Allan Kingdom took to Twitter last week to announce the release of a new music video, as well as the release of a new project dubbed Lines. Directed by Cole Bennett of Chicago based Lyrical Lemonade, the colorful visual fits the record well. The green screen approach isn’t always effective, but Bennett does a good job of keeping things fresh. Allan’s versatility shines bright, his prowess with auto-tune has translated into songs with a lot of depth. This one could easily hit air-waves just in time for the summer. Check out the video for “Know About It” above and keep an eye out for Lines April 7th.

The last couple of weeks have been insane for new music in the Twin Cities. Of the many releases, Drelli’s new track “Exotic” takes the cake as Heat of The Week. Produced by Dro & Kwey, the record’s lush, sunny instrumental signals the warmer months ahead. Drelli and Allan both seem right at home on a record that strengthens both of their sounds, a sure winner for summer parties. We’ve been behind Drelli for awhile now so it’s definitely awesome to see the kid rising through the ranks. “Exotic” is a rooftop, boat life, late night lake chillin banger; hopefully this is just the beginning. Check out “Exotic” above and stay tuned for more from Drelli.
