WITH VALENTINE'S DAY AROUND THE CORNER, love is in the air for Houston artists. This week's releases include Nepali-American singer Wangden Sherpa's debut project, Tangled In You, which tells a love story from its lustful beginning to its uninspiring end. Rapper Doeman Dyna salutes his idols on "El Idolo," and Tobe Nwigwe wants to keep the peace on his new track, "Unfollow Me."
Here's brand new music from Houston artists this week.
Wangden Sherpa, Tangled In You
Wangden Sherpa's debut album Tangled In You will take you through the lifespan of a love story -- from the exciting honeymoon phase through the faded romance and dull moments. The singer's creativity shines through on the project, as most of the songs began in cafes around Houston, using only a portable microphone and a USB electronic keyboard. Listen here.
Lil Keke, LGND
Throughout Lil Keke's music career, Houston has been the center of his universe. The rapper released his new album, LGND, filled with features from fellow Houston rap-OG's and production from Juicy J and Big K.R.I.T. At 16 tracks, the new project is a remembrance of his roots in Screwed Up Click and a declaration of his Houston pride. Listen here.
Doeman Dyna, "El Idolo"
Spanglish speaking emcee Doeman Dyna returns with his speedy flows and lyrical bars on "El Idolo." Dedicated to his late friend Vicente, the song fuses his love for trap rap with Latin music, as you'll hear him rapping over mariachi horns throughout a portion of the song. Listen here.
Tobe Nwigwe, "Unfollow Me"
As part of his series, Get Twisted Sundays, Tobe Nwigwe released "Unfollow Me," a gospel-infused track where he acknowledges internet trolls and encourages them to leave his page. The song is melodic and straightforward with lyrics like, "if you don't like what I say or what I do, for your sake and mine, unfollow me." Listen here.
