Kevin Ross continues to build momentum for his upcoming debut album, The Awakening, available March 24. The D.C. native has shared a visual for his latest single “Pick You Up.” The black-and-white visual finds Ross alone in a room as he gives himself a pep talk to get through hard times.

“‘Pick You Up’ is a narrative based off of a certain time in my life where I felt alone,” Ross told Vibe. “Like there was no way out of my circumstances. But it was like God gave me this song not only to encourage myself but to encourage others to stay strong and steadfast. We all are pieces of thread woven into the fabric of life. Which means we need each other in more ways than what we realize.”

In a recent interview with Rated R&B, Ross explained the meaning behind The Awakening. “It’s me waking up as a man,” he said. “Me waking up as an artist and understanding that my platform means something. I’m held accountable for the things that I say and the things that I think. You never know who’s listening. I think for me it was waking up for that. It was waking up for the God-given responsibilities that I have to the business, to the field of entertainment and to the world — in that I’m necessary, God told me I’m necessary and everybody else is necessary because we’re all made one of one. I just want to spread that message so that everybody can reach their full potential. The world could be a better place because of that.”

Blvck Rose Releases Visual for ‘Video Girl’ Featuring FùNSHO

Emerging producer Blvck Rose has released the visual for his debut single “Video Girl” featuring FùNSHO.

Directed by Bria Domonique, the kaleidoscopic-clip takes a glimpse into the lives of various women with different interests including yoga, painting, photography and 420. The ladies later join Blvck Rose and FùNSHO at a kickback where he finds himself with more than enough options.

Blvck Rose shared the creative direction for the “Video Girl” visual. “I wanted to perfectly illustrate the feel of the song, which is very groovy, vibey and fun and highlight the variety of beautiful women of the DC-Maryland-Virginia area,” he said. “The vibrant shots showcase each woman in her natural element enjoying the song, and I hope the viewers leave with the message that all women are beautiful in their own way and should be appreciated.”

“Video Girl” will make the track list for Blvck Rose’s forthcoming EP A Half Dozen Roses, which is slated to arrive this summer. The project is expected to tell “an international love story told over futuristic melodic production.”

The Weeknd Releases Surreal Visual for ‘Call Out My Name’

The Weeknd captures his dark emotions in the video for “Call Out My Name,” which is lifted from his new project, My Dear Melancholy.

Directed by Grant Singer, the eerie clip opens with The Weeknd walking alone on an empty street. The video takes a strange turn after one-minute of playing. When he belts the chorus, bats fly out of his mouth. The video continues to get creepy as The Weeknd finds himself in an abandoned theater and in the middle of the wilderness.

My Dear Melancholy debuted at No. 1 this week on the Billboard 200, making it his third consecutive number one album. The project follows 2016’s Starboy and 2015’s Beauty Behind the Madness.

Fans will be calling out The Weeknd’s name today at Coachella, where he is set to perform. His festival run this summer also includes Panorama in July and Lollapalooza in August.
