Welcome back to another edition of Saturday Spotlight. Each week we review submissions from all over the globe, picking the best out of the batch to highlight at the end of the week. This week we received submissions from China, Haiti, Ireland and Austria among others. If you’re an aspiring rapper, a producer wanting to create a buzz, or a singer looking to expose their talent, Saturday Spotlight is dedicated to discovering the next star.
Whether it’s your latest single or a new beat you made, all upcoming artists can submit music to us for Saturday Spotlight on this link.
Rashida Briana understands the crooks and crannies of love. On her new single, “Baby You,” she’s on cloud nine and she wants to voice it in the highest planes. She’s passionate and raw. Her vocals are fierce enough to pierce hearts. In a slow-tempo groove, Rashida harmonizes in perfect sync with the slow claps. The Chicago-born singer’s love letter is a poignant and heartfelt debut. Check out the track below:
Trebouncee’s raps are meant to throw you off balance. He’s sharp, but his punchlines are delivered like blunt force to the skull. He’s lethal on the mic. His latest single, “Senzu Bean,” is a nod to Dragonball Z’s healing bean. Over a grizzly trap beat, Trebouncee sports a rapid-fire delivery that’s gleaming with confidence and technical mastery.
