Competition is fierce in showbiz, especially when two siblings pursue careers in similar genres. There isn’t always enough room for everyone to succeed. And though both may have their own unique talent and style, one sibling is likely to outshine the other.
Some artists grow resentful while others celebrate their sibling’s stardom and carve their own lane—(Hey Solange).
Rapper, singer, and songwriter, Illa J, still honors his late brother, J Dilla‘s prolific legacy. But, he’s focused on honing the career he’s built on his own.
After appearing on various posthumous projects with the deceased Hip-Hop producer and releasing various well-received solo albums, J channels the classic Detroit-bred Motown sound on “Home.”
Billed as the title song to his upcoming album, the single features J singing in a raspy falsetto matched with soulful production from Los Angeles-based producer, Calvin Valentine.
Additional vocals by newcomer, Danielle Henderson beautifully complements the track as J showcases stellar vocals. The upcoming album was recorded in North Hollywood within six days; all other tracks on the new project also feature production by Valentine.
Home is slated for release on Friday, June 30, via Jakarta Records and is currently available for preorder on iTunes. Get into the new single below and stay tuned for more dope music from Illa J right here on RESPECT.
