I-K-E – “Yo Soy Un Rey” (Video)

I-K-E stands for Inspiring Kings Everywhere. As a Mexican-American Hip Hop artist, I-K-E is used to being underestimated, and has worked tirelessly at his craft as both an MC and producer to exceed all expectations. He marries a variety of Hip Hop and musical influences, always emphasizing hard drums, soulful melodies, catchy hooks, and top-tier lyricism.

His new self-produced single “Yo Soy Un Rey” is the first single off his upcoming album. It’s a song of affirmation for Latinos and others who have faced oppression and discrimination in America, reminding them of their resilience and rich heritage. His verses touch on everything from ICE to educational inequities, and a third verse, complimented by a beat switch, explains some of the motivation behind creating this song and album.

E Bleu Rides The Late Show In New “3AM” Music Video

E Bleu is ascending to superstar status in 2021 after a huge surge last year. After solidifying himself with collaborations with Eric Bellinger, Kap G and 24HRS, he crafts his own popularity with breakout songs “Me Time,” “Sit Right” and “Action.” Now, he prepares for a full-length release with the drop of his new visual to the lead single “3AM.”

An easy ride, directed by Keanu Livigni, E Bleu stars, alongside a beautiful love interest, as a Bonnie and Clyde situation, the two ride through the city lights and embark on a seductive joyride. A known night owl, E Bleu credits the song’s influence to his insomnia. He explains:

“I’ve always been a night owl. The energy at night is just different to me. I remember being in an Uber on the way home just mentally recapping the night and feeling like it’s somehow a pattern I fall into every night. I got home and recorded it in like 15 min on my kitchen counter at 3AM.”

And with “3AM,” Bleu’s forthcoming effort is slated for a 2021 release. To up-to-date on everything E Bleu, follow the rising star on Instagram.

Take a look at E Bleu’s new visual for “3AM” below. “3AM” is available on 2EZ Recordings.

November Shares Messy New Video, “Antisocialite”

Toronto Trap & B recording artist November, also known as Novac4ne, is rising up the ranks after establishing himself with his widely successful debut single “Demons.” Now, he returns with a toxic new visual for his new single, titled, “Antisocialite.”

In the video, November suffers from a woman’s scorn as he lays in the trunk, tied up and gagged, with his love interest taking him to his final destination. Throughout the ride, the rising star reflects on his screws up and aspirations to repair the relationship. The single’s vibe is smooth, dark and electronic. The perfect origin point for any newfound fan of the northern.

A brief backstory on November, he had gone quiet for a couple of years due to personal reasons and eventually fell out of touch with the love for making music. During his hiatus, he started finding his way back to the music and started to slowly work on new music and links up with Toronto-based Artist/Producer Sha Hustle, and Sony Canada Artist Swaggerrite. He found his way back to the craft, and his love for making music/expressing himself. November has been constantly working on new music for his dedicated fans that have been patiently waiting.

“Antisocialite” will appear on November’s next project arriving 2021. “Antisocialite” is available now on 24K Music Group. Stream it here and follow November on social media.
