Singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist powerhouse Josh X shares the official music video for his single “All On Me” featuring Rick Ross which was premiered via Complex.
The stylish visual finds the charismatic X and ever-confident Ross on cruise control as they motion their way through the beautiful Miami streets, with Josh even playing a grand piano on a breathtaking Miami beachscape complete with a love interest in the distance. Directed by Picture Perfect, the video captures the soulful throwback vibe that the song evokes, fueled by live instrumentation over a smooth bass and elevated by Josh’s potent wordplay and Ross’ signature roll.
The Queens, NY native is gearing up for the release of his first project for Epic Records later this year in partnership with KSR Group (known for Cardi B, Hoodcelebrityy). Josh is known in production circles as a go-to collaborator with an A-List musical resume, he’s worked with such notables as Swizz Beatz, Brian ‘Birdman’ Williams (co-founder of Cash Money), and others, co-writing a track for FOX’s hit show Empire, and establishing himself as an early production/songwriting presence in Cardi B’s career. The two collaborated on her 2016 single “Selfish,” as well as his own release, “Heaven On My Mind,” which featured the Bronx star and climbed the Billboard Adult R&B chart. As a graduate of Juilliard, the musical prodigy has received mentorship and praise from legends like Brian McKnight and Stevie Wonder, who declared that Josh “continues to carry out the legacy of being a musician that represents real music.”
Calling “All On Me” ‘an ode to triumph and perseverance,’ Josh X is poised for his next breakout moment with the brand new video adding to his already impressive catalog.
Bronx native Fred The Godson fell in love with the Hip Hop at a young age and has since made a name for himself as a lyricist in the game. Fred is one of the few that has continued to uphold Hip Hop’s origins, known for his freestyle punchlines and witty bars. Since his XXL Freshman cover feature with artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Mac Miller, and Meek Mill, he has continued to leave his imprint on the culture, creating music with the likes of artists like Dave East, Vado, Joel Ortiz and more.
Fred’s latest project, “Special Love” featuring Rick Ross and Sincere Gubano is a transition record, sonically disparate from his distinct boom bap sound. Produced by The HeatMakerz, the track caters to the ladies and samples the classic record, “Tender Love” by Force M D’s. This is the first release leading up to his next project, slated to drop this Fall.
“The second I heard the record I could hear Rick Ross on there with me, so I called Fat Joe to come down to the studio to hear it. Joe lost Rick Ross’s number, so he had to call DJ Khaled to get it. We talked to Rick Ross and the rest is history.” – Fred The Godson
