PREMIERE: Lorine Chia x J.KELR ft. Rome Castille & Michael Christmas “Crazy”

Blended Babies are best known for supplying beats to artists like Chance the Rapper, Kid Cudi, and Asher Roth. Last year the L.A.-based production duo collaborated with Cameroon-born electro-soul singer Lorine Chia—who has a decent list of collabs herself, ranging from Jeezy to The Game, Wiz Khalifa, and Chance—on a four-track EP. Now BB’s own J.P. (aka J.KELR) has working on a joint joint with Chia entitled Remedy, which is set for a June 28 release.
Today MASS APPEAL premieres a single from that project, “Crazy” featuring Rome Castille and Michael Christmas. “I appreciate Rome and Michael for getting on this record with us,” says Lorine. “Life inspired this song. It’s about the tests and trials people put you through during your passage to your own destiny.”

“The music industry can make you go crazy sometimes with all the opportunists and shady moves,” adds J KELR. “I just keep my head up and remind myself that I can do this music shit so I don’t go crazy.”

“Other people can be shady,” Lorine concurs, invoking Industry Rule #4080. “But through it all, you gotta swag surf through that bih and get yours.” Check the sounds below.
