KELOW LATESHA releases new ep via 360 MAGAZINE

TURBO EP

PG County, Maryland native, acclaimed artist Kelow LaTesha today has released her long-awaited sophomore EP TURBO in partnership with SoundCloud. The genre-defying latest body of work from one of DMV’s most distinctive voices in Rap is available to experience HERE.

Packed with electrifying anthems created to resonate with one and all, TURBO is an apex of self-expression, self-reflection, and self-care that delivers bursts of escapism and unimaginable bliss blanked in sonic daringness from the wide-ranged artist.

Creating TURBO, I constantly found myself in a perspective where I had to turn up from such a low position, but I literally couldn’t think any other way to go than up … each record recorded has a lot of energy, A LOT OF JOY, and was a good time to create. I want each listener to take these pieces of me as a pick me up & motivation to go TURBO” – Kelow LaTesha 

TURBO is heralded in by her latest single, “Relax,” which arrived today with an accompanying music video HERE, along with several other exuberant singles, including “He Ain’t Mine,” featuring Asian Doll praised by XXL, UPROXX, and more, “GENIUS,” “Charizard” and “Tititinc,” praised by XXL, VIBE, Earmilk with a feature from the late Goonew—a fellow Maryland native and close comrade to Kelow.

For this project, Kelow continues to deliver on her natural ability to take complete creative control. This body of art reflects her growth as an artist with over a decade of work that attests to her prowess and acclaim. Her most recent project TSA (2020), serves as the antithesis for TURBO—from someone bracing themself for a new destination, uneasy with not knowing where exactly they will land, to embracing the journey in all forms; the rough patches and turbulence that later leaves one at their highest whilst ascending to self-actualization. A staple in the DMV’s rap scene, having collaborated with the likes of Goldlink for his album At What Cost (2017), offering a profane prayer-life verse (also heard at the beginning of his video for “Crew”), to collaborating with Lil Uzi Vert, Rico Nasty and more the attention for Kelow LaTesha has remained evident. As she continues to create a legacy of artistic excellence, no holds are barred for the high-powered music star.

KELOW LATESHA – TURBO

On August 4, 2022, Kelow LaTesha has announced the forthcoming release of her eagerly-awaited new EP, TURBO due out in partnership with SoundCloud. Arriving on August 19, TURBO, in short for turbulence, takes listeners on a ride that provides a front-and-center look at Kelow‘s trials, triumphs and transformative experiences that have led her to stand tall as the woman she is today.

In addition to being named part of First on SoundCloud‘s 2022 artist class, earlier this year Kelow LaTesha launched a partnership with SoundCloud to bring her career to the next level. She shared the news with fans today on her social channels. 

Since launching the partnership, Kelow is rapidly on the rise – she’s been featured in Vibe, HipHopDX, Earmilk, and XXL‘s “Best New Hip-Hop Songs,” and recently released tracks have earned placements on coveted playlists across major platforms, including Apple Music‘s “New in Hip-Hop,” Spotify’s “New Joints,” Tidal’s “Rising” and others. 

Taking an all gas no breaks approach on the road to TURBO, Kelow‘s latest singles “He Ain’t Mine” featuring Asian Doll, “Titanic” featuring Goonew, and “Genius” all, in their own right, have quickly become stand-out releases for the DMV-bred artist. Released last month, “He Ain’t Mine” received co-signs as the ‘Best in Hip Hop’ for the week from outlets such as XXL, UPROXX, SOHH and more

Kelow continues her triumphant run as she paves the way to deliver what is set to be one of the most discussed projects of the year. 

Forget about the stigmas, labels, ideologies and pre-determinations of today’s hip-hop artists, because when you meet Kelow LaTesha, none of the industry standards apply. Born and raised in Prince George’s County, Maryland, the imaginative artist has had the desire to create since she was a child, where she often expressed herself through painting and music. Since then, Kelow has ascended to become a dynamic fixture on the rap scene with the uncanny ability to transport her fans both sonically and visually with a thoughtfully crafted aesthetic.  

Kelow garnered acclaim and a range of fans thanks to her definitive album TSA which was released in 2019 followed closely by TSA Deluxe in 2020. Songs like “PowerPuff Girls,” “Hammer Time,” and “The Real Deal,” showed off her ability to transcend genres and consistently innovate. 

Prior to the release of TSA, Kelow delivered singles and visuals as a creative director under the name BUTTA, opening up for acts like Metro Boomin. She also built buzz with the success of her EP Amethyst Stoner and its adrenaline-fuelled tune “Finna” that became a viral hit on SoundCloud. “Finna” was later transformed into a charismatic remix featuring Lil Uzi Vert.

Kelow is in the business of making music that moves you, makes you feel good and connects people. Her upcoming project Turbo is set for release in 2022. This is just the beginning.
