Chanel West Coast drops a New Single

America’s bad ass sweetheart Chanel West Coast drops her new single/video “Old Fashioned” today featuring Nessly. The Quentin Tarantino-esque Wild West themed hip hop video was directed by Edgar Stevens and produced by Riveting Entertainment.

Comments West Coast:  “Old fashioned is a song I made about keepin’ it classy like they used too. There’s something about old Hollywood glamour that I respond too. Back in the day when people got together, spoke to one another and experienced life outside the worlds of our phone. Having values in which you come home for dinner, a man opens a car door, and finding love was going out on dates, not just sliding in DM’s. My whole upcoming project I’m taking it back to things that warm my heart, inspire me, and have a little nostalgia. But don’t get it twisted, I’m about women’s rights and leaps and bounds we as women have made.

Just want to see some real gentlemen and women out there keep it classy and sexy. At least part of the time lmfao!”

DAYDREAM MASI × “STARDUST”

DAYDREAM MASI PREMIERES NEW SINGLE “STARDUST”

NEW PROJECT SLOW RAGE DUE OUT SOON

OHIO-BRED ARTIST TO PERFORM AT SMOKIN GROOVES FEST ON 6/15

 

Emerging singer/rapper/songwriter/producer daydream Masi has shared a magnetic and moody new single called “Stardust.” Released via Interscope Records, “Stardust” is available now through all digital retailers.

Listen to “Stardust” by daydream Masi HERE

Hailing from Akron, Ohio, daydream Masi merges hip-hop, soul, R&B, and electronic music into a lush yet bold sound that defies all genre boundaries. On “Stardust,” the 21-year-old artist dreams up a smooth but unpredictable sonic palette, unfolding in airy textures and ominous beats, subtly sweet melodies and jagged distortion.

Last month, daydream Masi made his Interscope debut with “Nightlife,” a hazy and hypnotic track built on tropically inspired production. Now at work on a full-length project titled Slow Rage, he aims to instill a certain sense of emotional purpose into each song he creates.

“I always write something for someone,” says daydream Masi. “It’s rare [that] I’m writing songs for no reason. I’m always thinking of someone in my mind when I’m creating music and the vibe I can give them, the vibe shared together.”

On June 15, daydream Masi will take the stage at Smokin Grooves Fest in Long Beach, CA. Headlined by Usher and Erykah Badu, the festival also includes performances by artists like Ella Mai, Common, Kali Uchis, and The Pharcyde. Go here for more info.

About daydream Masi:

Born and raised in Akron, daydream Masi grew up in a musically inclined family and began to release his own material around the age of 17. Along with mining inspiration from the inventive artistry of Childish Gambino and Kanye West, he’s continually focused on bringing both raw sensitivity and purposeful world-building to his music — a dynamic he defines as “emotional escapism.” Prior to signing with Interscope, daydream Masi caught buzz with self-released songs like “Marguerite” (a track that’s now amassed over 446K streams on SoundCloud) and “Eucalyptus Tree” (now at over 245K streams).
