Houston rapper and creative HVN releases his brand new EP, ALL GIRLS GO TO HEAVEN overnight. ALL GIRLS GO TO HEAVEN is a stacked project featuring eight head swivelling tracks that contemplates the young artist’s troubled past while wrestling with the future ahead. Tracks like “HELLSCAT” and “HISNEYLAND” hits hard teetering on digicore sounds and glitchy production value while HVN comes off philosophical on “MARINE” and “SIMPLE”; which comes paired with an incredible electric guitar outro.

The new EP is a play on the artist’s own name and the follow up to his debut project Welcome to Heaven (2020) which spawned breakout hit “Backhand.” Earlier this year, HVN came hot and heavy with single “Draco” as well as a fiery feature on “Smoke” off of Don Toliver’s Life Of A Don alongside SoFaygo. The young artist who has received cosigns from Virgil Abloh, Kevin Abstract, Taco Bennett has also been spotlighted as an ‘artist to watch’ by the likes of Rolling Stone, Pigeons & Planes, Houston Chronicle, Hypebeast and more, further establishing himself as a creative force coming out of Houston.

Houston, TX rapper HVN’s story revolves around persistence. The multi-faceted creative started his burgeoning career with a clothing brand at 15 years old spurred on by a six-month recovery period in hospital after suffering a stroke due to his sickle cell disease. HVN couldn’t walk, talk, eat, or go to the bathroom himself, and was stuck in a hospital bed where he planned up the ‘Don’t Die’ brand. In the years to come, ‘Don’t Die’ grew from a clothing label into a catalyst for the music and fashion scenes in Houston, hosting parties and live performances for independent artists who couldn’t find venues to perform their music.
In late 2019, HVN decided to make a project of his own after years of being in the studio with friends, freestyling for fun and watching them create. These early sessions eventually formed his 2020 debut project, Welcome to HVN. The 7-song album—led by standout cut, “Backhand”—made an immediate impact. The response pushed HVN to take music more seriously and was followed up by the November 2020 single “Demon,” featuring a Trey Lyons directed music video with a cameo from Taco Bennett. He is now signed to Field Trip Recordings/Interscope Records.
