earl-st-clair-ep

Buzzing singer-songwriter Earl St. Clair makes his official introduction with his debut EP My Name is Earl. Released on Def Jam Recordings, the EP features seven soulful tracks and includes a guest appearance from rising singer and Rated Next Artist PJ.

Clair opens the EP with a blues-influenced song called “Pain,” where he sings about losing his parents. “Its getting kind of bad / This heart I got I wish I didn’t have / I’d give anything to get my momma back / When she left my whole world was cut in half,” sings Clair. He continues,  “My daddy died before I turned 25 / But he left me a little money / I’d much rather have my daddy alive / Ohhh, why did God take him from me.”

He continues to sing about loss on “Three Story Home,” where he reflects on a past relationship. “I realize that you’re all that I need / Without you by my side then I can’t sleep / These nights don’t get easy when you’re gone / They get harder,” he sings.

Clair tries to fill the void in his heart on “Criminal” and “Bad Love.” The latter track has a nostalgic funk/R&B vibe that’s reminiscent of the late Rick James.

The EP ends with the guitar-driven track, “Beautiful War.” With all that he’s been through in his life, Clair believes it has only made him stronger. “War is never pretty but the outcome could be gorgeous,” he states.

Stream Victoria Monet’s New EP ‘Life After Love, Pt. 1’

Singer-songwriter Victoria Monet turns her heartbreak into music on her latest EP, Life After Love, Pt. 1. On the nine-track project, Monet shares her feelings from a past relationship. With song titles like “Wish I Never Met You” and “No Good,” Monet definitely didn’t hold back on being transparent with her fans.

“This project is the direct result of an unfortunate breakup I had with someone that I loved very much,” Monet told Teen Vogue. “We were together for six years. He was someone I worked with, lived with, and even shared a birthday with. I thought we were soulmates and that I couldn’t live without him, but this project says otherwise.”

She continued, “Part 1 tells the story of the emotions I went through in order: the regret, insecurity, falling back in love, self-pleasure, crying, and coming to my senses. It’s very personal and anyone who has ever gone through a breakup can relate to at least one of these songs. I want to be clear though, that I didn’t want to release this project until I was sure that we both healed from it. As songwriters and artists we get a lot of attention and gratification when we write about the moments that have hurt us, and in turn, sometimes we’ll seek out more hurt so we can write more things that people like. I chose not to let this project do that. Out of respect, my ex and I have talked about the fact that I’m talking about the breakup publicly and have an understanding for the creative healing process.”
