LA-based recording artist, musician and designer, Duckwrth, has released his new project, SG8*, out now. The project is aptly named after the SuperGood brand he created and the evolution to his 2020 album of the same name. Continuing the lineage of soul and diving deeper into melodic R&B, the project is layered with vocals, however this standout track focuses on Duckwrth’s bars serving as an anthem for escapism. “4K” is available on all streaming platforms.
In celebration of the release of the newest video, Duckwrth hosted a series of screenings on Tuesday, August 24th at Braindead Studios in Los Angeles.
The visual highlights the track’s triumphant tone of escapism, emphasizing the freedom of leaving quarantine and flocking to the tropics. Shot in Pink Sands, Bahamas, the music video’s comedic timing breaks the fourth wall to showcase the realities of vacationing in the age of social media and highlight reels. “4K” is a vibe, an illuminating reality check, and most definitely a movie.
In a larger sense, SG8* is an ode to post-pandemic joy and rising above the inherent anxiety associated with the era. The project also features additional production by WaveIQ (Jaden Smith, Goldlink) and Loshendrix (SZA, Brent Faiyaz, Kehlani).
He recently collaborated with Cordae in their track “Settle the Score,” featured in the new movie and soundtrack Space Jam: A New Legacy. His US tour kicking off in September has sold-out dates in Los Angeles, New York, Atlanta, Boston, Oakland, and Chicago. Additionally, he has appeared in campaigns for Vans and the recent Yara Shahidi x Adidas Collaboration. In March, Duckwrth’s first NPR Tiny Desk performance premiered his first single off the EP “Make U Go,” which channeled his inner Marvin Gaye.
