With Juneteenth officially becoming an national holiday on June 19th, and Derek Chauvin being sentenced to 22.5 years in prison for the murder of George Floyd, three rising artists by the name of Grace Covington, TWyse, & Holy Smokes joined forces to releases a woke new single and video titled “Powerful”. Linking up in Richmond, Virginia these three creatives are sparking change, unity and togetherness in a sonically and visually appeasing manner for the masses to tap into.

In order to make sure that the general public sees their vision behind “Powerful” single Grace, TWyse and Holy Smokes candidly created a video that depicts their passion and desire for uplifting the black community. Grace does an amazing job of holding her own with her lethal tongue, while the fellas entrap you in an array of memorable punchlines and bars.

You get a chance to see how the three interact on camera together visually and sonically. This video gives a better inside to how the three artists respect each other’s craft enough to not outshine each other to convey an “powerful” message. With the world still reeling from the Derek Chauvin verdict, material like this is timeless and needed now more than ever.

When asked about their feeling about the Chauvin verdict off of the heels of Juneteenth each artist gave me a candid response that you can find below:
TWyse: “22.5 years with a chance for freedom after serving 15 years. I know people that serviced that plus for non-violent offenses. No Justice No Peace; Know Justice Know Peace! “

Grace Covington: “Although initially I was happy to see to a cop finally being sentenced, 22.5 years is not enough. We have a long way to go.”

Holy Smoke: Holy Smokes quote “I believe the judge did his thing given all he had to work with was a second degree murder conviction, but my prayer is that the system keeps him there the full term as it has and does so many others for far lesser crimes than this.”

As they continue to be leaders in entertainment and activism, you can count on Grace Covington, TWyse, and Holy Smokes to be around for a very long time. Press play below to stream their new “Powerfulsingle and visual here.

Natalie Reign is a musician from Toronto, Canada, who is passionate about her profession and wants to use it to make a difference in people’s lives. Natalie Monchis is her real name, but she uses the stage name “Natalie Reign” to remind herself and others of the necessity of starting with the right mindset in order to succeed in life.

“I had been struggling for quite some time to find an artist name that represented me, my music, and the message I wanted to portray to my audience,” explains Natalie about how she landed with her pen name. “By fluke, the word Reign, which symbolizes royalty, power, and strength, came to me. The name is a reminder for myself and my listeners to believe in ourselves and to push through life to help us build confidence and resilience.”

Natalie is most known for her last hit, “Royal,” now she’s back with “Lose Your Mind,” her new single. The latter was created in collaboration with TVGUCCI, a renowned musical artist and OVO affiliate, and has begun to acquire traction on different music platforms. It’s an energetic tune that demonstrates Reign’s versatility as an artist by demonstrating her ability to create a variety of sounds.

Natalie Reign has always loved music and dancing since she was a child. Her Russian background simply added to her ability to sing and twirl wherever she went. The artist’s family recollections include a lot of singing because Russian-style celebrations always included live music and dancing. She also grew up listening to ABBA, Boney M, and other musical giants from the 1980s. “Overall, I feel my upbringing has impacted my view on life, my open-mindedness, pushed me to experiment with new sounds, and given me a tremendous respect for arts in general,” Natalie adds.

Natalie Reign did not begin her musical career until 2017. She began as an artist brand under her own name, but subsequently added the term “Reign,” which has proven to be a significant addition. Her music is mostly influenced by afro, rap, hip hop, and R&B. Despite having a fear of public speaking as a child, Natalie has learnt to embrace the spotlight and shine, as seen by her current single, “Lose Your Mind,” featuring TVGUCCI.

Natalie Reign tells how the collaboration occurred unexpectedly but has turned into an amazing gem of a track when discussing about her current hit. TVGUCCI happened to be the next in line to record while working on “Lose Your Mind” with her sound engineer at Abstract Studios. The music celebrity took the next spot, but surprised everyone by asking to perform Natalie’s song and even adding a full verse of his own. Natalie Reign remembers, “I was in utter astonishment and was shocked that he had loved the song so much that he wanted to jump on it.” “As a last thought, anticipate the unexpected.”

Natalie hopes to create more music that appeals to individuals from all walks of life. She presently works in the criminal justice system during the day and writes music on the side. On Instagram and Spotify, you can follow Natalie Reign and her music to keep up with her journey.
