By teckzilla Word Is Bond


Emerging Toronto singer-songwriter Amaal hit us up with the surreal visual for her new single “Not What I Thought”. The love ballad is a prime example of her vocal strengths delivered in the right direction. Over a smooth, ethereal but bass booming soundscape courtesy of producer Iva Golubovic she takes the listener on a reflective journey down love’s memory lane.

The single gets a boost with a stunning music video shot in an other-worldly location and was directed by Sean Brown (Daniel Caesar, K. Roosevelt) along with Amaal’s creative direction. The video follows Amaal in various breathtaking landscapes courtesy of Sister Nature. It’s pretty enthralling, to be honest as the reliance on the natural forces makes it super organic and heartwarming.

In other news, Amaal reportedly has a new EP in the works so  “Not What I Thought” is just a tip of the iceberg. Get the song on all DSPs HERE.

Lenny Harold delivers some heartfelt vibes on “More” 

By teckzilla Word Is Bond


Teddy Riley’s protégé, former Blackstreet member, and New Jersey R&B singer and songwriter Lenny Harold kick start 2019 with the release of the video of his highly anticipated music video for fan-favorite Cosmic album track “More”. The Armando ‘Mandobeats’ Colon, produced cut exudes a vintage RnB vibe ripe with alluring chords and Lenny Harold’s expressive vocal performance that is both heartfelt and soothing.

The visual was directed by rising cinematographer and photographer Richard ‘Parlay’ Copier of OneiPhotography, who brings the record to life with its vivid depiction of the song’s premise where we get to see the main character in the song tread the path of the unknown in this thing called love.

Speaking about the inspiration behind the ‘More’ video, Lenny Harold says, “we wanted to create a visual that could tell several stories, with the main focus on our leading lady having to make a decision that’s often vital to the heart for all of us. You’re not sure if she did, if she wants to, or if she’s just thinking about it, and ultimately, we don’t know. We wanted the video to have the ability to connect with everyone regardless of the scenario, and I hope it does just that”.

Counting the likes of Quincy JonesMarsha Ambrosius and Jamie Fox as fans, and with three critically acclaimed R&B projects already under his belt, before he released last year’s well-received Cosmic album, Lenny Harold is coming into 2019 as one of the best pure R&B talents out of America today. The rest of the year will see the New Jersey native embark on a short run ‘Cosmic’ tour across the US, along with the release of more visuals from the album, starting with ‘Heat’ in February.
