These new cats ain’t playing with y’all on the releases. Coming out with a double dose of content, up-and-coming artist Price links with Dreamville’s Bas and the legend Wyclef for his bouncy bassline-fueled single “Selfish.”
Hearing the messages that permeate the track is where the greatness of this production lies. “Selfish is a song that was made to inspire people to take time out for themselves, better themselves while doing it, and love themselves in the process,” says Price. “We’re often looked at as selfish for doing these things for ourselves, so I wanted to shed light and present people with a different way of looking at it.”
Produced by Camper, known for tracks with Keyshia Cole (“Trust and Believe”), Tamar Braxton (“Love and War”), Mary J. Blige (“Self Love”) and executive producing Brandy’s newest album B7, the New Jersey native adds his magic to the groove oozing track. That strong foundation only added to the fact that Price could link with the bros in Bas and Wyclef. “Making ‘Selfish’ with Bas and Wyclef was a dream come true,” Price explains. “I got the chance to tour with Bas overseas and Wyclef was one of my biggest influences growing up. The creation process was amazing. Even through quarantine we were still able to come together and create something we all love and we hope the people will love it just as much as we do.”
Where “Selfish” describes taking time for self “Amistad” details the struggles of Black people and how easy it is for the systematic breakdown of our culture effects our generations past, present and future. Also produced by Camper, Price leans on personal experience and historical reverance to get this one out to the the people. “‘Amistad’ is a very non-traditional but powerful song. I want to give my fans new experiences every time I release new music. I have other songs on the album with big features but I felt it was important to come with ‘Amistad’ first because of the message it conveys.”
Be on the look out for Price’s sophomore album F.O.E.S which will be out on March 26th. Check his debut project C.L.R.D below.
