New Song: Elijah Blake – ‘XOX ( Ft Common)’

Published: Wednesday 12th Dec 2012 by David

Get familiar with ‘XOX’, R&B stunner released by Rihanna writer, Elijah Blake.

Lifted from his hotly anticipated ‘Bijoux 22‘ EP- out today– the mid tempo number features none other than Mr. ‘Finding Forever’ Common, one of the many contributors to the Jay Z backed mix tape.

So, after giving it a few spins today, we’ve already certified this is a smash.

Not sure why?

Get into it below…

See what we mean?

Armed with a discernible hook, vocals that already have many a R&B loyalist pledging their allegiance and a unique take on what might be called a common theme, ‘XOX‘ cements Blake’s status as his genre’s most promising ‘newbie’.

In saying that, though its follow up ‘Talk To Me’ will undoubtedly strike a stronger chord with Hip Hop audiences, ‘XOX’ serves as the perfect introduction for an act responsible for crafting two of the year’s greatest hits

    Ok this s*** goes in, but Common wasn’t needed in it tbh.

    • GagitaMaraj December 12, 2012

      He’s much better than Francine Rivers.

      • Pyramids2012 December 12, 2012

        Why’s everything got to be a competition?

    • HALF AMAZIN December 13, 2012

      Reminds me of “all I want is you” by Miguel. I love Common, but I agree, they weren’t a good pair over this beat

  10. MrMiyagi December 12, 2012

    He wrote NLA but put out this s***. Try again kid.

  11. Reece Davis December 12, 2012

    I like it, I’ll be checking for him

  12. QueenOfTheNavy December 12, 2012

    My little brother keeps talking about this guy like he’s the new Drake but I don’t see the comparison. He sounds like a cleaner version of Usher or a hybrid between Frank and Weeknd.

  13. Roberto December 12, 2012

    Vocal style and delivery reminds me of Bruno mars

  14. ƸӜƷ MC ƸӜƷ December 12, 2012

    Wow he really resembles Bruno Mars! Very talented and I like this song, I am not anticipating his new album.

  15. Ajm266 December 12, 2012

    I stan for him but not this song sorry

  16. dstrock December 13, 2012

    The songwriting and vocals are on point, but the production is dated. Part of what made Climax so successful was Diplo’s work on that song. I just feel like they could’ve put more than a generic R&B beat to this. Don’t get me wrong, I like the song and I’ll definitely be checking for him, but I think he could’ve come a little stronger.

    This sounds like “All I Want Is You” by Miguel
    Too much Autotune
    I’ll Pass
