How does one cap off an absolutely phenomenal summer of music, with the level of originality & creativity on display via new & old artists alike? Take 5 of VA’s most talented, under-turned-on the radar musicians and put them on a single track, and let the magic shape itself. With some assistance from Noah Kenton, Vin Atlas & 4-ill, the latest gem from dynamic duo RoesShamBeaux (consisting of MC JayTheHomie and producer Mikey Sol) serves as a victory lap for the pair, after the success of the wildly-popular summer anthem ‘Tequila Toes,’ which was released earlier this summer.
‘Playground’ is a powerful ode to the unknown and unspoken – a message made even more powerful once the backbone of the track takes center focus. With a peering eye on every artist featured, all 5 creatives manage to take the song to a new level via their own individuality, while simultaneously combining their greatest strengths and accomplishing perhaps the most impressive feat of all – coming together as one. Emotions as vast as the ocean are blended; from hope to sorrow, depression to joy; and back again – yet the track is wholly transparent in its meaning and intent, it walks the thin line between pure and tainted – something everyone who listens will be able to relate with.
