When the old-school golden era of rap collides with soul, trap and reggae, you get Black Lion. We first covered the duo back in January when we posted their debut project, Free Association.
In a creative twist, the EP was distributed as a stunning audio-visual production. Each song was accompanied by a lyric video that captured its message perfectly. The list of collaborators includes Grammy-nominated production juggernaut Tone Mason, and soulful Toronto R&B artist Ray Robinson.
Their sound is undeniably versatile and is rooted in an awareness of relevant current, historical, and emerging global themes and trends, as well as an appreciation for the lighter moments in life.
“Right Somebody” is the second single that Black Lion has released this year. Just in time for the summer, it is a remix from last year’s EP that includes an improved production and new elements that give it a fresh sound.
One listen to this bumping track will have people falling in love on the dance floor. The song has a special meaning from the heart of Black Lion architect Rich Lindo.
Having just recently married the love of his life, Rich dedicates “Right Somebody” to his wife as “she deserves nothing less than the best.”
The Lindo brothers share and deliver that sentiment of love and treating your significant other in the best way possible. People all over the world can relate to this. With its revamped beat, soothing combination of hip-hop and reggae style, and melodious hook in the chorus, “Right Somebody” will have the bodies of listeners moving and grooving through the summer of 2019.
