ENSPIRE Contributor: Anastasia Hanna
Josh X and Baky wrote “Eskize Mwen,” which was produced by DJ Swanko. Mocka Blu directed the video for the song. The new summer anthem of 2021, “Eskize Mwen,” is now available via the KSR Records label imprint on all streaming and download platforms. “Eskize Mwen” is a kickoff to the summer. As we prepare for post-COVID life, this record looks to fuse the Brooklyn “Drill” sound with Koompa to create a fresh and fun music movement. “I was very excited to collaborate with my Haitian brother and rap heavyweight, Baky, as his energy is crazy!” mentions Josh.
Josh X currently has the streets and clubs on fire nationwide with his latest release “Henny & Highgrade.” “Henny & Highgrade” serves as quite the introduction. Over a bass-heavy, hip-hop inspired beat, Josh paints a vivid picture of the lifestyle his success has afforded him and those he cares for the most; this single is not Josh’s first foray into the limelight.
Just coming off the success of his last release, “I Miss You,” the Haitian-American singer created quite a buzz with earlier tracks featuring hip-hop heavyweights like Jadakiss and, most recently, Rick Ross. Industry professionals are also quite familiar with this young virtuoso, who began playing classical piano at six. Since figuring out in college that his passion for music would be best expressed in the R&B world, Josh X has amassed quite the songwriting and production resume. He has worked alongside multi-platinum producers and artists including Swizz Beatz, Jerry Wonder, and Birdman, and even played an instrumental role in Cardi B’s development as an artist, collaborating with her on early singles “Selfish” and “Heaven On My Mind.”
