NELLY – THE FIX FEAT. JEREMIH
Global star and Grammy Award-winning artist Nelly is back with a brand new track ‘The Fix’ Featuring R&B artist Jeremih. ‘The Fix’ is produced by DJ Mustard alongside Mike Free with the music video set to be released in Spetember.
‘The Fix’ featuring Jeremih is a cool R&B song that has the Nelly sound that fans have missed. The mention of Marvin Gaye’s ‘Sexual Healing’ (“when you give me that feeling I get sexual healing”) is a great addition to the track and a clever nod to one of the greatest R&B artists.
Jeremih’s unique and silky voice goes great against Nelly’s deep voice to create wonderful harmonies throughout the song. The song starts with a simple riff and clapping-beat and then adds a steady ‘hey hey hey’ in the background that takes you back to Nelly’s old sound with a modern twist.
‘The Fix’ reintroduces fans to Nelly’s classic R&B sound that gave him success when he started to now. With over 22 million albums sold, Nelly will not disappear from the music scene anytime soon and ‘The Fix’ is sure to be a great success with his existing and new fans.

ALEX G – BUG
Alex Giannascoli a.k.a Alex G has released ‘Bug’ from his upcoming album ‘Beach Music’ out October 9. ‘Beach Music’ will be the Philadelphia born artist’s seventh full-length album with influences ranging from noise music to piano-based laments to Southern rock to the rhythmic focus of techno.
‘Bug’ is an easygoing acoustic guitar track that is perfect to listen to when relaxing. ‘Bug’ is a reflection of the upcoming album ‘Beach Music’ as it would be perfect to bring along to relax under the sun. The track has a rough sound to it with Alex’s vocals having a muffled sound that sounds like a demo recording in a garage. The rough sound the track has gives it an indie feel with bits of Oasis and Jake Bugg.
During the last chorus the vocals are manipulated with auto-tune to a higher pitch that sounds like bugs singing: a nod to the track’s title. The faint dissonance of clashing chords throughout gives the song a more dynamic feel rather than just a simple singular chord progression during the track.
Alex G has featured on a number of Artists To Watch lists from outlets such as Fader and Rolling Stone and has created a fervent cult fan base that is sure to love ‘Bug’ and the upcoming songs on ‘Beach Music’.
