Jiaani Taps Rich Homie Quan For ‘Lost Faith’ Video

With his debut album (‘10,000 Hours’) amassing over a million streams from January 2019, and three new loose singles already under his belt since the fourth quarter of last year, JIAANI (pictured right in the above photo) keeps the momentum going with the Terrius Mykel-directed music video for his new Buckroll-produced single ‘Lost Faith’, featuring Rich Homie Quan.

Speaking of his track and video, Jiaani says: ” ‘Lost Faith’ was really a reminder to myself to stay focused, at the time everything around me was changing. I was making more money but I had toxic relationships that I had to shed, and it was basically my rebirth. At the time, Rich Homie Quan was going through similar things with the label situation and in his personal life, so once we chopped it up and built a friendship, it just flowed, and Terrius Mykel really captured my vision for it with the video. Life is an opportunity everyday. We all take losses, but work ethic and a strong mindset will build you.”

The North Carolina emcee started out under the guidance of rapper 9th Wonder and went on to collaborate with the likes of Freeway, Fred The Godson, and Gillie Da Kid.

EP Review: Watch The Ton3s – The Hamiltones

After appearing to be lying dormant for a few years, the recent explosion of that good old R&B, as we know it, has got REAL…and I mean SERIOUSLY real, with laid-back soulful summer vibes popping up from all directions.

Keeping that rich soulful R&B alive, are three powerhouses from North Carolina: J. Vito, Tony Lelo, and 2E – otherwise known as THE HAMILTONES.

Containing six tracks, their latest EP, ‘Watch The Ton3s’ primarily features 90’s-esque semi-chilled vibes well suited for the summer, with backing vocal arrangements occasionally adding a gospel edge. The trio each take turns and robustly deliver their classically rich soulful vocals on each and every pieces, adding that extra spice.

Since these guys first appeared on NEW LEASE MUSIC with single, ‘Pieces’, I’ve been keeping a very close eye on their next move…and I have to say that this EP has more than satisfy my curiosity – and if you’re seriously into your R&B, do not pass up on these three ton3s.
