ENSPIRE Contributor: Wesley Tran
“PARTY LIKE WE GROWN” was written by Tanji Emmeni and Carez Harris and produced by Ronald “Slack” Jefferson. SHILO mentions that “Party is a song I feel everyone can enjoy. It’s one of those records that makes you move no matter who you are. The “old-school” vibes of the track pair perfectly with the “new age” lyrical and vocal performance of the group. The mix of the two makes the track fun for all ages“. “We wanted to make a song for people of all ages to listen and dance to, plus we pay homage to a great,” the group adds.
In the coming weeks, SHIELO will embark on a “PARTY LIKE WE GROWN” promotional tour supporting the new single. “Partying Markets” includes; Atlanta, New Orleans, Charlotte, Charleston, Dallas, Houston, Shreveport, and Washington DC, to name a few. The 4 stars of SHIELO are excited to bring the concert to you! “I like the music and everything but I love the reaction that comes from performing. I want to connect with the crowd the way that people like Michael Jackson, Usher, and The Temptations can do. I’ve always liked the reaction people gave us. I love how the crowd reacts,” Duan, one of 4 members in SHIELO, says.
Like many other talented boy bands before them, the Louisiana-based R&B group Shilo has spent years honing their craft and growing together. They’ve won the hearts and support of their hometown and are on a serious mission to win the hearts of the nation and ultimately the world. They are Demontrell “Carez” Harris, Jerhaime “Oli” Walls, Dominique “Lil Kelly” Kelly, and Kaderrek “Duan” McCoy. Through humble beginnings, the group formed and decided to create music and perform together at a very young age. Whether meeting in high school, through social media, or through their manager, the four have found their way to one another to create SHILO.
Through the insight of producer Ron “Slack” Jefferson and manager Tanji Emmeni, the guys joined forces and became the newly revamped Shilo. Music magic happened through their collective talent for writing and producing different styles and subject matter. They have sultry and enticing but fresh voices that melt and roll into already-hot lyrics and tracks. Geared up with new music and a growing following, Shilo is ready to continue showing off their amazing style and sound with their summer anthem, “Party Like We Grown.” “The song came about by just wanting to make feel-good music. We wanted to make something for grown people and party without the b.s. We wanted a feel-good song where you could turn up with your guys and your girl. To do you,” Carez says.
With the ups and downs that come with being a part of a group, the four members stay grounded by working together and being natural friends. Though SHILO is ready to take the summer with a new club banger, they want fans everywhere to know that there’s a deeper purpose in their music. After years of perfecting their craft and artist development, SHILO is groomed for success in the music industry and they are grateful, appreciative, and ready to capture new fans.
