Gallant Shares New Single ‘Doesn’t Matter’

After wooing his fans with “Gentleman,” Gallant returns with another bop titled “Doesn’t Matter.”

Over a bouncy production, created by John Ryan and Julian Bunetta, Gallant sings about making the most of a relationship that’s on the rocks. “If this love’s an accident waiting to happen, let’s go out with a bang,” he sings.

The DMV native also released an accompanying visual for “Doesn’t Matter,” which was directed by Sasha Samsonova. The expressive video is packed with symbolism from the use of colors to animals.

Gallant is expected to release his untitled sophomore album this year on Mind of A Genius/Warner Bros. Records. This fall, he will launch his Too Good To Be Tour with special guests Cautious Clay and Jamila Woods. The three artists will travel across North America, making stops in Atlanta, Philadelphia, Toronto, Chicago and Los Angeles. Tickets go on sale Friday, May 11 at 10 a.m. local time.

Listen to Sabrina Claudio’s New Project ‘No Rain, No Flowers’

Sabrina Claudio has released her new project titled No Rain, No Flowers. The body of work, co-created with Sad Money, features eight tracks including “Numb” and “Messages from Her.

Speaking on the No Rain, No Flowers, Claudio says, “I wrote this in a time where my vulnerability was at an all time high & I’ve never felt more free spilling my heart out on paper.”

With the help of few incredible musicians and producers, Claudio adds she and Sad Money completed No Rain, No Flowers in a month and a half. Interestingly, the project doesn’t include her previously released tracks “All to You,” or “Don’t Let Me Down” featuring Khalid.

No Rain, No Flowers arrives nearly a year after her project, About Time.

Tone Stith Teams with Ty Dolla $ign for New Song ‘Take It There’

Tone Stith is back with an all-new installment of Tone Tuesdays. He teams up with Ty Dolla $ign for his latest track “Take It There.”

On the tender track, the rising singer stretches his warm falsetto as he cheers his special lady to “take it all off” for him.

Ty rallies for his girl to be a savage in the bedroom. He doesn’t even mind if her backside is real as long as she gives him all-night pleasure.

Stith is no stranger to releasing gems. The singer has brought the heat on songs like “Sex Drive,” “Long Run” and “A Little Bit of Lovin’.” But we’re ready for Stith to drop an official lead single from his debut album.

As far as Ty, he and Jeremih are aiming to release their joint project MihTy this Friday (August 17). Ty is also working on a joint effort with Teyana Taylor.

Ro James Releases New Single ‘Excuse Me’

Somebody’s got Ro James fucked up on his new song, “Excuse Me.” Co-produced by Tricky Stewart and Jean-Pierre Medor, the mellow tune finds James reflecting a relationship where he was giving more than he was receiving.

“You had it easy but you just couldn’t play your part / Our heart was starving while you focused on so many parts / Out of the line, it’s way too old to be acting up,” he sings.

“Excuse Me” is the first single from James’ upcoming sophomore album that will release in November via ByStorm Entertainment/RCA Records. “Feels good to be back,” James wrote on Instagram. “This process has been different, a growing process for sure. [I] had to take some time for my mental.”

In a recent interview with Rated R&B, James compared the approach of his second album to his debut album, Eldorado. “Eldorado was my first time going to the label saying, ‘I don’t want to do this, this is who I am’ and accepting their advice too, so we can create something timeless,” he said. “My next album is the same process — growing with people who now are a part of your trajectory, your growth and who you are. I had a concept from the jump but the thing is finding the sound that matches the concept. It was definitely harder but I enjoyed the process.”
