Rising R&B star, Miala, delivers a very unique and creative visual for her hit single, “FNF.”
We get a glimpse into the posh universe that Miala calls home, all in the mist of being touch by her sultry vocals and majestic rhymes.
Whether down on earth, or in space, Miala refuses to deal with any type of f*ck n*gga, and with that we get a new anthem to remind us ladies of what we deserve when it comes to love.
Watch the official animated video for #FNF below, and listen to more music from Miala via SoundCloud.
Let’s get to know Miss Miala…
Who is Miala? Describe yourself & your artistry in 3 words.
“Miala is creative, unpredictable, and intelligent!”
You definitely have a different vibe, what inspires your individuality?
“I really just try to dig deep focus on true artistry, and creativity to deliver something beautiful when it comes to my music. It’s what I think is missing in the industry right now.”
You’re obviously not from here (earth) — how is life in outer space? By the way, we hope they make them all like you up there! [heart eyes]
“[lol!] Haha, they definitely do, did you see my alien friends in the FNF video? And what’s it like … hmmm you would have to see it to believe it :).”
What’s the inspiration behind your new hit, “FNF?”
“The inspiration was for me to be as far as possible from earth so I could be FNF, so what better place to go than outer space. And the best way to accomplish that with all the details was to animate the video. Which I’m very proud of!”
We love the concept for your animated video for #FNF — what other dope releases do you have in store for us in 2019?
I have sooo many dope visuals coming out I’m so eager to get them done to share them.
After earning his way on to the Spotify curated Hip-Hop Central playlist, Canadian based artist Myles Lloyd returns with a new single called, “Tell Me.” Hoping to duplicate a buzz that garnered attention from the who’s who of record labels, Myles Lloyd doubles back with “Tell Me,” a song that Myles describes as a “therapy song.” “One reason why I made this song is because of the weird vibes I’ve been getting because of this whole music thing. People that I used to be friends with are changing and turning on me because I distanced myself from a lot of them is very eye opening and new,” Myles Lloyd said. “I’m very strong on loyalty and respect so when I started getting otherwise from people that were so close to me, I felt like it was my calling to start fresh and start respecting myself and relying on myself to further my own future of being happy.” This track continues Myles’ tradition of working with his best friend frnchhmwrk who produced his last single “I Want It All” earning posts at Revolt, TheSource, HipHopDx, OnSmash, HipHopSince1987, ItsBizkit, AllHipHop and Respect-Mag where famed rap journalist Elliott Wilson is the Editor in Chief.
Alabama rapper Xzayvier has released a fire new joint titled “Numb”. This single is by far his best material to date. The honesty he conveys throughout his music will be heard directly on this record.
Produced by KOS, the trappy, melodic beat flows well with Xzayvier’s original bars. You will hear him mentioning things like “popping perkies” and drinking to numb the pain caused by previous and current hardships.
His story telling ability is what is most impressive. After taking a listen to “Numb” you will have a better understanding of how raw and ready for the world Xzayvier is.

Atlanta duo the TaylorGirlz, have released a sensual, new record called “LateNightSnack”. This single will appear on their highly anticipated NOCAP EP that is geared to be released next month.

Atlanta truly has winners with this pair. Press play below to stream the TaylorGirlz latest single “Late Night Snack”.
Recently, I had the pleasure to get to know rising Atlanta, Georgia artist, Chosen Fate. We’re starting to see a new wave of lyrically conscious rappers, and Chosen Fate is here to make hip-hop music his stomping ground and prove that he’s not just going to be a one hit wonder, but an artist who can hopefully inspire others to be themselves in this generation of pretentious posers.
Who is Chosen Fate…? Though it seems pretty self-explanatory, what is the meaning behind the name? “Chosen Fate is James Stephens (lol)”
As a multi talented artist, we know that playing the piano is your secret weapon… does that mean you produce your own beats too? “Yes”
Who are you top 5 musical inspirations? Dead or alive. No specific order. “Stevie Wonder, James E. Stephens (Dad), Timberland, Pretty much everything I can get my hands on.”
Now, who is one person in the game right now that you just “have” to work with, and why? “I would say I would love to work with a few people that I feel are similar to me and that would be: J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Rapsody, and Logic. These artists have all made positive songs in a way that I have found amazing.”
For those who haven’t listened to your new project, Come By Here, — what are 3 words to describe it? “Inspiring, different, and educational.”
With that being said, what was the inspiration behind creating this project? What message are you trying to get across? “Well, Come By Here, is an album from the people’s perspective meant to motivate us to do something with our lives and also to paint a picture of how we deal with one another to motivate change. And I named it “Come By Here” to inspire people to be better and to learn to love each other no matter the color of their skin.”
What is it all for? Be honest. Some people are about this “music life” for the fame and fortune, essentially trying to make a career out of it, which is understandable; but some use music solely for a release, and whatever manifests from that is just more so a blessing… —What does being a music artist mean to you? “I love music and I believe that music is a tool to use for whatever you want to use it for whether it be good or bad and I choose to use it for good.”
What’s in store for Chosen Fate? What can we look forward to from you in 2019? “I don’t know wait and see!”
