Bruce Wayne is a compilation of Fetty’s celebrated ad-libs and trapezoidal vocals. Speaking with Complex, Fetty explained the project’s cover art and why he released it on his birthday stating, “My grandparents mean the world to me. I know they aren’t here, but I know they would be really proud of the man that I’ve became and my music. I’ve put out so much music in this past year, so I wanted to make sure to dedicate this record to them, It’s 679 all the way. That’s my birthday 6/7/90, so dropping it on my birthday on makes sense. I am Bruce Wayne, I’ve done a lot for people. It’s not about bragging, but inspiring people to always give back. Squuuaaa!”

Sareem Poems & Ess Be’s “Eyedentity” is about embracing uniqueness and loving yourself
Sareem Poems & Ess Be drop another single from their forthcoming release Mind Over Matter on Illect Recordings.
Sareem shares, “Eyedentity, is a song about self reflection. It’s often the things that make us unique, that are the targets of teasing in our youth. Skin tone, facial features, height, freckles, hair etc. Many times this ridicule progresses into self hate. How many times have you looked in the mirror and thought, I hate ________… you fill in the blank.”
He continues, “My hope is for this song to be an encouragement to whomever hears it. Be bold in loving yourself just as you are. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. You are beautiful because the creator created you that way… not because someone tells you that you are, see for yourself.”

Video Premiere: Leo Spauls shares his ethereal video for “Heaven’s Deep Blue Sky”
Leo Spauls premieres his neon-hued, ethereal video for the single, “Heaven’s Deep Blue Sky”.
Directed by the Polish cinematographer, Łukasz Pytlik, “Heaven’s Deep Blue Sky” narrates a love story we can all relate to: losing the one who is most important.
Spauls states, “All of the things you’ve done together, everything you’ve built together, is gone. You are back from where you started, and there is no going back. But you don’t want to see it, you want to leave this Earth, fly away from it because the pain is too big. It’s actually a gay love song, but it’s the same if you are straight. This gay stuff is so old, it’s not about if you are gay anymore, it’s about the feelings we all share, no matter who you are.”
