Lil Baby Promises New Music On The Way

Lil Baby’s 2020 campaign has been most impressive, with the rapper’s My Turn album emerging as one of the most impactful albums to have dropped in this damned year of 2020. A mainstay on the Billboard charts, not to mention a major step in solidifying the rapper’s superstar status, My Turn proved that Lil Baby was more than able to stand tall in the rap game; it’s no wonder he consciously decided to significantly up his feature verse rate to a staggering one hundred thousand dollars.

While many artists might have been content with coasting off the strength of a major success, Lil Baby isn’t ready to let the dust settle quite yet. In fact, he appears adamant in his desire to end the year on a high note, having previously teased another album before 2021 rolls around. And though it won’t have any songs remotely resembling the sociopolitically-charged “The Bigger Picture,” many remain eager to see how his artistry evolves following the critically acclaimed My Turn.

Evidently, it would appear that Baby’s time is coming sooner rather than later. Earlier this morning, the rapper took to Twitter to declare that new music was on the way, though he specified little more than that. Given how fast things drop in this day and age, it wouldn’t be surprising to see a single released as early as Friday — purely speculative, of course. That’s simply how quick turnaround times have become. Either way, all signs point to an active conclusion to the year from Lil Baby, who may very well end up as the 2020 MVP when all is said and done.

Promising New Artist Taydem Shoesmith To Release Debut Single On New Year’s Eve

The singer-songwriter, actress and performer will release the electro-pop single “Are You Clapping?” just in time for New Year’s playlists.

With an affinity for music from a very young age, Taydem Shoesmith has been exploring songwriting for quite some time. Having multiple IMDB acting and composing credits to her name, Taydem is now diving into the pop music market with her debut single, “Are You Clapping?” The electro-pop/dance anthem, written by Shoesmith, comes from a very personal place; one she hopes will connect with listeners:

‘I think this is my first song that was written out of anger,” Taydem recalls. “I remember writing in my lyric book about how frustrated I was with the people around me and society in general. We think we have to act like the perfect person when we talk to people or go on dates. We’re kind of setting ourselves up for failure because we’re acting like someone we think they want to be with. I mean, it makes sense because in the past, relationships weren’t about love or connections. They were basically just business deals. I guess I just got to the point of wondering why I was doing this. Why were people telling me to talk more, smile more, flirt better, don’t be boring, etc, so often, when it came to relationships. Because not only was it exhausting to keep that facade up, I was also disappointed in myself for basically faking who I was, just to catch some guy’s attention. So through this song, I’m saying that I’m done putting up a show.   Having confidence in the choices we make is very important, no matter if it’s in relationships, jobs, or life in general. And that is the message I hope people will take away from this song.”

From singer-songwriter to pop and alternative, Taydem’s music is a unique amalgamation of different genres and influences. Her musical inspirations include Michael Jackson, Rascal Flatts, Billie Holiday, Sabrina Carpenter, Camila Cabello and more. Her acting debut was in 2020, when she was cast for a role in the short film “In the Dark.” She has been cast as the lead in multiple films, and has created music for films as well; one of those being a theme song for a short series, “Blood Sisters.”

Now, Jen Ash is releasing her most personal track to date. “No Lover Lover” is a cathartic song for Jen, tackling an issue that is sure to hit home with many.

“I’ve experienced a very toxic relationship, and I did not realize it,” she said. The wake-up call was when he did not show up at my first show, nor was he supportive of my art, being jealous of my creativity and not being enthusiastic about my success. He was trying to discourage me every step of the way. I let him go and honestly… I felt miserable. I really thought I couldn’t live without him, but I discovered that it was actually quite the opposite. The doors started to open for me as soon as he was gone. Relationships are sometimes distractions, and they take us on a path that is not ours to take, and we lose focus of what our true desires are.”
