Gladius James Recruits Wiz Khalifa For New Single ‘Rich’

Emerging artist Gladius James has released his new single “Rich” featuring rapper Wiz Khalifa. On the track, James sings about how is lover makes him feel rich. “When I’m with you, I’m rich / Don’t need no money, I’m rich / All I need is your loving, your kiss / ‘Cause when I’m with you, I’m rich,” he sings.

Speaking on his new track, James said, “It’s been almost two years since I wrote ‘Rich’ and at the time I didn’t write it for anyone specific. I honestly can’t explain where it came from. But as I’ve grown and I’m becoming a more refined individual, there’s part of me that believes I wrote it for myself. I’m speaking to my heart, I’m speaking to my feminine side, and I’m finding my inner value in the midst of feeling hopeless about myself.”

Khalifa added, “Making the song and video with Gladius was super tight cause the song is so fire.”

“Rich” is the follow-up to James’ previously released tracks “Too Bad” and “We All Got Issues.” All three songs will appear on his forthcoming project, Revelation, which is set to release this year on Island Records.

Bryson Tiller and Tory Lanez Share New Song ‘Keep in Touch’

Tory Lanez and Bryson Tiller “Keep in Touch” with their distant lovers on their new collaboration. Tiller kicks off the retrospective track with a sweet ode to an old honey.

“You always got me on standby, when you know I need love,” Tiller coos. “I’m missing when we was us, Miss when I wasn’t famous / That’s when we could be us.”

Lanez picks up the phone and expresses his feelings to his old flame, singing, “I’m in first class, thinking about how you would get me right /Damn near made me miss the flight.”

“Keep in Touch” is set to appear on Lanez’ upcoming album, Love Me Now? The new project follows Memories Don’t Lie, which was released in March.

“I honestly can say that I’m more excited about this project than any of my previous ones,” commented Lanez on Love Me Now? “I feel like I’ve over-analyzed how musical and lyrical and balanced my albums had to be, therefore making the process take longer. This time around I’m just in a great space creatively and I don’t care about the opinions of anybody but my fans and real supporters.”

Tiller is working on Serenity, his follow-up to 2017’s True to Self. He is featured on H.E.R.’s new project, I Used to Know Her.

Leon Thomas celebrates the power of women on his new single “PLW.” Short for “pretty little weapon,” the sharp guitar solo hears Thomas praising the sophisticated swag of his special lady.

“PLW” is the third offering from Thomas’ forthcoming EP, Genesis, due this Friday (Aug. 24) on Priority Records. The 7-track project will include his Buddy-assisted single “Favorite” and “Sunken Place.” Elle Varner has lent her jazz cadence to a track titled “Beg.”

Mentored by music legend Babyface, Thomas is also one-half of the production/songwriting duo, The Rascals. They have worked with a variety of stars including Toni Braxton, Ariana Grande and Ty Dolla $ign, among others.
