MJ: You hit fans with something different and innovative with this new album “Medicine for the Soul”. You curated a captivating blend of R&B and Hip Hop. Talk about the album and the mindset behind creating it.

TySoul: Both Maine and myself already collaborated on multiple records before this album, and everything we made together came out great. So, we thought, why not make a full project together, and we did just that. Myself being a Chris Brown fan, I wanted to add a new school R&B flare to the album, while having Maine add his old-school influences along with his amazing lyricism.

Maine: being from New York, Hip-Hop and R&B go hand and hand. Like Nas and Lauryn, Meth and Mary, Father MC with Jodeci, and the list goes on and on. We just wanted to bring that feeling back.

MJ: You enlisted an elite selection of producers for the album, with an incredible ability to orchestrate soundscapes that heighten the raw emotion and impeccable lyricism. Talk about that, as well as how you two linked up.

TySoul: We originally linked up nearly a decade ago from a mutual contact, we never collaborated at the time, but we did a few shows together. Years later Maine called me to come into JL Studios to do a hook for Mercy Gang and after that, it was a wrap…

Maine: We worked with a handful of producers including Know- it beats and Da Leadgeon who helped us blend that Hip Hop and R&B with today’s twist. Plus, we both get busy with the pen!

MJ:  Was the goal of the album to expand your fan base by stepping out of the box? Was it to display your versatility as artists and your agility to steer in different lanes?

TySoul: I think both of us somewhat stepped out of our comfort zones for the better. I was able to experiment with a more commercial sound rather than the old-school R&B type influences that were prevalent in my first album “Two-Sided.” I feel that we both displayed our versatility but also stayed true to our artistry.

Maine: I feel as an MC I should be able to adapt to any genre while still being me.

MJ:  What single off the album do you anticipate taking off both on charts and with listeners/fans?

TySoul: I think that “Addicted” or “Don’t You” are two of our more heartfelt records. Both talk about relationship-based content but also have an upbeat flow and awesome production.

Maine: “Serenity” is going to make a statement because it deals with some crucial issues going on in the world now. “Addicted”, “Old Thing Back”, and “Move Ya Body” are extraordinarily strong records as well.

MJ: Take a minute to reflect and share anything else about “The Medicine for the Soul”

TySoul: This project personally helped me to experiment with rapping more. Maine pushed and encouraged me to spit a few bars, and I was able to rap a few good verses on this album. Even through this pandemic, we stayed motivated and in touch, which enabled us to finish this project strong and in time when we were able to return to the studio.

Maine: We want people and our fans to get that great feeling listening to our music. We’re just trying to put authentic Hip Hop and R&B back on the map.

Special thanks to Dan Rosler, Amanda Rogan, Lambo Lo, Suspect, Gus, and Paulie…#RIPHefty

THEY.
R&B’s meteoric duo release their long awaited sophomore album The Amanda Tape
Featuring special guests
Tinashe, Wale,
Three 6 Mafia’s Juicy J

Phenomenally gifted, critically-acclaimed, R&B electric duo, THEY. has returned after their hiatus, delivering their long-awaited sophomore album, The Amanda Tape, available globally via Avant Garden, in partnership with Island Records. The album that has been a digital fan-favorite includes features from Wale, Three 6 Mafia’s Juicy J and Tinashe. The LA duo of Dante and Drew Love have garnered over 350 million global streams to date and have returned to the scene more magnetic than ever, as Billboard beamed, “The R&B duo encapsulates theBlack Experience living in America.”. The lead single “On and On” captures this feeling:

“This song has dual meaning to it. On the surface it’s a song about a relationship, but when writing it, we were also speaking about our relationship with the world around us. Things have changed so much, so rapidly and we must believe there’s hope that things will change for the better.

From day one we’ve wanted to use our platform responsibly to shed light on issues that affect us. This song was an opportunity to keep the conversation going about police brutality and social injustices that have afflicted our community for years.” – THEY.

Heartbreak, happiness and life lessons gave birth to THEY. ‘s sophomore release of The Amanda Tape, that’s been receiving acclaim from COMPLEX, The Fader, NME, Clash, HNHH, INTERVIEW Magazine, FLAUNT Magazine, UPROXX, and many other outlets. Stand out tracks such as “Count Me In”, “Play Fight with Tinashe”, “All Mine”, “STCU with Juicy J” and streaming favorite, “Losing Focus with Wale”, have earned the guys over 22 million streams-to-date and excitement at what seems to be a moment for new music that’s been healing for many. This has spurred conversations that have transcended Dante and Drew’s coming of age album, an ode to R&B that dives into the various phases of relationships, break-ups, black love, vulnerability, black intimacy, accountability as black men with purpose. All of this alongside Drew Love’s vocal crooning and Dante’s cozy production, fans echo JEZEBEL’s sentiments saying, “ THEY. takes me back to a golden era of R&B when Craig David’s “Fill Me In” was hitting right and Usher was doing that footroll skate dance in videos”.

Even in a quarantine, THEY. has managed to beat isolation, creating an album that feels like it’s narrating the ups, the downs and the in-between of your life. Bringing their music to life to help fans get through isolation they’ve stunned with their live acoustic performances recently on their YouTube Acoustic Performance and their next level DIGITAL FADER FORT performance.

The moral of the story is, THEY. show no signs of slowing down. Even in a global pandemic, Drew Love and Dante are ready for their breakout year, as the R&B duo to watch for in 2020 and beyond.
