PARIS BRYANT — “TRAGEDY”

Rising talent, Paris Bryant, shares the visual for his latest R&B track “Tragedy” today. On the heartsick single the 17-year-old artist shares an R&B approach to his music by tapping into his vocal abilities. He investigates the challenges of a relationship filled with dishonesty, sharing, “Every lie ends in tragedy no matter how you handle it. My song is inspired by past relationships where communication wasn’t something the other partner did.” 

Listen to “Tragedy” via Cinematic Music Group/Geffen Records HERE. The Llama directed video is filled with striking visuals that helps the story come to life—deep tones and roses catching fire, the toxicity becomes apparent as we listen to Paris sing about his loved one causing clear suspicion and deception—watch the video HERE.

Paris Bryant recently made his official debut with his track and video for “Mad Mad,” which now has nearly fifty thousand views. On the song he weaves together thought-provoking bars and show-stopping vocals above a backdrop of acoustic guitar and 808s. The accompanying visual finds him rapping alone around New York in the middle of the night as it captures his palpable charisma on-screen. The track led to quick praise from Triller who spotlighted him as a featured artist as well as recognition from REVOLT, HotNewHipHop, RESPECT and Uproxx who listed the track on their “Best New Hip-Hop This Week” roundup. Soon after he released his second track “Proud Of You” which features fellow New York rapper, Jay Gwaupo and most recently “Demon Time” which has over 131k views and led to HNHH to praised the track as a “fun follow-up for Bryant and yet another example of his ability to make catchy tracks.” The budding talent is quickly on his way upward as he continues to assert himself song after song.

ESSENCE Festival Features Bobby Brown × Keith Sweat

ESSENCE Festival of Culture will feature R&B legends Bobby Brown and Keith Sweat on July 1.

It’s official! The battle for the title of R&B king is back on the line and this time, two of the genre’s icons are going head-to-head for the crown in a Verzuz battle to rival the best of them—and it’s all going down at the 2021 Essence Festival of Culture presented by Coca-Cola.

Get ready to watch none other than Bobby Brown and Keith Sweat go hit-for-hit in what’s sure to be an epic showdown filled with a host of the R&B classics we love. Mark your calendars and get your watch party crew together to watch these stars on Thursday, July 1 at 8 PM EST via ESSENCE.com, the Triller app, and the Verzuz TV Instagram page. The Essence Festival x Verzuz stage is a show you surely won’t want to miss.

Bobby Brown is an American singer, songwriter, rapper, and dancer who has been dominating the music industry since the 1980s. Originally part of the R&B and pop group New Edition, Brown stepped out for a highly successful solo career in 1985. He’s known for his hits like Don’t Be Cruel and Every Little Step. His sound was influenced by musicians like Prince, Michael Jackson, and Marvin Gaye, which served him well as he went on to win Grammy Award and even cameo in Ghostbusters II, for which he contributed two songs on the soundtrack. He later married (and divorced) superstar singer Whitney Houston and wrote a tell-all book about his life, which was released shortly after her death. He has since returned his focus to his music, including performing once before with Keith Sweat at the Valentine’s Day Music Festival in Houston, TX.

Brown will appear opposite Keith Sweat, a fellow singer, producer, and R&B genius. He was also an important early figure in the new jack swing movement. Sweat’s career began in the 1970s and he has gone on to soar to new heights ever since. The musician honed his craft in his early years while he was a part of the music group Jamilah, before branching out as a solo artist in 1984. His collection of hits like I Want Her, Make You Sweat, and I’ll Give All My Love To You won him not only fans and fame but also awards recognizing his stellar R&B style. He eventually found himself working with other expert musicians again when he helped form the R&B supergroup LSG with Gerald Levert and Johnny Gill. He also discovered and supported other popular R&B groups like Silk and Kut Klose.

As a part of their showdown, the Essence Festival × Verzuz stage will feature an endless list of hits like Bobby Brown’s My Prerogative, Don’t Be Cruel, and Every Little Step, as well as Keith Sweat’s Nobody, Twisted, and Make It Last Forever. In other words, you’ll want to have all your best dance moves ready, folks. 

Essence Festival of Culture x Verzuz is sponsored by Ciroc, Nike, and Coca-Cola.
