New Visuals "We Still Have a Dream" by Sonny King and Pietro of Music For Love • Word Is Bond

Sonny King and Pietro are artists with the organization Music for Love.  The organization was developed to spread awareness on charity projects, help people in need, and to support communities in different countries around the world.

Sonny and Pietro create and share music to demonstrate their devout commitment towards change. As they strive for peace and harmony they turn to the celebrated speech of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr..  His “Dream” offers hope even in today’s troubled times and suffering. Sonny and Pietro grasp a beacon of light from “I Have a Dream” to solicit help to heal the world.

“We Still Have a Dream” is the latest collaboration of Sonny King and Pietro. The video captures the elated smiles and life of all ages. The duo also captures authentic interaction with people from all walks of life. It is evident they will not turn their backs on MLK Jr.’s speech or our tarnished nation.

“Music for love take the pain away/from the heavens above and places far away/music for love let it light the way”

The percussions and upbeat sounds of drums blended with other instruments set the tone for this joyous message of peace and hope. Stream “We Still Have a Dream” here.

Ivy Sole take us back to the "Backwoods" feat. Anyee Wright • Word Is Bond

Rising Rapper-singer Ivy Sole releases the video for her song “Backwoods”  and it features fellow Philadelphia based artist Anyee Wright.  The song (Produced by CRO & Corey Smith-west) is a reflective record where Ivy looks back at her teenage years during high school and all the drama that comes with the raging hormones. She dwells on the typical teenage shenanigans and also questions the rationale behind it from an introspective point of view.

The Brothers Ed directed video showcases the duo on a stakeout in Ivy’s Toyota 4Runner and keeping the lookout for an apparent heist. With spunky animations and a couple of thought-provoking messages, the video strikes the perfect balance of lighthearted fun and intellectually stimulating. Much like the song itself, Ivy brings an understated cool and intensely contemplative approach to the visual, challenging her audience just as much as she’s entertaining them.

“Backwoods” is taken from her upcoming full-length studio album, OVERGROWN, out September 18th on Les Fleurs Records.

Bay Area-based Producer and Rapper Tope returns with his first single for 2018 titled “Never Told You”. The self-produced song showcases TOPE in a personal mode as he breaks down what he has been going through in his life.

He has definitely bounced back after having his entire music library stolen at a show in San Francisco in 2017.

Not the one to easily give up he has since hit the reset button and went on to produce for Slum Village, Gift of Gab of Blackalicious, Skyzoo amongst others. He is back in the lab working on his full length too.
