Watch: Elijah Blake – ‘XOX (Lyric Video)’

Published: Saturday 26th Jan 2013 by David

As the world of Pop falls deeper into 2013, it’s clear to see that this year will provide no shortage of hotly anticipated music.

Of course, there’s Beyonce‘s fifth studio album, Justin Timberlake‘s third LP and Britney Spears‘ eighth, and now- in serving as one of the year’s newcomers- Elijah Blake readies the release of his debut effort, following the launch of ‘Bijoux 22‘ last year.

So, as to oil his machine before setting its wheels in motion, he releases the lyric video for his single ‘XOX’, featuring ‘Electric Circus‘ Rapper Common.

Enjoy below…


The video’s arrival came days before Marsha Ambrosius’Cold War’– which he penned alongside Diplo– saw its own video unveiled here, and weeks after he scored multiple Grammy nominations for his work on Usher‘s Hot 100 smash ‘Climax’ and Rihanna‘s #1 album, ‘Unapologetic‘.

    Whorita has good taste.

      Why are the Navi always coming for Rita?

    • RitasLipstick January 26, 2013

      Oh f*** off. That was a stupid rumour.

    • DemiQueenvato January 26, 2013

      Leave Reah alone.

    • TurntUp4Cici January 26, 2013

      He gave Ryvita the D?

    Better than Miguel. Worse Than Drake.

    • CHUDDS January 26, 2013

      I like him, but he isn’t as innovative as Miguel. Elijah is a singer. Drake isn’t.

    • OVOForever January 26, 2013

      I hear that, but Miguel’s voice is much better, it’s just that his music isn’t as good as E’s.

    • KDreamer (Miguel Hit It) January 26, 2013

      You b****** are confused. Miguel and Elijah are like apples and oranges. The one Elijah should be worried about is Francine because they sound so alike. I like him but he’ll never be on Mig’s level.

      • CHUDDS January 26, 2013

        Right Miguel is more alternative R&B, and Elijah is more R&B with a twist, I guess? But his music is catchier than Franks, and he’s a better vocalist. So Elijah > Frank IN MY OPINION!

    I think i would hit it.

  4. LLASAP January 26, 2013

    This is one of the only cats i can listen to without feeling some kind of way. Most of these randb n***** stay on some fake bravado s*** but I like the understated flow Drizzy and this one gives off. Not conceited.

  5. CHUDDS January 26, 2013

    I like Elijah. He has an awesome voice and great music. Where can I download his mixtape?

  6. AzealiaBankable January 26, 2013

    You know this guy is gonna be big if TGJ is giving him articles BEFORE he drops his first single. Kiii, the only it boys they cover are Aubriana, Brunetta, Asapandra and Neyomina.

  7. LOOH January 26, 2013

    Didn’t want to get involved in the debate above so i’ll just say this. Miguel has his own thing, Bruno has his own thing, Drake has his own thing and Frank has his own thing and Elijah has his too. I’m just happy that we’re in place that the competition between the new boys is based on their talent and music and not their wigs and singles charts like it is with the girls.

  8. NOBITCHASSNESS January 26, 2013

    Yes Elijah! Great talent.

  9. hellioss January 26, 2013

    Some Weeknd’s vibes as well to add to what you guys said

  10. ENOUGH ONIKA (0 GRAMMY NOMS…) January 26, 2013

    I think his style is similar to Miguel’s style in All I Want Is You. His falsetto is also similar to Migurl’s and Franks. His style barely touches Franks in
    Nostalgia Ultra. his lyrical ability is typical to modern
    R&B. His production is so wavy, you could drown in it.
