RYAN TREY – ONLY US

Just in time to heat up summer playlists, emerging singer/rapper/songwriter Ryan Trey dropped the smooth single “Only Us,” with Detroit standout Babyface Ray and its official music video today. In the video, Ryan asserts his dedication to his girl from initial sparks of romance at a daytime group hangout to Ryan and his lady on a solo adventure as he charms her with his witty lyrics and unique flow. The video’s homegrown, natural aspect shines as it flips between shots seemingly from home movies like with budding relationship. Babyface Ray slides in like a seasoned wingman, detailing his own POV in his verse to assist Ryan’s setup. The video was directed by Mac Grant, who has also helmed clips for JID, 21 Savage, YFN Lucci, EARTHGANG and Rapsody. Watch “Only Us” HERE.

“Only Us” sustains the building momentum for Ryan Trey, which began with the titillating video for “Slide.” In that video, directed by Joshua Valle, Ryan seeks an escape after a fallout with his girlfriend and ventures to the strip club with his boys. There, a bodacious dancer catches his eye and lures him to the bar, and, despite his girlfriend’s pleas via text, Ryan gets a private dance and remains at the club for the night. A drunken Ryan finds himself in a daze, thinking he sees his girlfriend at the club when in reality, it’s the dancer who caught his attention. Watch “Slide” HERE.

“Slide” appears on Ryan’s breakthrough release, A 64 East Saga. The 14-track EP houses a collaboration with Bryson Tiller, and the production from a slew of heavyweights, including Boi1da, Vinylz, Jahaan Sweet, OG Parker, Rob Halladay and Albert Lee, allows Ryan’s dulcet vocals and steely wordplay to thrive. The project garnered positive reviews from publications such as Billboard, which billed him a “threatening combo artist within the independent circuit.” Thanks to the project, Ryan has soared to over 120 million streams in the U.S. alone.

Beyond the music world, Ryan continues to up his brand in the fashion game. Earlier this year, BAPE and Reebok announced their new collaboration on the sneaker’s Club C and Instapump Fury featuring #JUSTAREGULARDAYS Bryson Tiller, Nia Sultana, and Ryan Trey.

Role Model – Rx

Role Model (a.k.a. Tucker Pillsbury) released his debut album, Rx. He also unveiled the music video for the title track.

His previous single “if jesus saves, she’s my type” amassed over 1.5M streams in its first week (Click HERE). Rx is an extremely dynamic body of work. Within it exists an underlying message about the power of a woman. Elements of religion, sex and love layer throughout. Find Role Model’s debut album at all digital retail providers via Interscope Records

Click HERE to listen. 

Role Model says about the album, “In the simplest terms, the album is about the power of a woman and how it healed me the past couple years. As much as it’s telling a story, it also shows the crazy shift in my life. A woman saved me and brought me out of a hole. Lyrically, I wanted to put her on a pedestal, like a higher power.”

The Music Video

The music video for “rx” presents an emotional, performance-based visual. It takes place during a long, lonely drive with a vulnerable Tucker at the wheel. As Tucker drives, the song builds as do his emotions, becoming especially triggered with each chorus. Towards the end of the song, the video cuts to a new frame revealing a girl has been sitting next to him in the car the entire time.

Role Model says about the music video, “I wrote the video to be as simple as it possibly could be. The focus should be on the lyrics and the emotion involved. I think the two frames sum it up perfectly.” In addition, Role Model announced his first-ever “TOURx 2022” World Tour. This is the artist’s most massive tour to date, as he will be performing at larger venues across the U.S., and he will be taking his incredible show overseas to the U.K. and Europe for the first time.

Singer/Songwriter NO1-NOAH (Ghetto Earth Records/Interscope Records) kicks off his next era with the release of his new single, “Bonjour,” with his label head, R&B superstar Summer Walker. The melodic slow jam showcases the New York native at his best, blending effortlessly between layers of enticing sensuality, raw vulnerability and self-assured confidence.

After displaying beams of promise on Walker’s sizzling anthems, NO1-NOAH inked a deal with her label Ghetto Earth Records in December 2020. Her first artist, NO1 looks to rattle the cages of R&B with his emo-leaning tracks and sticky hooks. His debut record, “Ridin For My Love,” flaunted his pillowy vocals and gutsy lyrics, the follow-up “Bounce” presented a seductive side, and his melodic muscles were on full display with his anthemic banger “Thank God.” Not only did the records demonstrate his versatility and ease at mastering a range of sounds and styles, they also skyrocketed the newcomer to more than 130 million streams in the U.S. alone. The budding star has also been on the road for “The Summer Walker Series” concerts. Most recently in Houston and Chicago and will next visit Dallas on April 16.

The promising songwriter was named one of Billboard’s 15 Hip-Hop & R&B Artists to Watch in 2020. Touted for his “ethereal vocals and intrepid lyricism,” NO1 first caused shockwaves in the R&B world when he appeared on Summer Walker’s EP Life on Earth on the standout tracks “SWV” and “White Tee.” With publications such as Rolling Stone and XXL already praising NO1-NOAH for his extraordinary talents, “Bonjour” and You Should Come Over herald the coming of a full-fledged star.
