Responsible for penning Keyshia Cole‘s ‘Enough Of No Love‘, Def Jam’s Elijah Blake is fast becoming one of the label’s more promising acts.
Now, before the release of his Rick Ross assisted debut single, the entertainer has received a glowing endorsement from NERD’s Pharell Williams and ‘Channel Orange’ mastermind Frank Ocean.
An endorsement, immortalized in an exclusive (and ‘interesting’) clip sent to That Grape Juice, awaiting you below…
Hit the 1.44 mark to see Ocean hearing Blake’s ‘Presidential’ for the first time:
If Elijah’s name seems familiar, it may be because he is one of the many writers signed onto pen Rihanna’s seventh studio LP- joining the vocalist for sessions in London last month.
Be sure to look out for more of his work on Keyshia Cole‘s ‘Woman To Woman‘, Alicia Keys’ forthcoming LP and quite interestingly Ciara‘s ‘One Woman Army’.
