Ebhoni – Goodaz

Coming off the heels of her debut project, Good Dick & Weed, an offering recently included on HipHopDX’s Best R&B Albums of 2021, promising Toronto R&B singer, Ebhoni, taps into her West Indian roots, with “Goodaz,” a clever flip on Capella Grey’s buzzing single, “Gyalis.

The video, shot by Zion ATL, shows Ebhoni with her girls sharing another side to the cautionary tale. “He tryna sneak sum vids of me, then wanna ask like ‘what we gon be,'” Ebhoni sings. The fun run-and-gun comes as she prepares to release the next video off GD&W, “IYKYK,” coming next week.

In May, Ebhoni released the unfiltered, melancholic “Rep It, ” the single that kicked off the Good Dick & Weed era. That stunning drop wasn’t even her first of 2021, however. Good Dick & Weed followed February’s X EP, which garnered considerable critical acclaim. In addition to Pitchfork plugging the release, HotNewHipHop wrote,  “Ebhoni has been one artist to keep an eye out for in the 6ix, ” and The Root wrote that her music  “makes you feel like you’ve been sipping on a fancy cocktail for the last few hours. ” It’s no wonder FLAUNT crowned her  “Our favorite new R&B artist. “

Over the last few years, Ebhoni’s string of animated R&B singles has won both commercial and critical success. In the middle of a productive 2019, Pitchfork wrote that she is  “reclaiming the Toronto R&B crown for women.” Throughout her career, Ebhoni has made a point to partner with Black-owned businesses, support other women artists and workers, and to uplift the local LGBTQ+ community, which she’s done through efforts like hosting Pride Toronto. Visuals like  “Rotation” only bolster the rep she’s built as one of R&B’s most magnetic young stars.

EBHONI — “ROTATION”

“Reclaiming the Toronto R&B crown for women.” — Pitchfork

Toronto R&B star Ebhoni returns today with an edgy, enthralling video for her dreamy single “Rotation.” The cut comes from her July project Good Dick & Weed, and finds Ebhoni over a woozy instrumental, singing an ode to taking control of your love life and keeping your options open. The video echoes that carefree spirit, featuring the artist riding a bike and flexing amidst a crowd of friends and dancers on a summer afternoon. Watch the video for “Rotation” HERE.

In the visual, Ebhoni flaunts a new look that showcases her badass side. With long, colorful nails and blown-out vintage film fuzz, Ebhoni looks like an icon from pop’s past transported to the modern day. Armed with a fun-loving crew, a few low-riding bicycles, a neon pink chore jacket and matching eyeshadow, Ebhoni radiates a cool that feels entirely her own.

The new video arrives amid a hot streak for the singer/songwriter. In May, Ebhoni released the unfiltered, melancholic “Rep It,” the single that kicked off the Good Dick & Weed era. That stunning drop wasn’t even her first of 2021, however. Good Dick & Weed followed February’s “X” EP, which garnered considerable critical acclaim.

EBHONI – GOOD DICK & WEED

EBHONI REPS FOR ALL THE TORONTO BAD GYALS ON NEW PROJECT “GOOD DICK & WEED”

A refreshing departure from the current landscape of R&B, 21-year-old singer/songwriter Ebhoni keeps it realer than real on her latest mixtape “Good Dick & Weed.” The 10-track project includes a collaboration with Jamaican rap star Beam in addition to Ebhoni’s breakout single “Rep It” & her confident ode to women with options,  “Rotation,” produced by industry heavyweight FORTHENIGHT (Bad Bunny, Don Toliver). Born & raised in Toronto, Good Dick & Weed is heavily influenced by Ebhoni’s Caribbean upbringing and is full of bold & honest convictions, a fierce body of work that is sure to redefine what it means to be a woman fully in charge and uninhibited.

Good Dick & Weed in many ways channels a keen sense of the best parts of what some would define as nostalgia: the era of mixtapes and tumblr, telling a story through visceral imagery and honest anecdotes, the internet in its rawer early form. Good Dick & Weed paints snapshots of different cities in the same harshly ephemeral gleam, from Westwood to Wilshire, specific places made universal by the heartbreak and hopefulness within them.

On opening track “If You Know You Know”, Ebhoni speaks directly to a night where gunfire punctured six bullet holes in the backseat window of her family’s car, and they had to temporarily relocate to her grandmother’s house, where she openly wonders: what if she had been sitting in that backseat?  Putting up walls for her own self-protection, she’s only now beginning to draw from the power that comes from her own vulnerability. “I really have been through so much, and it’s important to show that to help others who might not have that platform.” Good Dick & Weed draws from this agency, a declaration of assured frankness that shows the choices you make don’t have to be perfect as long as you believe in them.

Good Dick & Weed is a product of nighttime, connecting the dots and piecing together information from strings of late-night texts, voice notes from the calls you choose not to pick up, as well as poignant diary vignettes curled up in the sink from the washroom of the Atlanta apartment she currently resides. where the low-key 21-year-old feels her most authentic self. It’s also a matter-of-fact acknowledgement of growing up on Weston Road in Toronto where her father sold drugs, waking up to ringing doorbells early in the morning, seeing notes left on her mother’s car and playing outside of housing complexes while her father was inside doing deals.

Praised for her powerhouse talent, Office Magazine predicts Ebhoni “is on a fast track to worldwide recognition.” Earlier this year, Ebhoni released her EP “X,” to critical reception from press and rare groove enthusiasts. In addition to Pitchfork praising Ebhoni for “reclaiming the Toronto R&B crown for women.” HotNewHipHop wrote, “Ebhoni has been one artist to keep an eye out for in the 6ix,” it’s no wonder FLAUNT crowned her “Our favorite new R&B artist.” Tracks like “Rotation” only bolster the rep she’s built as one of R&B’s most magnetic young stars, and with the release of Good Dick & Weed, Ebhoni’s growing fandom will surely only continue to expand.

Ebhoni – Rep It

Unfiltered and unapologetic, Toronto’s “bad gyal” Ebhoni shares her latest visual for “Rep It.”. Directed by Jake & Oliver Productions, “Rep It” showcases the 21-year-old in her truest and most authentic form as she commands the screen with her confident “bad bitch” demeanor on full display. Ebhoni channels 90’s R&B nostalgia giving viewers an inside look on Toronto fashion, glam and culture. Watch HERE.

Framing the dissolution of a relationship that never was, her honest lyrics are a candid complement to the track that generates an emotional resonance beyond it’s barely two-minute run time. A product of both faded nighttime and the melancholic reflection of the morning after, Ebhoni’s matter-of-fact verses remain in the same harshly ephemeral gleam that highlights her own personal heartbreak into an evocative anecdote that feels both universally relatable and unexpectedly transcendent.
