Throw The Crown by Brinson Brinson celebrated his iconic tenth studio album release today with the arrival of Throw The Crown. Godchaserz Entertainment's CEO has always provided a strong soundtrack for the Kingdom and CHH as a whole. Brinson's content steadily witnesses of God's love, judgment, compassion, and truths from his love letter found from the bible. Trap-heavy production infused with keys, strings, and bellowing 808's lays the foundation from track-to-track. Standouts from the project include the opener "Faith In the Sky" feat. Norman Michael and Steven Malcolm, "The Last Dragons" feat. ReadyWriter, Selah the Corner, and Big Fil, and "Give Me A Reason" feat. Adam Yung and Xay Hill. The project wraps up with one of Brinson's strongest lyrical outputs on "Is This the End." He takes a verbal synopsis of world events and culture while adding his own emotions and conviction. From start to finish the vibe remains upbeat, uplifting, and focused on God's promises and provisions over His people.
Phil J. - "RIDE A WAVE" Independent artist Phil J. hit the people with yet another strong summer anthem. Listeners are treated to the best of Phil J's unique flow and sound. He credits our Creator for freedom, love, and protection during our current uncertain times of society over creative wordplay. The production presents as simplistic with drums and electronic cords, yet it's infectious and pushes your body to move. Since mid-May, he's dropped four strong singles leading up to a busy push of continuous new music this fall and beyond. "Jungle Fever," "More Love," "Fed Up," and the current single breathe life into the industry and the creative mind behind the music. Phil J. provides hope behind the artform found in music.
Jet Trouble - "Let Us Pray"
It's refreshing to hear sounds of love, appreciation, and admiration for someone when our current society is amid crisis mode. King Dream Entertainment's Jet Trouble provides listeners with an ode to his significant other thanking God for the relationship while continuously praying for her. Overall, it's a catchy, lil' slapper which will have listeners clapping along by the end of the track. It's a welcomed, joyous vibe the world seems to be lacking lately.
