Acclaimed modern pop sensation Ravyn Lenae has released her much-anticipated new EP. Crush is available now at all digital music retailers and streaming services.

Crush is Executive Produced by Steve Lacy (The Internet, Kendrick Lamar), who also joins Lenae on two of its five tracks including the vocal call-and-response, 4 Leaf Clover (track listing attached). The EP is highlighted by the sultry new single, Sticky – watch the video here.

Sticky is drawing wide-ranging critical acclamation, with Pitchfork declaring it Best New Track while raving, “Sticky is a steamy affair with a slinky R&B beat, but Lenae sounds like a playfully annoyed lover, glued into a relationship that‘s falling apart. She uses Lacy’s wide-open production – electric organ and psychedelic guitar strums – to experiment with her vocals…The pacing mirrors all the frantic ups and downs of a teetering relationship, with Lenae storming around Lacy’s instrumental, changing her tone and her mind over and over again. Even through all this relationship drama, Lenae makes falling out sound very fun.” The FADER named Sticky one of its 11 Songs You Need In Your Life This Week, writing, “is an incredibly apt title for this Ravyn Lenae song, which Steve Lacy provided the beats for. Those organ sounds and Lenae’s wild high notes really sound like a gooey sweet treat.

Pitchfork has listed the Crush EP as one of their 6 Albums Out Today You Should Listen To Now.

One of Billboard’s 2018’s R&B Class: Three Artists Poised For Breakout Success In 2018, Lenae is among the faces featured in Nike’s new The Force Is Female campaign.

Acclaimed by Rolling Stone in its 10 New Artists You Need to Know: March 2017 for her “thoughtful and highly lyrical electronic soul,” Lenae made her label debut last year with Midnight Moonlight The EP – which has now amassing 16.5 million on-demand US streams – Includes the single,Unknown, joined by a companion visual directed by Weird Life Films (Joey Purp, Chance the Rapper).

Midnight Moonlight instantly received a range of critical applause, with Pitchfork raving, “Chicago R&B singer Ravyn Lenae’s impressive new EP brims with quiet intensity, as her subtle falsetto glides over a blend of modern bounce, dream pop, and electro-soul…the vocalist captures a robust spectrum of black art while establishing her own aesthetic. Lenae doesn’t sing, per se; instead, her blend of atmospheric hums speaks directly to you, even as (producer Monte) Booker’s swirling beats threaten to take most of the attention. There’s a strong nostalgia to Lenae’s music that borrows from her late ’90s and early ’00s influences, but she doesn’t simply mimic them. Lenae’s art feels current.”

Named by NYLON as one of 21 Cool Artists 21 And Under, Lenae recently wrapped The CTRL Tour alongside fellow R&B sensation SZA.

AMNPLIFY – DB

My nickname is “The Amnplifier”. Why? Because around here my focus is on being a conduit for providing greater outcomes that people come here for. My day to day “work” is living in the moment, and I love helping others concentrate on finding their connection to themselves through their experiences.

Why start a music environment? The truth is I love music, I love writing, and I love life. I work with musicians every day, and I feel certain that I will be until they put me in the ground. I have been managing people in businesses of some sort for over thirty five years so along the way I have developed some “wisdom” from my regular and constant “observations”.

Amnplify your experience. That is what we want you to do here, and if you want to let me know why you do, or don’t, shoot me a message on Facebook.

Hope you enjoy yourself here and find something that hits you somewhere.
