TGJ Freshly Squeezed Week: Introducing…Shawn “EROCK” Sutton

shawn sutton erock thatgrapejuice TGJ Freshly Squeezed Week: Introducing...Shawn EROCK Sutton

Over the last seven years, That Grape Juice has established itself as one of the net’s most renowned sources for Urban Pop music. Indeed, it’s become trademark for us to shine light on artists – both known and on the rise. This week sees us spotlight the latter, as we kick off the first ever Freshly Squeezed Week.

Each day of this week has seen us introduce a talented new name and today sees us conclude with rapper…Shawn “EROCK” Sutton!

Though new on the music scene, the Brooklyn bred talent is no stranger to the spotlight. Indeed, his striking look caught the eye of many a modelling agent – who went on to book him in campaigns for the likes of Givenchy, Ted Baker, and most recently Rihanna‘s River Island clothing line.

What’s more, he’s starred in music videos by both Kelly Rowland (‘Motivation’ and ‘Ice’) and Beyonce (‘Superpower’).

However, standing beside stars has only motivated EROCK to intensify the brightness of his own. As such, he’s pressing on full-fledged with his foray into the world of Hip-Hop.

Odd to some (see: model-turned-MC), rapping is by no means a new phenomena for the lyricist – who’s been rhyming since he was 16-years-old.

Keen to share his calling with the masses, EROCK serves up ‘The Runner’ as his debut effort. Flavorsome, yet hard-hitting, take a listen below…

Snippet: Ariana Grande – ‘Break Your Heart Right Back’

1 ariana grande break your heart thatgrapejuice Snippet: Ariana Grande   Break Your Heart Right Back

Ariana Grande has titled her new album ‘My Everything’ and it appears the inspiration must have been the iTunes charts. Because, as at writing, the singer has three songs in the top ten of the US tally and a fourth sitting just outside at #11.

The 21-year-old’s dominance serves as quite the coup for the LP, which hits stores on August 25th and has thus far spawned hits ‘Problem’, ‘Break Free’, and most recently ‘Best Mistake’.

Continuing her tried and tested previewing of the project, Grande took to Instagram moments ago to give fans a sneak peek at another new song. This time it’s ‘Break Your Heart Right Back’, which she says was inspired by an ex-boyfriend she “99%” believes cheated on her with another guy.
