Canadian hip-pop/R&B artist JT Soul uncorks a smooth, seductive number with Rosé, his 2nd taster before the arrival of his debut EP later this fall. The single flowed from ODDIO Ent. in early October and it showcases JT Soul’s minimalistic take on melodies and lyrics that still releases an assured and heady bouquet.
Gianni Rivera is the Montreal native behind the moniker JT Soul and he’s drunk deeply from the musical well ever since high school where he met fellow rapper Tris Thomas. They formed the rap act Unofficial Sovereign and Rivera learned the ropes of the music business at an early age.
Now, just out of high school, and as JT Soul, the artist is making a name for himself for his soulful harmonies and fresh raps, working with his beats producer Jei Bandit for ODDIO Entertainment. Soul’s vocal versatility is captivating as he smoothly moves from lightly autotuned R&B crooning to heavier raps with ease.
Lead single Need Your Love was a nocturnal-vibed, melancholic track and now Soul is back with Rosé, a plush, low-key jam where Soul’s velvety vocals go down easy amid the hypnotic pull of hushed, wavering synths, brightly ticking percussion, and plunked, globular beats. Rosé is a flavorful down-tempo tune to be savored whether in the late hours at the club or just lounging around the bedroom.
