New Music of 2017 p.ii
- The Human Condition – Jon Bellion
Jon Bellion has been on the music scene for longer than you were born. His first album release, The Human Condition, came onto the scene hot! Always remaining true to his roots, the opening track professes that ‘He Is the Same’. No matter how successful his album is or how famous he gets, Bellion reassures his fans that he will always be the same kid from the high school, with a jump shot that is still flame. The single, All Time Low, flew on the charts in 2016 and now 2017. With a beat pad and melodic lyrics, this track stands out as a producer who should not be challenged. With a mix of hip hop and Paul Simon, Bellion proves his prowess.
- Digital Druglord – Blackbear
Blackbear continues to surprise his fans (and the music industry) with reflective lyrics and unmatched music production. ‘moodz’ featuring 24hrs stands out among the rest. Blackbear has been featured on various projects throughout the years, such as Justin Bieber’s ‘Boyfriend’ and Mod Sun’s ‘You Are’. His vocal style and original melodies put him on top of the artists that aren’t signed to a record label but still continue to produce art. Check out his earlier album, ‘Cashmere’ which is one of our favorites of 2016.
Still unsigned but still hustling, the east coast rapper Rowlan is taking over the spotlight. One of our favorite tracks on his unreleased music is ‘Best I Can’, featuring a melodic chorus and transformative lyrics throughout. Recently featured on Gary Vaynerchuk’s highly successful Youtube vlogs, Rowlan’s music took over a montage of the videos. If you are in need of new music with a flare, Rowlan’s discography will provide great insight into the rapper’s life.
