NJOMZA – Lucky

The Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter NJOMZA returns with the tender new single and video Lucky, out now on SinceThe80s/Motown. Listen HERE. The track, built around gospel guitar chords and NJOMZA’s ascendant vocals, is a warm, soul-inflected reminder to hold your loved ones close. She sounds lost and lonely at first, but as the song unfolds, it builds to a kindhearted climax, repeating insistently, “If you love someone let them know.”

Lucky arrives accompanied by a black-and-white video directed by Griffin Olis and NJOMZA. The visual intertwines dreamlike snippets of home-video footage with shots of her laying in the sand. It’s a stirring document of memory and loss, underscoring the songߣs message to not take anything or anyone for granted. Watch it HERE.

For NJOMZA, Lucky is only the latest in a long run of captivating pop songs. In April, she released the gauzy, sensual single Bite, which has garnered over 2.5 million total streams. Over the last few years, sheߣs drawn both critical acclaim and commercial success for her work with Mac Miller who signed her to his REMember Music label when she was a teen and Ariana Grande, with whom she’s co-written hits like 7 Rings and Thank U, Next.

All the while, she’s been twisting up R&B and pop signifiers on her own songs, on singles like 2019’s No One Is Spared and EPs like 2017’s Sad For You and 2018’s Vacation. People are listening too. Over the years, her tracks have racked up over 50 million global streams. As she gears up to release more new music in 2021, Lucky is a winning reminder of what drew people to her in the first place: the emotion and care she’s able to pack into her memorable melodies.

R&B SUPERSTARS BOBBY BROWN RELEASES NEW SINGLE “LIKE BOBBY”

Los Angeles, CA – There’s no slowing down for the legendary R&B artist, Bobby Brown as BET’s highly-anticipated mini-series, The Bobby Story, grossed 6.6 million viewers and trended on social media when it premiered this week. Just as the final half of his television biopic comes to a close, the GRAMMY winning singer is back with a new track; one which should excite new and old fans alike. “Like Bobby” is now available at all digital retailers and you can listen to the song HERE.

Produced by GRAMMY winning producers, Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds, and Teddy Riley, “Like Bobby” manages to savor the singer’s signature sound while flavoring it with the vibe of today’s hip-hop and R&B. As he confidently shrugs off naysayers, Bobby reminds everyone of the raspy vocals of fiery personality that catapulted him to superstar status in the first place.

Hailing from Boston, Massachusetts, Bobby Brown first rose to fame as a member of the ever-popular, New Edition. Following his time with the group, he successfully launched a solo career churning out of five multi-platinum studio albums over the span of 20 years. Through his music, as well as his personal life, he has remained an icon, continuing to perform live to this day.
