A soulful realm of R&B in Wellingta’s new offering “No Goodbyes”

Wellingta is a rising R&B and dancehall singer/songwriter hailing from London. Originally from Berlin, Germany, her soulful cadences, tropical R&B leanings and multicultural perspective make her an exciting emerging artist, as she continues to thrive exponentially across her repertoire.



The song is about reconciling the desire to find real connection yet faltering along the way. That message is exquisitely distilled on the soaring chorus: “Stop now, we could get some rest,” angelic vocals ring out over feathery synths and hypnotizing beats, “before we break down, wanted more for less.” MYRNE’s trademark multi-layer, intricate arrangements morph and meld into something soothing and substantial.

“God in Oklahoma” was born when the artist returned to his hometown of Oklahoma City after a period of living the big-city life of Los Angeles. “I learned a lot during my time in L.A.,” Jackson says. “It’s a great city, but there is nothing like experiencing the warmth and support of people who love and accept you no matter what. It has inspired me to make music that I feel more deeply connected to than I ever have before. I am so proud and lucky to be a guy from Oklahoma, and I hope this song reflects that.”

SleazyWorld Go & G Herbo Heat Up The Streets On “Glitches”

“Glitches,” is released as rap’s Rookie Of The Year SleazyWorld Go continues a string of streets-first singles leading into his Where The Shooters Be mixtape out next Friday. Teasing the mixtape, Sleazy recently released “Creepers,” where he asserts how embedded he and his crew are in Kansas City. He raps, “Creep through/We gon’ jump out chase you down/Them youngins’ get on feet too.” His delivery is menacing yet unbothered, keeping levity on the track with bars about Christmas gifts and Jimmy Neutron.


“Both of these collaborations mean so much to me,” says Tauren Wells. “I was singing Mary Mary songs in church growing up, so now knowing Erica and being able to hear her voice on my song is surreal and a great honor. I met Jimmie in Nashville 10 years ago or so, back when we were both in our bands trying to figure out how to make it. Being on the other side of that journey now and seeing the country staple he’s become is something I genuinely celebrate and I can’t believe we get to work together all these years later.”
