Isaac B Returns With Single, ‘Love Yourz’, Off Upcoming EP ‘Chances Ocean’

Following his appearance on the blog with the video for single ‘SNE HNE’ – which bagged the Music Video of the Month title back in December –  transatlantic MC, ISAAC B returns with single, ‘Love Yourz’, a thoughtful and inspiring number which reflects on life’s struggles and growth in self-love and perseverance.

Isaac B says “I wrote ‘Love Yourz’ in a sunken place, without direction I battled myself, but found hope in my fellow artistic comrades and collective communities. The track title intends to pay homage to ourselves, “Love Yourz” – It’s a celebration for everyone, everywhere. This time here, is just the beginning of our journeys, while we manifest the fruits of our labour to come.”

Cutting his teeth in the Florida rap cypher scene, Isaac B developed a knack for his spontaneous freestyle wizardry, often venting frustration at humanities systematic behaviours. Influenced by Xxxtentacion, YBN Cordae and Kojey Radical, the dual-heritage artist moved to the UK in 2013 where he now fronts the biggest Underground Hip-Hop nights in South London with his collective And What? Ldn.

Unpretentious and poetic in its delivery, ‘Love Yourz’ sets the tone, with its lyrically charged hooks and melodic instrumentation, for his upcoming EP,‘Chances Ocean’, due for release this summer. Have a listen below…

Song of the Day: Same Again – Char

Following her critically acclaimed debut single ‘Control’, which was met with rave reviews from the likes of BBC Introducing, Lefuturewave, DiscoverNU, and Mercato Metropolitano Radio, Berkshire singer and songwriter CHAR‘s first offering of 2020 ‘Same Again’ is a mesmerising offering with warm R&B and lush pop sensibilities, led by CHAR’s smooth vocal and effortlessly soulful delivery, underpinned by a slow-building jazz-soul fusion minimalist musical backdrop, which allows CHAR to steal the show from start to finish.

The latest release sees CHAR looking introspectively at the cyclic repetitive behavior. She explains: “We often find ourselves trapped in, not considering the effects of doing the same thing again and again, and expecting a different result – whether it’s going back to that one person time and time again, or repeating the same night out over and over again. The track is a bit of hard nudge for me, but there’s also a self-soothing aspect to the track, where I’m saying ‘let’s not beat ourselves up too much’, because life is already tricky enough to navigate through as it is”.
