Blurring the lines between hip hop and R&B while putting West London on the map is the uniquely talented Ember Phoenix. He was born in Trinidad but grew up in the UK and his culturally diverse background is somewhat reflected in his eclectic musical style. He’s not a traditional crooner and he is not a fully-fledged lyricist, although he’s slick with the metaphors. Chance the Rapper and Bryson Tiller fans will appreciate where Ember is going when they hear the new single ‘Jodeci’. If you don’t quite get the sexy 90s R&B vibe from the trap-infused instrumental, look for it in between the lines of the flirty lyrics. “Said she wanna Netflix and chill but I have no Netflix and no chill/Come round and you know the deal…./ Overdosing on Jodeci so baby
“Said she wanna Netflix and chill but I have no Netflix and no chill/Come round and you know the deal…./ Overdosing on Jodeci so baby take hold of me.” He’s not for mincing his words; the only movie he and his lady will be watching is the one they’ll be making.
Ember Phoenix may just be starting out, but he already has high-profile backing. Endorsing the creativity, raw talent and versatility of Phoenix, Grammy-nominated producer Beast has co-signed the rap-singer. On December 16 ‘Jodeci’ will be officially released as a single on The Cold City, paving way for what promises to be one of the albums to look out for in 2017.
