JUNE3RD – JEMENI

JUNE3RD UNLEASHES EAGERLY AWAITED DEBUT ALBUM JEMENI

ALBUM FEATURING RICK ROSS AND FRIDAYY

‘JEMENI’ AVAILABLE EVERYWHERE TODAY HERE

 JEMENI came together originally from my name being June3rd and everyone assuming that it’s my birthday and that I’m an actual Gemini. Then from there, JEMENI became much more than a title. It became a character and symbolic of a different side/personality of me. We all have those different sides to us. Throughout the album, you’ll hear a roller coaster of different emotions and mindsets that change throughout me being young and figuring out life and what I want out of it,” June shares.

June3rd’s music is a collection of luxuriously smooth, suave, and spirited pop rhythms. The Florida-born, Los Angeles-based rapper explores the world around him through his unfiltered rhymes, dexterous harmonies, and haunting hooks. His timbre makes for flawless vocals that don’t require autotune. Never off pitch or out of range, June3rd delivers powerful performances with perfect pitch. The R&B virtuoso shows off his passionate pipes in every track, never letting his vocals falter from maintaining the perfect mid-tempo. Today, he releases his eagerly anticipated album, JEMENI.

One of the young musician’s most recent, highly-anticipated releases, “Ruff Ryder” was produced in collaboration with Fridayy. The hazy combination of genre-bending soundscapes shows off June3rd’s ability to fluidly deliver complex bars with prodigal proficiency. “Ruff Ryder” reflects the intricacy of navigating relationships, making for a release that is especially resonant with many of the R&B artist’s fans.

Possessing elements from the “sad rap” genre, which has massively grown in popularity lately, June3rd’s tracks intertwine an innovative intermeshing of R&B and lo-fi. While some of his mellifluous melodies sound like sad rap from afar, his lyrical content does not reflect the nihilism inherent to the genre. While June3rd’s songs may be short, every punchy track packs in major power.

June3rd’s music stands out with his well-rounded, concise releases that are sure to be remembered for long to come. Each track is short and sweet, but certainly not understated or rushed. June3rd never disturbs his music with an unnecessary bridge, pre-chorus or auto-tuned adjustments–his music simply stands as an authentic reflection of his craft and musical artistry.

From a technical understanding of music, June3rd’s releases are simple and easy to understand operatically. However, the complexity of this artist’s dynamic vocal range and intricate vocals encourages fans to play June3rd on repeat. His poignant beats, combined with his striking vocals, produces melodious masterpieces. If you’re seeking music to relax your spirits, elevate your atmosphere or add to your newest Spotify playlist, you need to check out June3rd. The rapper’s infectious hits such as “1942”, “Wait 4 It”, and “POV” are sure to be your favorite new summer anthems!

AvailableHERE “Girl” touches on a subject that’s rarely discussed in any forum, the emotional damage inflicted when, as Missal sings, “women hate on other women.” The stripped-back yet intricately textured track unfolds with both gentle playfulness and piercing vulnerability.  

“It’s been amazing to see this huge influx of art, music and media by women and for women intended to support and encourage every kind of women to claim our space. I think it’s important to identify what makes us stronger and louder, and we have proven that we can shift the culture around us by coming together to address our common issues and goals,” says Donna Missal. “When we criticize and attack one another, we diminish our voice in the conversation for equality and social change, so I wanted to write something that speaks on that experience. I don’t know a single woman who hasn’t experienced this in some way, and I want to see that change.”

The official video, directed by Justin Bettman, can be viewedHERE.  Bettman  who has earned acclaim for the ongoing art project Set in the Street, which repurposes found materials to create interior sets on city streets  also helmed the video for Missal’s,Driving.”
