Artist Spotlight: Rosewood Bape



Since the release of debut visual back in May, Rosewood Bape‘s “Taxi” has taken New England by storm; taking over every cookout, locker room, snapchat possible.

What I truly appreciate about his grind is that he made sure to make a name for himself locally before taking his talents elsewhere. Without relying on a cosign from a blog or a DJ, Bape made a name for himself organically – performing at numerous shows and cookouts. Not to mention his effective usage of social media through memes, hashtags, and emojis.

Now, everyone knows his name.

Here we are seven months later and the single continues to kill the club scene. Model/Video Vixen Ana Montana was seen vibing to the record recently while hosting NAGA.

Popular Atlanta producer Metro Boomin‘ was also seen dabbin’ to the record effortlessly during a meet and greet held at consignment store, Laced, back in October:

As long as Rosewood Bape continues to use the formula he’s been using with the team he has, I have faith this record will reach national success over the next year.

Be sure to check out his soundcloud with other hits like “Miles” & “Ready, Set, Go” here

Meet FLO — a fresh trifecta of young women who are making girl groups hot again! Hailing from London, these three ladies — Renée, Stella and Jorja — are set out on creating their own wave of R&B and pop hits. 

They recently released their first single ‘Cardboard Box.’ FLO’s cooked up the perfect up-beat track that screams “broken up but moving on.” 

“So I’ma put your sh-t in a cardboard box
Changing my number and I’m changing the locks
When you can’t get in, know your heart gon’ stop
You may be crying, but boy, I’m not”

As of now, ‘Cardboard Box’ is sitting with millions of streams across all streaming platforms. Also, with just a debut single, they’ve already gotten cosigns from SZA and Jojo! The heights that they are bound to reach are highly anticipated. 

Their music video truly reels in all of the late 90s/early 2000s R&B essence. Expect blinged-out Motorola cell phones, beaded braids, and sexy-cool choreo. 

“So I’ma put your jeans next to the dreams that you sold me
Believe karma is a B and she gon’ teach
Said I’ma put your gold chains down the drain and your Rolly
Might just drop a text to your homie”

It’s gotta be that ‘to the left, to the left” energy! Don’t forget to stream and keep an eye out for FLO’s next move!

If you’re hip, her last name should ring a bell as she is respectively the daughter of Ernie Isley from the Isley Brothers. Clearly, great musicianship didn’t skip a generation! 

Isley and Dine have already proven to be an untouchable music duo, considering their previous projects including ‘Good & Plenty’ featuring MasegoGone,’ and ‘Mine.’ 

Isley took to Twitter to explain the makings of her album. After dedicating years toward this project, Isley can assure you that there will be something for everyone to enjoy. 

Alexandra on Twitter: “.@jackdine & I have been working on this album for a couple years (took longer cuz pandemic), Marigold is so special to us both. So happy and excited to FINALLY share this music ❤️ / Twitter”

In ‘Marigold,’ Isley sings of love and pain from finding unexpected love to struggling to attempt to maintain inner peace while dealing with heartbreak. For instance, if you’d like to stargaze while you’re falling in love, listen to ‘Under The Moon’ where she sings about the alluring feelings of embarking on a greater connection with someone. 

‘How are things meant to be? It’s written in the stars
Easy to navigate, not wandering high
‘Til the moment when it’s sanctified
Save a getaway for you and I
No, it don’t matter how, just take me really far’

However, if you find yourself thinking about a failed love, Isley’s got you covered with ’Square Zero,’ ‘Without,’ or ‘Still Wonder!’ 

Stream below to indulge in 30 minutes of the hypnotically lush and cool sounds of Alex Isley!

Rising Star Radar: Meet Fresh New R&B Singer Ogi!




Meet Ogi, Los Angeles-based Nigerian-American singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist! She presents a rich R&B sound that many R&B heads are searching for these days.

She recently released a new single called ‘Envy’ which is about cutting through people’s facades and realizing that she was dealing with envious people all along. The single was produced by Grammy award-winning producer No-I.D.

“Did you know that it’s a sin to covet?
Baby, I can’t help the fact you love it
No skin off my back
Wish that I could help resolve the pain
That you’ve been holding on to but it’s
So helpless if I’m the cause”

According to Broadway World, Ogi explains that she likes to think of ‘Envy’ as a ‘personal love letter to haters in my life.’ ‘Envy’ is 4 minutes of rejecting accountability of other people’s jealousy. ‘I’m basically telling them that it’s not my fault that you want what I have, don’t be mad at me. I can be a little petty at times and this song gives a glimpse of me.’

Ogi is currently scheduled to open for R&B singer Snoh Aalegra for her ‘Ugh, These Temporary Highs’ Tour at Radio City Music Hall in the Big Apple. Be sure to check out her debut single ‘I Got It!’
