Texas artist D. Brooks and Little Rock’s Tan The Terrible are back on the NTRL Exclusive sponsored track this time with the support and production from GBC contributor Hovenchy. Known for their melodies and pop samples with a heavy dose of auto-tune, the duo turns “Rockstar Two” into an anthem worth of the summer. The first installment of “Rockstar” made some noise in 2017 hitting Elevator and Daily Chiefers while running up 7k plays on Soundcloud. This time around Tan takes the chorus, laying down a catchy confession of why his girl hates him and his lifestyle.
“I’m a rockstar too, and she hate that too”
D. Brooks verse shows the growth his music has taken since we’ve last heard him on our pages. Engineered by Triga, D’s voice blends well, mixing melody into his verse effortlessly. DJ Chxno, the youngest of the OVO Chopstars likes what he hears and adds the official Chopped Not Slopped version. Texas is on fire, let us know which one you like most. Stay tuned for more D. Brooks, his second album Boy On Fire is due later this fall.
Over the last two years, Juan Mone has been putting in serious ground work in Texas as a member of the Plug Brothaz. Their debut single “Too Eazy”, was a North Texas college party anthem that was virtually unescapable from the speakers of any apartment party. Now Juan is releasing his music as a solo artist, and his debut mixtape Juanito is one of the most solid bodies of work that has come out of Texas this year.
For his latest release, Juan took to the mountains of Denver, Colorado with directors Zay Jones and Dance Dailey to stunt on his haters. The visual is an energetic, fast paced banger that will have you hooked from the jump. The official music video for Outro was premiered yesterday via Elevator Mag and is absolutely a must see.
Fresh off the release of her last record that was exclusively hosted by Elevator, Samantha Stone is back with a new heart break anthem titled, “I Don’t.” The record is a collaborative effort between her and Dallas, TX. based singer John Rose. John began to receive overwhelming attention in 2017 as his debut single Beautiful reached 2.8 million plays, a landmark accomplishment for an unsigned artist making music from his home that led to a recording deal with New York’s 300 Entertainment. The two singers gracefully intertwine over an airy and melodic production that showcases both of their lyrical ability and vocal prowess.
“The song is about being so infatuated with an ex lover, while trying to get over them at the same time. I had a love so toxic and dangerous, I knew I had to get away. I didn’t want to feel miserable anymore and the only thing I could do was run away.” – Samantha Stone
