort into making it somewhere with his music, it really just shows that hard work really can get you anywhere regardless of where you’re starting from.”

“Dreams” is the lead-up to something big coming from Fat Wallace in 2021. And now a great origin point for newfound fans, feel free to stay updated on everything Fat Wallace via social media. Before the forthcoming album, stream “Dreams,” available now via Major League Records.

After establishing an impressive resume of collaborations with Chris Brown, Slim Thug, Rock City, and Lecrae, Houston’s Cam Wallace star power lands him a deal with Motown Records. And with a deal in play, growing popularity and huge anticipation, Wallace unveils his first impression with 6Rings EP. The six-song collection includes Wallace’s debut single “Retail,” which he just dropped a new visual for last week, shown below.

Available via Create Music, 6Rings is a remastered project for fans to explore the new star’s musical journey and prepare them for what comes next. Following “Retail,” the revitalized project features fan-favorites “The Rulez” and “Moon On The Floor.” Raised on the Northside of Houston, Cameron “Cam” Wallace is a seasoned songwriter, producer, and recording artist. Galvanized by the Lone Star State’s then fast-rising chopped and screwed scene, originated by the late DJ Screw, Wallace also credits his dad’s extensive vinyl collection in addition to Virginia heavyweights like Timabland, Pharrell, and Missy Elliott as early influences. Additional influences for the multi-facted creative include Kanye West, Ty Dolla $ign, and Ginuwine.

Upon the project release, Wallace served fans with a dessert in the release of the new visual off the effort to the track “All The Way.” “All the way is literally a self-directed pep talk. It’s as simple as me telling myself (and now the listeners) that no matter what you’re doing mentally or physically, go all the way in. Crush your goals. The moment when it feels like you’re about to quit, that’s when you crank it up even more,” says Wallace on the new track.

After the stream, watch the new video below. Wallace signed with Motown last week with the label releasing the following statement of his arrival:

“Cam is a once-in-a-lifetime talent that raps, sings, produces, engineers, mixes at a high quality,” said Vice President of A&R – Motown – Shawn Barron in a statement.

Stream 6Rings now, courtesy of Spotify and for more Cam Wallace, follow him on Instagram.
