Ki Storii shines on new single, “Shawty Lo” (ft. Cheek the Profit)
Bronx artist Ki Storii came onto our radar for her recent single, “Shawty Lo”, which features fellow Renaissance Music member Cheek the Profit of New Jersey. An electrifying, catchy single that could rattle any track or provide an apt soundtrack to any night of clubbing and partying, “Shawty Lo”‘s infectious bounce and sharply-crafted vocals demand the listener’s attention immediately. Containing raw, hard-hitting percussion, catchy key riffs, and heavy 808s, “Shawty Lo” is a powerful, and simultaneously sensual, song that provides truly engaging energy.
Talking about “Shawty Lo”, Ki Storii says, “Shawty Lo is about being the life of the party and how the guys love being around her.” This quote rings true from the opening remarks where she states “m*f*ckers out here asking for an only fans page… HA”.

AVX shares infectious album, ‘Highs & Lows’
New Jersey artist AVX has shared a new album called Highs & Lows. The album follows up several singles that built momentum within AVX’s fast-growing fanbase. Highs & Lows fully meets their anticipation with poignant, dynamic tracks that remain memorable. Providing examples of AVX’s songwriting skill and ear for sleek, stylish production, Highs & Lows is an exciting and emotive new offering.
Highs & Lows opens with the sharply-crafted “Manifest,” and opens the album in a focused manner with its atmospheric sound and potent message. “OMW” follows with an elegant cut of gorgeous strings contrasting neatly with a grooving, immersive rhythm section. Album highlight “DEMONS” contains ethereal vocal samples and drifting keys that make for, as clean drums knock beneath, setting the tone for AVX’s dynamic vocal performance. The album closes with the emotionally dense “DEEP END,” which vividly describes AVX’s inner world and draws the listener into it, finishing the project strongly and in a memorable fashion.
The latest from AVX, Highs & Lows, makes for a strong release with its sleek sound and smart, focused songwriting.
