Completely by herself and waiting for someone or something to materialize, Amber Ryann, with red and blue polka dot balloons as her only party guests, lights one up and goes within herself for “Bye Now”
She takes us through the mental hurdles of being committed to someone on an emotional front but being pushed to the wayside whenever emotion or reliability comes center stage, all through a grainy, lo-fi lens.
Ryann’s storytelling is unique; she’s upfront about what she wants and is not keen on being played. Leaving the room and venturing out into the world with a single, black balloon in toe, her declaration of “bye now” begins to take two meanings: it’s both a goodbye to an inadequate relationship as well as warning that that signs were there all along; that, by now, they should’ve known this was coming.
“The entendre behind “Bye Now” was predominantly accidental but somehow played into the scenario of the song. I feel as though some if not most of us come to a point in adulthood where we realize if we aren’t accepted for all of whom we are in a romantic relationship over time, it most likely is not worth the compromise. The song conceptualizes the reality of relationships and the ultimatums associated with some one with that mentality. I’m basically saying you can’t only love me for my good side, you can’t only love our physical chemistry. Bickering naturally happens, but sometimes it’s like you just end up picking at each others personalities, finding all the weak spots and making up new reasons to fuel the anger along the way. There are things that make us imperfect characteristically, but you can’t use that as a weapon. You should of know these things about some one you commit your time to.
“Warning” is the first release from Danya Black’s forthcoming “Bird Of Prey” EP. It is a mid tempo, 808 heavy, trap style R&B song about love at first sight. The track was produced by Toani The Maven and the accompanying visual comes to us from So Cinematic
Danya Black is a versatile vocalist, songwriter and producer hailing out of South London, UK. Coming from a Caribbean background she grew up in a household with as much a varied musical taste as the flavours in the food she says. Although having developed a varied palette in music, the one common thread that always held ground for me was message and meaning.
“My mom always emphasised the importance of good lyrics” she says, “As I started to venture out into my own musical explorations I must say it has always been a necessary ingredient for me, BARS!“. “That’s not to say I don’t appreciate something ratchet to turn up to ..as we have a couple of those songs in the ‘stash’ too, it’s just that music is more than just a soundtrack to our lives it’s also the almighty curator that pokes at our consciousness and effects our mood and in turn our actual behaviour. Anyway, enough about that! My music, as well as having a message, issa vibe!”
In “My Tata” from Mike11 and Jeremih, Tata represents the perfect woman that all men seek, a woman who stands by her man through the good and the bad
Influenced by hip-hop, R&B, and pop music, “My Tata” also appeals to Latin and European audiences as well. Mike11 lends his enthralling Portuguese guitar to the track, as well as lyrics in Spanish like “Amor” and the mix of “Yo Quiero” “Just you,” which means “I want just you (Tata)”. The sultry music video captures Mike in the midst of a seemingly forbidden relationship as his conversation with a beautiful woman is shrewdly interrupted by two uninvited party guests. Watch the official video here.

Afta Hill, formerly known as Safakash, evolves with bold intentions with the release of his debut EP “Ace” alongside a music video for “336 Love N Other”
“I spent the last three years exploring music and myself”, Hill exclaims. “With each project, I attempted to describe my part in this human experience, but mainly focused on technical abilities”. After four years under what he calls his “pupil moniker”, Hill pleads that the decision to become Afta Hill comes from the growth and experiences music has given him so far. “The name comes from my hometown of Richmond Hill, Ontario – just outside of Toronto,” Hill clarifies. “In a conversation, my friend said: ‘I’m excited to see where you go after the Hill.’ Right away, we looked at each other and stopped – that was it”.
The raw R&B sound, accompanied with hard hitting bass traps the listener in entrancing melodies and unapologetic lyrics. Hill’s staple of dynamic flow and cunning lyricism develops into a well constructed sound that is displayed on “Ace.”
Director Liam Higgins’ second video for the Richmond Hill artist encapsulates the struggle of maintaining a long distance relationship, filled with both combating hedonistic desires and all the motions of a fading romance. Afta Hill showcases both his daunting ego, and his true vulnerability as he becomes disengaged throughout the course of the story. “This whole project, like the theme, is really coming-of-age,” Higgins says. “This video was about showcasing that cold truth you receive when becoming disconnected from those you trust – even when sometimes it’s yourself.”
For Hill, music is his therapy, and “Ace” signifies his willingness to dive into the topics music helped him overcome.
