"NEXT LEVEL" + "YOUNG GIRL" - RASHEED

NEW MUSIC: RASHEED - NEXT LEVEL + YOUNG GIRL (prod. KINGPIN)

Inline image 1
Rasheed is back, guys!!! Following the successful release of "Glow", sensational vocalist Rasheed is making a huge statement with two hit tracks. Having taken his time to understand the emotional intelligence of the fans and the nature of the market, Rasheed has dug deep to deliver on two brand new joints which are absolute beauties.

The first track, from the stables of Canbit music, "Next Level", is an intelligently knitted lyrical brilliance, inspiring, bar worthy and ear friendly; a club banger and a sure bet for top charts, if you work hard, you should "ball" hard too, self explanatory. Producers Kingpin and Maxxijay came together on this one to get this out, not a song that would fade any time soon.

The second of the delicious wonders, "Young Girl", as produced by the amazing Kingpin is Rasheed personified, a fusion of his sultry soft rock, suave soul rhythm and indigenous lyrical content on a dancehall instrumental; it's a story of a young man in love, with a shameless fear of losing out, offering sincere advise to his Coke bottle body lady, this Canbit goldmine went hard on this one with effortless guile. "Young Girl" is a song that will appeal to every mood, beyond the inviting voice of Rasheed and the expertise of the well mastered track.
