SFPL’s Artist Spotlight: Cherri V – “Without You” [New Music]

[ione_embed src=https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/tracks/316292300&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false&visual=true service=soundcloud.com width=100 height=450 type=iframe]

Singer/Songwriter Cherri V is back with her new single ‘Without You’ which is produced by Grammy award winning producer Harmony (Jennifer Hudson, Maroon 5 and Ariana Grande). Cherri is a storyteller and in this song she takes us through comedic life moments that most people can relate to, for sure.

The past 18 months have been very busy, Cherri V was featured on Lethal B’s top 20 hit “The Drop,” toured the world with several artists, and recently joined Teedra Moses on her European Paris date, and is currently putting the finishing touches on her long awaited debut album Brown Eyed Soul. This album is her most personal and autobiographical project to date, which is why she wants to present the whole story as a complete album rather than an EP.

The beat is a beautiful soulful number that embraces the voice of Cherri, who releases her full repertoire of vocals on the official single to deliver a mind blowing performance.

Check out the official song above.

SFPL’s Artist Spotlight: Eli Wesse – “Small Talk” [New Music]

[ione_embed src=https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/tracks/317114310&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false&visual=true service=soundcloud.com width=100 height=450 type=iframe]

When you’re dedicated to pursuing your dreams, sacrifice is necessary. Eli Wesse, a young producer/vocalist from Ann Arbor, Michigan, understands this all too well. With two immigrant parents from the Congo, Eli took the road less-traveled by his family and peers and left home as a young teen to live on his own on the East Coast to pursue music. He eventually moved back home to Michigan to regroup and hone his craft, sacrificing a love interest at the time. Eli captures the resulting sentiments over a slowed, emotive trap beat on his brand new single “Small Talk,” self and co-produced by Arjun Singh (producer for The Voice runner-up Michelle Chamuel’s The Drift EP, which reached #2 on the iTunes Electronic Music chart).

“There was a girl from New York City I dated. I left her and Manhattan to come back to Michigan to get my music off the ground. I never got as deep with her as I wanted. And I guess a lot of things tend to get lost in translation when you live far away. A lot of people (not just her) didn’t really believe how serious I was about music. And a lot of this record is just me clearing the air on a lot of doubt I sensed around me. I wanted people to realize all the sacrifices I made and I wanted her to look up and see… ‘look we’re really doing this.'” – Eli Wesse

SFPL’s Artist Spotlight: Hass Debuts First EP ‘Cold Days In The East’

Young R&B/Pop crooner HASS releases his new highly anticipated 7-song EP titled Cold Days In The East which premiered on The Source.

The project displays the many talents of the young artist paired with emotion meets raw and sexy.

HASS says:

“Love has taken me in so many directions on the east side, and I’ve grown so cold but even with these ‘Cold Days in The East,’ I’m still ready to love.”

With HASS already being compared to the likes of Chris Brown, August Alsina and more, his body of music work is also packed with lustful records like “Scream” which may just have you contemplating about making babies. While other darker records like “Other Side” will have you reevaluating your current relationship. HASS also paints a story of love and love lost. With the project giving you a deep, dark feel you’ll truly know what “Cold Days In The East” feels like.

Born and raised in Newark, N.J., there aren’t many artists/singers coming from the city with a broad and flexible sound HASS is bringing to the table. “COLD DAYS IN THE EAST” is guaranteed to set the tempo for the year setting HASS in the place to the next up and coming talent to look out for.

Without releasing any singles, HASS decided to release the full EP organically.

Take a listen to the full album above.
