Grammy-winning songwriter and R&B artist Eric Bellinger releases his new album 1-800-HIT-EAZY, a joint collaboration with Grammy-nominated producer and longtime friend Hitmaka. The new project combines the expertise of both artists, from Bellinger’s signature smooth lyrics to Hitmaka’s precise beats.
“The first time me & Hitmaka got together we made The Light with Jeremih & Ty Dolla $ign,” explains Bellinger. “The song got us a Gold plaque. The next time we linked we created “HYWI?” For Teyana Taylor. That got us another Gold plaque. We figured we should keep working lol After a few 5 song a day sessions we figured it would make sense to release a collab project of our own. Midway through me working on my Cuffing Season 3 album I stole 7 songs from what would’ve been a sooner version of our joint album. Luckily we work quick lol The songs were replaced and no one was harmed during the process lol With us being heavily influential towards the culture from behind the scenes from producing and writing some of the biggest records of our generation… We both have people hitting us all the time to work on records for them or their artists or somebody they know so it was only right to call the project 1-800-HIT-EAZY!”
