HOW UP-AND-COMING HIP HOP ARTIST ROYAL RASHAD IS HANDCRAFTING HIS CAREER TO HIS FULL ADVANTAGE


Hello Royal Rashad
, Thanks for coming to Honk Magazine to talk about your career.

Tell us a little more about when you first got into music?

I got into music at an early age, 13 I believe. I remember hearing one of my cousins freestyle and I was like “yo how do you do that… just brainstorm rhymes on the fly?” He said “man you just flow with the beat and say what’s on your mind” then he started beating on the porch and told me to try.. that’s when history started.

“Lonely Satellite” by Lexi Berg shares a serenade for the solitary heart

Lexi Berg

From the cozy corners of iconic venues like Ronnie Scotts to the vast expanses of the Isle of Wight Festival, Lexi Berg has captivated audiences with her enchanting performance and magnetic presence, now delivering her latest single, “Lonely Satellite.” This celestial gem orbits the heart’s loneliest spaces, transforming profound, expansive, and intimate closure into universally resonant anthems while offering a comforting embrace.

Born in Stockholm, the Swedish-American songstress, already making waves in the London music scene, brings fresh yet nostalgically rich folk-pop influences to the table, underscoring why she’s a rising star. “Lonely Satellite” perfectly encapsulates this blend, delivering a dreamy, nostalgic, refreshingly modern soundscape. Helmed by accomplished producer James Eliot, recognized for his collaborations with Ellie Goulding and Black Honey, the track is a masterclass balancing a warm acoustic base harmoniously interwoven with subtle innovative electronic components.

Berg’s powerful, raspy voice, reminiscent of a modern-day Stevie Nicks, adds an intoxicating depth to this soulful track that draws audiences in from the first strum of the guitar. Her vocal delivery is filled with an aching vulnerability that makes the song’s message hit home. The contemplative lyrics, penned in the tranquil fields of Wales, offer a sense of solace and connection, becoming the guiding star and serving as an antidote to urban life’s often overwhelming pace.

The resounding nature of Berg’s vocal soars introspectively; it reminds us of the power of music to heal and unify; even in our loneliest moments, we are not truly alone. “Lonely Satellite” represents a poignant ode for anyone who has ever felt like a lone satellite drifting in the vast universe, an auditory adventure through the cosmos of human emotional experience. This exceptional composition encourages the audience to sing along and feel less lonely, fostering a sense of community. This is Lexi Berg at her finest, delivering an emotionally stirring anthem that lingers long after the final chord dissipates.

MYAH ignites an anthemic symphony of unworthiness in her new single, “Flames”

MYAH

MYAH stirs up a bittersweet agony of a relationship undone by an avoidant partner’s attachment style plagued by dark thoughts of insecurity with her latest release, “Flames.” This song is a desperate plea and an unfiltered lament with a catchy, mainstream pop vibe. It’s set against a backdrop of shimmering alternative pop-punk melodies that grip audiences and don’t let go until the haunting outro.

Hailing from the sun-kissed streets of South Florida and embodying influences from the brooding lyrics of Arctic Monkeys to the ethereal soundscapes of Sylvan Esso shine through in this impactful creation. The song starts with a tantalizing fusion of upbeat pop rhythms and introspective verses, instantaneously immersing the listener into emotional upheaval. Her candid and evocative vocal delivery guides us through the heart-wrenching tale of love slipping away due to feelings of unworthiness with profound lucidity.

Lyrically, MYAH proves herself a master of the emotional spectrum, skillfully exploring themes of excitement and wonder intertwined with a symphony of love and the devastating lows of sorrow, weaving them into a coherent narrative that feels personal and universal. The recurring motif of “if only” in the outro, a poignant allusion to the movie ‘Holes,’ underscores the sense of a cursed love doomed by internal conflicts. This artful reference adds layers of meaning, encouraging listeners to reflect on their own “if only” moments.

MYAH’s capacity to conjure vivid, romantic imagery through her poetic craftsmanship makes this track one of the most striking in her repertoire. Its cinematic quality and heartfelt lyricism leave a lasting impression long after the haunting composition’s final note. In “Flames,” MYAH has crafted a must-listen sonic anthem for anyone who has ever struggled with the paradox of wanting to hold on while feeling compelled to let go. It’s a beautiful reminder of love’s complexities and its flames that can both warm and burn, wrapped in a sound that is uniquely her own.
