JAYE B is a buzzing artist based in Indianapolis who is quickly gaining traction. Born Jeffery Berry, JAYE B started releasing music in January of 2013 via SoundCloud. According to an interview with the independent talent, many of his earliest recordings were done through his iPod touch. Since then, Berry has released three projects, countless singles and laid the groundwork for a buzzing Indianapolis scene. His most recent project is titled 4 U & is available to stream everywhere.

The melodic project contains many R&B vibes and portrays JAYE B as an artist who is capable of versatility. For him, it’s clear to see how music serves as a point of expression and vulnerability.

Make sure you stream 4 U below, and keep reading to hear what JAYE B has to say.

What are some projects you’ve done in the past that you are most proud of and why?

My past three projects were Summer Madness, Thorns, and Come Home During Odd Times (CHDOT). I don’t have a project in particular that I’m most proud of because I’m at a different point mentally and physically, so each one is special and unique in its way. However, I feel like by the end of my career CHDOT, would be the one that I am glad I said everything I did say on that project. For it to be my first album, just because of how vulnerable I was and how the songs are even relevant to today’s society despite it going on three years old.

What’s next for you? Are you working on any upcoming projects we should be on the lookout for? Include some dates if you have them.

My last releases have been impulsive, so I can’t exactly say the next project. I plan on releasing a deluxe version of Thorns, “Thorns & Petals” this spring/summer, along with numerous singles this year, I’m debating on dropping the LP that 4 U was made for or just starting over and see where the sound takes me from here, but A LOT is coming soon.

What message do you hope fans take away from your music?

Ultimately I hope they take away positivity from my music. I make it so it can appeal to any age, race, sex, or belief. God put me on this planet to use the gift he gave me to create, so I’m going to utilize that to its fullest potential. I aspire to inspire, and I am an artist.

Where can we follow you on social media?

You can follow me on Instagram @jayesuave or @jayehorus, my Twitter is @naptownazzy, Snapchat is @jayehorus, and I do have a JAYE B Facebook page.

Angie Rose – “Unstoppable” + “Not A Monster”

Published

By

Late January, Capitol CMG and VME released the new EP from the stunning Bronx recording star Angie Rose, properly-titled, Unstoppable. In support of the new release, the Puerto Rican singer-emcee drops two new visual presentations for project-cuts “Unstoppable (Do It Again)” and “Not A Monster.”

On “Unstoppable (Do It Again),” Rose displays her diverse personality — ranging from beautiful bombshell to laid-back homegirl to fashionable businesswoman — while she recites a groovy sing-a-long that infects newfound fans, immediately. “Not A Monster” showcases an intensely artistic lyricist that unveils a deeply introspective wordplay about her personal trials and tribulations. The song has topped Spotify’s Latin playlist and transformed Angie Rose into a spankin’ new artist-to-watch of 2021.

Her backstory, growing up in The Bronx, the birthplace of hip-hop, and around the influences by her Puerto Rican roots, Rose’s musical mindset has formed an armor to withstand a world and an industry that isn’t always welcoming to women holding a mic. Rose, a SXSW fave, has graced stages across the festival spectrum with her signature blend of humility and barrio flow, appearing on stages with Pardison Fontaine, Andy Mineo, Christon Gray, and Oswin Benjamin.

Rose’s Unstoppable is a 7-track effort led by “Not A Monster” and filled with bouncy beats, quick-witted lyricism, and her soulful trademark hooks lace the tracklist, featuring anthems such as “7 Gold Chains”, that can be taken to the party or on a transformational journey. The standout, “Angels,” demonstrates her divine belief in the protection she’s felt journeying through the insular storms of her life.

Rose’s foundation of the same title was recently honored by FEMA for its philanthropic efforts and youth outreach programs. This Spring, you can catch Angie Rose performing at the 25th Annual 100 Hispanic Women gala, spreading her inspiring message of unstoppable resilience.
