Listen to it HERE.
Reflecting Bellion’s knack for merging genres, “Guillotine” stands at an intersection between alternative energy, folk poetry, R&B soul, and hip-hop grooves. Tempering an energetic strut with his vulnerable vocal delivery, the track instantly transfixes. It builds a gateway into his fascinating and cinematic sonic world where nothing is off limits. Fans can expect a video for the track to be released this Spring.
It’s also just one facet of The Human Condition. Bellion’s love for pop melody and thoughtful lyricism is palpable on the songs he has meticulously written, recorded, and self-produced for his debut album. The album also reflects Bellion’s love for hip-hop, especially innovative artist-musician-producers like J Dilla, Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, and Timbaland.
Bellion recently released a series of acoustic versions of fan favorite tracks to not only satiate the overwhelming demand from his fans for acoustic material but to build anticipation leading into his new album launch. Check out “All Time Low!”
Bellion’s voice can be strongly felt throughout pop music. He wrote and produced “Trumpets” for Jason Derulo and the GRAMMY® Award-winning 10x-platinum juggernaut “The Monster” for Eminem and Rihanna. Simultaneously, he attracted a dedicated and devoted audience of his own through a series of three free online albums and sold out tours, culminating on The Definition in 2014. Along the way, he provided vocals for Zedd’s “Beautiful Now” and B.o.B’s “Violence.” Following its release, “All Time Low” would capture #1 on Billboard‘s Emerging Artists Chart, while Spotify pegged him as an “Emerge Artist of 2014.” Now, his vision takes the spotlight on The Human Condition.
