Multi-platinum producer Drumma Boy is expanding his Drum Squad brand with some noteworth new talent, including songwriter Qumontae. This week, the young Virginia native delivers the official visual for his first Drum Squad single “To Myself”, produced by SezOnTheBeat and directed by Ceejayyfilms.
“I don’t want to just make music, I want to make conversation,” Qumontae expressed upon premiering the video this week. “I want people to feel feelings that were never there – I want you to miss someone you don’t even know,”
Drumma Boy is a true believer in Qumontae’s abilities, and assures music lovers that big things are brewing. “When I met Qumontae and heard his music, I knew he had something special. He has a clear vision of what he wants and executes it. One of the most difficult things to do is transfer an emotion into a great song. He does that well with beat selection, clear hook and melody, with dope story and concept delivery. I’m looking forward to building a solid foundation here at Drum Squad.”
Watch “To Myself” below, and look out for Qumontae’s official project coming soon!

Completely revamping his sound and following his true path, R&B singer G.Vani returns with a collaborative record featuring Jorge Milliano dubbed “All Night.”
“I took a little hiatus from being an artist and focused more on the songwriting route, but after some time I realized I was sitting on a bunch of dope records. Rather then let it go to waste I decided to put together a project while also rebranding myself with a name change. I looked at my strong points and felt that creating more R&B records was the best path going forward.” G.Vani explained.
This crossover record has appeal across the board with spicy Summer vibes that will get dance floors moving from Boston to the Caribbean and back again.
“This record is for East Boston and Dorchester, and everyone in between. The Latin culture is heavy out here in Massachusetts from Puerto Ricans to Dominicans, Colombians to Mexicans and Central Americans.”
Combining tropical sounds with Latin two step rhythms and exotic lyrics G.Vani and Jorge Milliano prove they have the chops to croon with the best of them targeting the rapidly growing Latin market on radio.
“I basically linked up with a long time friend of mine who already produced records for several major Latin artist in the game and we decided to rework an old song of mine. He took the vocals and put together a fresh new vibe. The end result was a single that I think has the potential to make it to radio and beyond,” G.Vani said.
“We wanted to create an island vibe but with that Top 40 sound, dedicated to the females letting them know we gonna do it All Night whether it’s dancing, making love or simply vibing out. This song is about love, having fun and making people dance.”
Accompanying the single, G.Vani and Jorge Milliano have created a lyric video for “All Night” that is chock-full of tropical vibes and visual effects.
“The song incorporates my Puerto Rican roots and with the Latin Trap genre booming right now I think it was the perfect time to share with the world that side of me. There’s alot of artist trying to crossover and I think with my writing abilities and melodic sound I have what it takes to take full advantage of that wave. With that being said this is actually the first record where the audience gets to hear me speak Spanish,” G.Vani explained.
Going forward G.Vani has a listening session and performance planned for his closest friends, and local taste makers, while he also has plans for meet and greets at clothing stores across the area. Look out for the release of his next project Based On Her set to debut later this year.

Recently NYC based rapper P-80 delivered his new single “For You” Ft. Selina Carrera. The single can be found on P-80’s upcoming project Idle thoughts and is produced by Grammy Award Winning producer Omen.
“My music is a representation of the life I live. I started rapping when I was eleven. I grew up listening to mostly house music and classic soul. The only rap I heard was on the radio and I wasn’t really into it until Biggie died, then my attention gravitated to it,” P-80 explained.
Adorning a green hoodie and a stoic face on the album art, this song’s art speaks to the depth with which love can go.
“I wrote For You because I needed a record for the ladies on my project. I needed somebody to sing the hook” P-80 recalled. “Omen introduced me to Selina Carrera and we made heat.”
On the hook Selina Carrera sings, “Ride for me and I’ll ride for you, and no I in we take your time with me / Oh babe, I’m ready for you, only for you / If you hold me then I’ll fly with you / Don’t you lie to me and I won’t lie to you / Oh babe I’m here for you”
While there are host of comparisons for both of the artists on this track, you can see for yourself as P-80 flips this track for the ladies in a way the homies can appreciate as Omen’s magical keys sprinkle over the track.
“I thought music was magic when I was younger… like you had to be chosen by God to do it. Before I knew what a studio was or writing rhymes was of course. Then in junior high, one of my classmates brought his rap book to school. It inspired me to start writing and I ain’t stop yet,” he added.
