Cover or original, musicians are just trying to get their name on the map. In a saturated space, how does one stand out from the crowd is the question on everyone’s minds. The majority of the music the media circulates is watered down content, with the exceptions of Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, and Beyoncé – we all saw Formation and instantly fell in love with, or was that just me? I appreciate storytellers, with interesting visuals rather than the generic videos of objectified women and predictable lyrics. There are various topics an artist can cover in their lyrics, unique art direction that makes their visuals spectacular. But it seems everyone wants to get into the spotlight fairly quickly. Someone once said they’d rather be a Carey than a Cardi in the perspective of hustling to their position. Don’t limit art by following the crowd, support those who genuinely interest you. You won’t be alone, instead, you’ll find a tribe of like-minded individuals.
Everyone knows The Weeknd (obviously), well this music Monday I thought I’d introduce you all to someone just as amazing, round of applause for Devvon Terrell, The Living Weirdo. I discovered him through the artist VI Seconds and his latest mixtape entitled DemiGod, as Devvon was featuring on the chorus of Wonder Woman bringing emotion through his vocals for a profound song, about women. Can’t Feel My Face is a popular song, and Devvon Terrell did justice to the hooks, he added his own touch to the instrumental, smoothly switching flows between powerful vocals and fast rapping. He embodies happiness, humour, and positivity – the video definitely showcases his entertaining personality. He has also teamed up with Futuristic and released a joint album called Coast 2 Coast. If you enjoy 90s hip-hop instrumentals, great lyrical content and Devvon Terrell, head on over to Soundcloud now.

Until next time, stay blessed and classy,
