DJ Premier and Miguel Release ‘2 Lovin U’

miguel-2-lovin-u

DJ Premier and Miguel team up for a song called “2 Lovin U.” The song isn’t new, though. In 2014, Miguel shared a snippet of the track on his Instagram while he was working on his third album, Wildheart. However, the song didn’t make the album because it wasn’t a good fit with the rest of the album.

“It’s never about one song,” Miguel said. “Every piece of the puzzle supports the picture, so if one of the pieces doesn’t fit and doesn’t capture the emotion and sonic representation I’m hearing, unfortunately I just have to save it for something else.”

DJ Premier said in a press release, “The snippet you heard on Miguel’s Instagram, mine is the original. Miguel and I were vibing at a session and just really seeing what we could come up with. What we came up with was a dope, but rough version of what you hear today. Miguel and I had deadlines and we never got around to finishing it. We both really believed in this version of the track and we both felt very strongly that it needed to come out and be released as a single. Miguel and I approached the label about releasing it and everyone was on-board.”

“2 Lovin U” is the first release off DJ Premier’s new record label TTT (To The Top).

Listen to Grace Carter’s New Single ‘Ashes’

Emerging singer Grace Carter has released her new single called “Ashes.” The song finds Carter singing about the troubles of getting over a past relationship.

“Fighting for my survival / I can’t lay this love to rest / It’s the night when I think of you most,” she sings on the Mike Dean-produced cut.

“It’s a song about the frustration and need to get over someone but not quite having the strength to do so yet,” Carter tells Rated R&B. “Working with someone like Mike Dean who has worked on some of my favourite records was an honor.”

Earlier this year, Carter released her debut single “Silence.” The song made a lot of noise on digital platforms and has garnered over 9 million streams. It was also featured on ABC’s hit series, Grey’s Anatomy. 

Carter is putting finishing touches to her debut EP that is slated to release in spring 2018.

Stream Guordan Banks’ Debut Album ‘Unpopular’

Guordan Banks has been grinding for years as a singer and a songwriter. After scoring a hit with “Keep You in Mind,” the Philadelphia native has finally released his highly-awaited debut album, Unpopular. Led by the single “I Wanna Be Yours,” which has over 1.3 million stream on Spotify, the album includes guest appearances from Sonya Elise and Tdot illdude.

In a past interview with Rated R&B, Banks shared the inspiration behind Unpopular. “It’s pretty much how, for me, I stuck to who I was. I never tried to conform or fit in or be anyone else. I just stayed true to myself and my sound,” he said. “A lot of the same people who love my music now kind of didn’t understand it then. But it’s OK because that’s how things happen. I just want to send a signal that stay true to yourself, believe in who you are, make the mirror your best friend…that’s how you really get to identify with true love within yourself. One day people will see it and you will inspire someone else to be themselves. I think that’s a short story of why I named it Unpopular.”
