New single “Love That Sound,” on Jordan Schur and Carl Stubner’s Suretone label, brings together a pair of Chicago-based artists in hitmaker Jeremih and buzzing newcomer Sayyi, who’s also a Suretone management client.
The collaborators are headlining a series of major-city concert events to coincide with the launch of a new partnership between Suretone and Casamigos tequila. Next up: L.A., Chicago and Atlanta.
Sayyi has been making waves over the past year, with collabs alongside Brenmar and others. “Love That Sound,” which is getting rave reviews in the hip-hop press (“the Soundz-produced jam arrives just in time for your future cookouts and summer get-togethers,” says 2dopeboyz.com), comes off Digital Trapstars’ just-released mixtape Screens on Lock Three. Check out the track here.
“Love That Sound” is one of three Sayyi-involved singles; he’s also featured on E.A.S.Y.’s “What You Mean,” and a collab with TWRK and Migos is on deck.
