A versatile, Canadian phenom with tens of millions of streams, SonReal is coming over the border to conquer the American rap game. Showcasing his smooth voice and effortless feel for melody, SonReal gifts his legion of fans with two unique new singles. Emoting over gently-plucked acoustic guitar and soaring, synthesized strings, SonReal empathizes with the world’s dream chasers on “Problems.” Sharing tales from his come-up during his short verses, he offers words of assurance on the chorus: “Everybody’s got some problems,” he sings, “not just you and me.” In addition to “Problems,” SonReal shares the harder-edged, more hip-hop focused “Supersize.” Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump.
Flashing a melodic flow over an infectious electric guitar riff, SonReal asserts his dominance over the music game, singing about the substantial room for growth for his already large fanbase. Premiered by Earmilk, “Problems” and “Supersize” are the latest releases from SonReal’s upcoming album One Long Dream, releasing via Black Box, following “Potential,” a soaring ballad with a China-set video, which Apple Music added to its “Best of the Week” playlist and Spotify added to its “Pop All Day” playlist.
Born in British Columbia, the multi-talented SonReal is one of the biggest stars in Canadian music, earning 6 nominations at the Juno Awards and 10 nominations and 1 win at the MuchMusic Video Awards. He has headlined numerous tours in the US and Canada and most recently opened for Jon Bellion on his sold out NA Tour. Gaining inroads into the American market through streaming, SonReal tailored One Long Dream for mass consumption, with uplifting messages and brilliant melodies delivered through his smooth and distinctive voice. Building upon the momentum from the popular “Can I Get A Witness?“, which dominated the radio and sold platinum in Canada, One Long Dream will expose SonReal to a hungry American audience. Featuring production from Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds, Rahki (Kendrick, YG, Schoolboy Q), DJ Kahlil (Dr Dre, Anderson Paak, Eminem) and others, One Long Dream will hit stores later this summer.
