Gene Noble Addresses Police Brutality on New Song ‘Something’s Coming’

Something is definitely coming for R&B singer Gene Noble.

On his new anthemic tune “Something’s Coming,” Noble sings about the rising up of the new generation in the face of adversity.

“Don’t you feel it? Don’t you believe it?/Something’s coming now, can’t you feel it?,” he sings on the Ben Free and Sunny Norway-produced track.

Noble shared the inspiration for this track on his SoundCloud account:

I started working on this song after one of the senseless police killings of an unarmed black man. By the time the song was finished there were several more men who had also lost their lives in a similar fashion. “Something’s Coming” represents my thoughts about the whole thing. I believe that today’s youth are not going to be as easily divided as past generations. I believe that people right now are too awake to sit in silence. Every day I see that something’s coming; and that something, is change.

Noble has written for the likes of Rihanna, Chris Brown, and Faith Evans. He’s even seen some solo success last year thanks to his hit song “Only Love,” which features Pitbull and Shaggy.

“Something’s Coming” is the first single for his upcoming album, slated for release this fall.

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.”
