Kendall Reward 500x500

Up and coming Atlantic Records artist Kyndall (previously Kendall) returns with her fourth song of the year, as she slowing gives fans and new listeners a further taste of her impressive talents.

We previously introduced you to the young singer/songwriter with the catchy R&B/Pop song “Reward” at the beginning of the year, and while we were expecting more from her in 2014, Kyndall has big plans for the new year, including her official introduction.

On her latest release, the Texas native hooks up fellow Houston native Kirko Bangz for the bouncy break-up anthem “Hol’ Up.”  Kyndall kicks her boy to the curb, but she’s not cryin any tears, and she’s not about to take him back.

“Boy get out your feelings I’m just chillin, you can hol’ up / Sorry if you miss it I ain’t wit it, shawty hol’ up,” she bluntly sings.

Kyndall is currently prepping for the release of her debut EP, ‘Reward,’ which is coming soon. Get familiar with the name, because we are projecting big things from the fiery southern songstress.

Watch: Mystery Group Tuxedo Release New Video “Do It”

Tuxedo-Do-It

Ok, so once in a blue when we’re browsing through email submissions we come across something special and unexpected. Now, we had never heard of an artist or group named Tuxedo, but apparently they emerged last year with three tracks of smooth, synth-heavy, disco funk, and no information whatsoever about the group.

Some have speculated that this is the work of soulful singer Mayer Hawthorne and producer Jake One. Judging by Hawthorne’s cameo in this new video for “Do It” it appears that the rumors are correct.

We’re told to expect a full album in 2015. Until then check out the fun, dance-heavy video below and stay classy!
