6LACK premieres new single, ‘Switch’ Follow-up to 2 x Grammy-nominated, ‘Free 6LACK’ UK show at Wireless Festival also confirmed.
Grammy Award-nominated singer/songwriter 6LACK has today shared new single ‘Switch’ (out now on LVRN/Interscope/Polydor Records).
On ‘Switch’, 6LACK expands on the moody R&B/hip-hop hybrid previously heard on 2016’s ‘Prblms’ (which went double-platinum and has amassed more than 99 million streams to date). With its hypnotic melody and smooth beats, ‘Switch’ also shows the subtle power of 6LACK’s vocals and introduces the follow-up to ‘Free 6LACK’, his full-length debut.
Last November, 6LACK celebrated the one-year anniversary of FREE 6LACK by delivering three new tracks: ‘Glock Six’, ‘In Between’ ft. BANKS, and ‘One Way’ ft. T-Pain. He also spent much of 2017 on the road, which included supporting Migos in New Zealand and Australia and opening for The Weeknd on his Starboy: Legend of the Fall Tour. In February 2018, 6LACK premiered an atmospheric slow jam named “Cutting Ties.”
Born Ricardo Valdez Valentine, 6LACK was raised in Atlanta’s Zone 6 and had his first recording experience at his father’s studio at the age of four. Inspired by R&B and soul artists like Sade and Usher, he taught himself to sing as a teenager and began writing intensely personal songs that drew from his relationships and experiences with homelessness. Soon after joining Atlanta-based creative collective LoveRenaissance (LVRN), he landed a deal with Interscope Records and set to work on ‘FREE 6LACK’. Hailed by Rolling Stone as “a brooding rumination on feeling free that plays like a hip-hop-informed version of The xx’s tight and skeletal gloom,” you can catch 6LACK at London’s prestigious Wireless Festival this summer.
