Tuesday are always tricky especially when we do not want to get out of bed! To relax and motivate yourself, listen and watch the music video of this song, here. I can’t stop listening to it!
Angel says,“I feel like French and Davido bring the track to an even wider audience. We all come from different cultures, me from London, French from NY and Davido from Nigeria with the Afro beat movement. It was just so organic to blend all of these sounds together. You see the track In a new light, and now the whole world hears the track With a new perspective. The original was about appreciating the blessings and now it’s about celebrating our blessings.”
Last summer, Angel announced his signing to Mark Pitts’ByStorm Entertainment/RCA Records and released the original “Blessings” track and video which was Angel’s first U.S. based release. The video premiered exclusively on Complex and has garnered over 8M video views and streams combined.
A multi-hyphenate talent whose music seamlessly moves between genres. Angel has already been one of Britain’s best-kept secrets for a minute. He was raised in West London where he developed a love for music at a young age. His first mixtape Patience Is A Virtue displays his uncanny merge of island sounds and the walking-on-air vibes of American R&B and hip-hop, a juxtaposition core to his upbringing and musical experience. In 2012, his single “Wonderful” peaked at #9 on the UK Singles Chart and topped the UK R&B Chart. Angel co-wrote on Roll Deep’s chart-topping “Green Light” and collaborated with fellow UK leading lights like Wiley and Giggs on the mixtape 7 Minutes Before Time. In 2018 we saw the release of his sophomore record Woman, which took his predilection for R&B further than ever before.
About French Montana:
Some artists blur genres, but multi-platinum selling artist French Montana blurs borders. His inimitable fusion of classic East Coast rhymes, wavy pop swagger, and international ambition elevated him to the forefront of the game on a global scale. French Montana ascended into superstar status in 2017 with his smash “UNFORGETTABLE” [feat. Swae Lee]”, which cemented him in the “Billion Club” for streaming and earned a quintuple-platinum certification from the RIAA. In fall 2018, French released certified platinum single, “No Stylist” [feat. Drake], which is the first single off his upcoming album, MONTANA. The following year, he released the second single off MONTANA, “Slide” [feat. BLUEFACE & Lil TJay], which has garnered over 2.5 billion streams. In September 2019, he debuted his smash hit, “Writing On The Wall” [feat. Post Malone, Cardi B & Rvssian].
