Good music alert!
As his following continues to rise with every passing day, Def Jam’s Elijah Blake ignites the fire behind his debut album today…launching a brand spanking new single set to hit iTunes on March 3rd.
Named ‘Sing For Me’, the upbeat number comes armed with killer verses from Rick Ross and ‘Robin Hood’ hit-maker The Game, forging a collaboration set to take R&B/Hip Hop by storm once it impacts radio!
Why we’re putting out a ‘good music alert’ on this one? Well, it simply is that…good- marking yet another cut which sees Blake pen an ‘Urban’ effort palatable enough for Pop audiences, without losing the edge that’s given his sound such a clear point of difference.
Ready to ‘Sing’?

Bashed and belittled by those who weren’t impressed by its ‘R-rated’ nature, Rihanna‘s ‘Pour It Up‘ made quite the impact upon its October 2013 arrival, for reasons both good and bad.
The good? The push it gave supporting album ‘Unapologetic’ on a sales front, after surpassing sales of 1 million units in the US itself. The bad? Criticism from fans of DanceHall staples Lady Saw and Patra, who took aim at the star’s alleged ‘borrowing’ of their work and trademark styles.
Today, the good finds itself outweighing the bad as the clip reaches a monumental milestone, and as the performer joins management company Roc Nation in celebrating the release of new music from collaborator Elijah Blake!

The genius that is Elijah Blake unleashes a fresh hit into the atmosphere today, responsible for penning Flo Rida‘s brand new jam ‘Rear View.’
Featuring Hip Hop heartthrob August Alsina, the number sees Rida hop into bed with ‘Urban’ and deliver a jam that’s infectious enough to be authentically ‘Flo’ while marking a bold and exciting move towards more ‘flavoursome’ territory.

One year after joining forces to pen the smash hit, Usher‘s ‘Climax’ was brought to life once again recently, when Elijah Blake performed it for fans during his set at the ‘EOS Presents’ tour.
Tributing ‘The Faculty’ star after soaring with his very own ‘Birdz‘, Blake’s rendition of the cut came armed with fresh runs and a slightly reworked arrangement that gave us no choice but to hope it becomes a staple in the singer’s live sets.

December 12th 2013. Remember this date.
For, on this day- following the release of his brand new number ‘Towers of Tokyo‘- That Grape Juice predicts that Elijah Blake will become the one most celebrated R&B males in Pop history.
A little ambitious? Not really.
For, if the aforementioned ‘Tokyo’ is anything to go by, the 23 year old singer/songwriter is on course to becoming quite the force in both his genre and the industry at large, enlisting Jack Splash to produce a cut that screams ‘hit.’
Not sure why we’re so excited?
