Premiere: EVRYWHR Marvels At A Mother's Strength And Beauty On "Mother To Be"

VIBE premieres EVRYWHR's new track, "Mother To Be." 

Singer-songwriter EVRYWHR is showing that it's cool to love and celebrate our mothers. The artist debuted his single "Mother To Be" in honor of the strength and beauty of a woman's ability to create life.

Leading into the hook by the strumming of guitar strings, the soothing ballad sounds like a tribute to Shannon, the mother of his son Zion. "Good morning, Mother to be / You're stronger than you think / And on the days that you get weak, just lean on me / I'll be there," he sings with melodic vocals somewhat resembling Miguel's. The single concludes with a spoken word illustrating the pains and joys of a woman's pregnancy.

"'Mother To Be' communicates compassion, love and support to a woman as she journeys through one of the most adversity filled, yet rewarding times of her life," he said in a statement. "I could never begin to understand the strength of women until I was given the opportunity to witness the mirror of my soul take on carrying our son. This song is a gift from my heart that says, 'I understand that I will never truly understand, but I am here for you.'"

"Mother to Be" comes from the singer's forthcoming Shannon EP, which was named after the mother of his child. Prior to the single's release, EVRYWHR shared an image of his lady on Instagram on Sunday (Feb. 19). "She is #Woman. She is #Strength. She is #Love permeating like sweet aromas through a meadow of flowers, and I am in awe of her beauty. I was blessed to be a part of her journey as she carried Zion, and each day I learn to better appreciate all that she's had to be," he captioned the pic.

"With every trial is a testimony!" Tommie tells VIBE. "Here is mine."

The video, directed by illHD and Tommie herself, splits between its own storyline and vintage footage of her life.

“This is/was my real life! Beyond the lights. I wanted to share with the people the back story, my whole truth," Tommie said. "In doing so I hope to motivate others struggling with their truth to not be afraid and be inspired to not give up!”

Emotional Orange Releases Callings Of Love On "Corners Of My Mind"

Mysterious duo Emotional Oranges are taking a reflective route with "Corners Of My Mind," a gentle ode to an old love.

The track which can be found on the duo's SoundCloud page was inspired by their friend who went through a bad breakup. It seems to be the fitting track towards the end of a coming of age romance where the couple goes their separate ways. In an email to VIBE, the faceless group explained how love was the seed that planted the smooth track.

"I watched a close friend go through an awful heartbreak recently," they said. "This song was birthed by me attempting to reflect on how I would have reacted had it happened to me. The irony is as he was losing love, I was finding new love. It made the whole process of writing it all quite painful."

The LA-based pair croons about a painful love life on the soft pop beat. "It was yesterday/You couldn't look me in my eyes, and then/There was nothing more that I could say/I thought what we had was unbreakable/Guess I was wrong/Opened it up, gave you my all/I know it seemed like you weren't enough/Try to forget, peace and reset/But I can't forgive you no more." 

Emotional Oranges have released just a few singles, including the bouncy bop "Motion" and "Personal" that gained fanfare online.

According to the musical pair's Twitter page, fans can expect a new EP, as well as a tour announcement and "cute merch" following "Corners Of My Mind."

Premiere: Nolan The Ninja and Chuck Inglish Give Their '2 Cents'

Two of the best from Midwest drop some lo-fi goodness as Nolan The Ninja calls on The Cool Kids' Chuck Inglish for the new song "2 Cents." On the second single from Nolan's upcoming Mello Music Group debut album Sportee, Nolan and the Cool Kids co-founder trade rhymes over a gritty soundbed by 5yoT. "I'm one of a kind, the type you never find, rarity breeds, follow my seed," Nolan spits, part of a relentless verse he uses to close out the record.

“Chuck and I met months ago and we chopped it up and eventually ended up in the studio,” Nolan told VIBE. “I was just going through joints I had & he told me to keep '2 Cents' rolling. He wrote to it & we knocked it out. I remember him calling it some ‘futuristic Wu shit.”

Detroit has some of the best rappers in the world, and Nolan the Ninja earned his stripes in the city's rap scene for years before signing a deal with Mello Music Group this fall. Sportee will include appearances by Chuck Inglish, T3 (Slum Village), Jaye Prime, Boog Brown & Charlie Smarts of Kooley High. Pre-order your copy, and listen to "2 Cents" below.
