Elijah Blake & Diplo Announce Collaborative EP

Published: Wednesday 14th Aug 2013 by David


As Hip Hop continues to ‘deal’ with the drama that is Kendrick Lamar‘s KONY claim, fans of the genre will be pleased to learn of good news today.

The kind of news, that involves a collaborative EP crafted by Elijah Blake and ‘Paper Planes’ purveyor, Diplo.

Responsible for the hit above, Diplo will join Blake to craft ‘Bijoux 23′, the follow up EP to the latter’s 2012 release, ‘Bijoux 22‘.

Set to be executive produced by NO I.D, ‘23′ will precede the release of Elijah’s debut album, ‘Songs About Melody‘ which is set to drop via Island Def Jam in the coming months, also believed to feature Diplo– whom he joined to craft Usher’s ‘Climax’.

 As one of the only ‘newbies’ whose streaming numbers live up to their hype, we’re stoked that Elijah’s given himself more time to roll out ‘Melody‘, no doubt using ’23’ to secure his standing on his genre’s territory.

Joining Rihanna in becoming the apple of Roc Nation‘s eye, the numbers pulled in by ’22’ (over 1 million streams/downloads to be exact) see him prove that the interest in his work is very real, making him the right campaign away from turning those streams into paid sales.

Can he do it? Only time will tell.

Until then, join us as we vibe out to the tracks below…

  5. SummertimeSadness August 14, 2013

    I prefer his softer songs to the Xox one. He’s so beautiful.

  6. TurntUp4Cici August 14, 2013

  7. Woman2Woman August 14, 2013

  9. artPOOP August 14, 2013

    OMG FINALLY! News about Elijah Blake, the only artist that I look for on tgj! -said no one ever….

    • RoyalNavi August 14, 2013

      Your shade was cancelled when you saw the thread, clicked on it and commented. Clearly you care.

      • artPOOP August 14, 2013

        yup- i care about all flops, including the flop you stan for… seedy ho- you must be Elijah coming for me on your TGJ paid advertising. take a seat my dear, irrelevance is inevitable for you.

  10. AnonSinger August 14, 2013

    Typical s***!
    It’s so clear to see that TGJ have been paid to get the ball rolling for him so it seems like he came up naturally when his label MAKE SURE he blows up. Its f***** up how we got so many good singers out there but these labels be picking one and be paying websites like this to make it seem like they the only ones doing it.

    • artPOOP August 14, 2013

      very true, i bet this post will be erased from TGJ’s paid advertisement since Sam lives for silencing her readers… that seedy queen

  11. LLA$AP August 14, 2013

    Ayyeeee Eli!

  12. FAF August 14, 2013

    Funny how its always the same people saying the same stuff on Elijah Blake posts hmmmm

    • TurntUp4Cici August 14, 2013

      It’s because his fan base on here is small sis.

  13. OvoBarbie August 14, 2013

    Best news I got all day.

  14. HausMuthaAdele August 14, 2013

    This is very interesting, when does it come out?

  15. LaLopez August 14, 2013

    They said he’s working on Jen’s new album on beyond beautiful.

    • GagitaMaraj August 14, 2013

      Is it true? Because he’s on Kylie’s too.

      • LaLopez August 14, 2013

        That’s what my friend on there said but I don’t know.

  16. WCW4lIFE August 14, 2013

    Pause and all that but the n**** got a nice look on him.

  17. AzaleanArmy August 14, 2013

    S***. As. Phuck.

  18. channel_ROMAN August 14, 2013

    I never heard an Elijah Blake song other than his feature on Keyshia Cole’s Wonder Land. He got a good voice. I keep getting him mixed up with Luke James.

  19. Mark111 August 14, 2013

    Ha! I like how they photoshopped his double chin.

    • NowUSeeMe August 14, 2013

      Your mom’s double chin though.

      • Mark111 August 14, 2013

        Yea you’re gonna have to try harder than that.

  20. Exposed August 14, 2013

    Something seems fishy to me.
    Isn’t it funny that the two people that TGJ have made a such a big effort to support are both at RN.
    First it was Rita now it’s Elijah. Very telling indeed.

    • SpecialDeliverance August 14, 2013

      And how do you explain Miguel? He’s not on Roc.

  21. MyAiko August 14, 2013

    Yall didn’t even say when it’s out? You know how much I love him so yall need to do better.

  22. ApplauseForMe August 14, 2013

    I’m trying to behave myself so I won’t say what I want Elijah to do to me. All Imma say is that I like his voice and songs.

  23. Lovebird (Roar – PRISM – 10.22.13)) August 14, 2013

    He is just so hot, purely perfect in every way.
