Premiere: Jazzy Amra's "Single Single" Is A Gentle Reminder Of Liberated Self-Love

Some of the biggest misconceptions about single women have been slashed thanks to Jazzy Amra's poignant new musical offering, "Single Single."

The Bronx songbird flexes her best nayhoos with lyrical gems about refusing to settle for anything less than the best. What makes the track so addicting is her subtle but demanding message about self-love while enjoying the thrills in life like chasing her dreams, enjoying a cup of yak or two and understanding her self-worth.

"Some misconceptions behind single women of color are that we’re single because we lack something or couldn’t hold the relationship up because of our perceived attitude," she tells VIBE about creating "Single, Single." "Most of the time we’re single because we want to be and nothing more."

Fateful truths also dropped in Jazzy's lap after a breakup. "The biggest lesson I learned about myself while being single is that life is not over after a breakup," she said. "I honestly thought I wouldn’t be the same but it was the total opposite. I think I became a better person being alone."

A protege of Wyclef Jean, Jazzy's music is more than self-reflective. The single-songwriter has presented her many layers in good form, leading to big co-signs from Pharrell Williams and performances on NPR's Tiny Desk and the Steve Harvey Show. Earlier this year, the Bronx native dropped her self-titled EP, Amra.

"Single, Single" has the makings of blissful R&B hit with it's ode to self-love. As for a remix? Jazzy is looking to drive to boat with a Houston hot girl. "I would have to go with Megan Thee Stallion [for the remix,]" she said. "She’s a hot girl and is about women doing their thing independently."

Dolly Parton Toys With Hopping On Next 'Old Town Road' Remix

Lil Nas X is not letting “Old Town Road” ever get old. The 20-year-old Atlanta native continues to add more and more musicians to various remixes of the record-breaking song.

Last week, he enlisted Young Thug and “The Yodeling Kid” Mason Ramsey, and it looks like another country music legend is looking to hop on another version of the track.

“Y’all think i can get dolly parton and megan thee stallion on a old town road remix?” Lil Nas X asked his millions of Twitter followers at the top of the week (Jul. 15). The “9 To 5” songstress responded to the artist’s inquiry yesterday (Jul. 18) on Twitter with a horse and a unicorn emoji. Megan has not responded to the inquiry... that we know of.

Billy Ray Cyrus– the father of Parton’s goddaughter Miley– hopped on the original remix with Lil Nas X, and performed the song with him at events such as Summer Jam and the 2019 BET Awards.

The track is currently the third longest-running No. 1 hit in the history of American popular music, right behind “One Sweet Day” By Boyz II Men and Mariah Carey, and Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber’s “Despacito.”

Premiere: Motivation And Loyalty Reign On euro’s Two Pack, “Never Fold/Day Ones”

Young Money alum euro gives fans a two for one special with the release of his latest singles, “Never Fold" and "Day Ones.”

The song actually splits into two with “Never Fold” serving fans who are a sucker for lyrical mastery and "Day Ones" providing the right amount of victorious thunder and bravado.

"Never Fold" bloomed out of sheer pride and euro’s determination to throw lyrical jabs at anyone coming his way.

“My brother got a hold of the beat from Ayo the producer and he wanted me to record over it,” euro tells VIBE. “He called me out after I passed on the beat due to writer’s block. At that moment, I had to prove a point and that’s what came out of it.”

As for “Day Ones,” the tune shows how euro is rooted in more ways than one. "The motivation behind "Day Ones" is staying true on this journey, never selling out," he explains. "There have been many times we’ve had opportunities to take the easy way, but we have our minds made up to do this our way - the right way, for our people, with our people."

The tracks will be apart of euro's forthcoming album, Don’t Expect Nothing, to be released August 16th. The rapper has resided under the radar but still managed to snag big co-signs from the likes of Lil Wayne and Drake.

Enjoy the tracks below.
