Elijah Blake

April 16, 2020

Elijah Blake, a two-time Grammy Award winning contemporary R&B singer/songwriter releases his latest offering “Frenemies,” off his upcoming album due later this summer. Widely regarded in the industry as the pioneering creator of the modern Alt/R&B sound, Elijah Blake’s song and video are available everywhere now. Elijah expounds, “I wrote and recorded this song a little while back, somewhere around the time the whole Nipsey tragedy happened. I waited until I felt was a more appropriate time to release it. I’m not sure if people are just different these days because of what we’re exposed to because of the Internet or if we just see who people really are more closely because of the Internet. It makes true friendships and unbreakable family bonds hard to come by.”

“Frenemies” follows his critically-acclaimed song “5 Gold Rings” which arrived ahead of his first-ever holiday project, Holiday Love, released this past November. The record was a fan fan favorite, offering a trap Christmas version akin to “The 12 Days of Christmas,” “5 Gold Rings” found Elijah flexing both of his singing and rapping abilities over a bouncy, head-nodding trap beat. Lyrically, Elijah showcased his inner trapper, touting “5 gold rings, like I’m Kobe.” The song took on special significance following the passing of the legendary basketball icon. Before that, Elijah had released his EP Bijoux 23 in 2018, and 2019’s joint-project with Jordin Sparks, 1990 Forever. Elijah Blake is known industry-wide as the pioneer behind the birth of Alt-R&B having penned several chart-topping history making hits such as Usher’s No. 1 chart-topper “Climax.” As a hitmaker, he’s behind countless smash records for the likes of Mary J. Blige, Beyonce, Rihanna, Jennifer Hudson, Trey Songz, Keyshia Cole, Ciara, Alicia Keys, Britney Spears, Kelly Rowland, Nas, Justin Bieber, Common, J. Cole, No I.D., The Game, Rick Ross, Dej Loaf, and many more.
