Mali Music Drops New Music/Video “Cry”

Mali Music unveils “Cry,” a soul-stirring new ballad from his soon to be released fifth album, Book of Mali (August 14). The song not only showcases Mali’s depth as a vocalist and songwriter, but also his prowess as a guitarist.

In addition, Mali premiered the video for “Cry” via his YouTube channel and BET Soul. The powerful visual, which was directed by Child, perfectly matches the mood of the song and the metaphors conveyed by both are sure to evoke raw emotion.

When talking about the creative process behind “Cry,” one of Book of Mali’s most visceral songs, “I am led by the spirit of God, and it was just me on the guitar in the studio and the lyrics were there. When I got to the chorus and the adlibs began to come and the tears began to fall, I could just see the world really forming,” Says Mali.

The song “Cry” is available now on all major digital streaming platforms.

Tori Kelly Reveals Tracklisting, Cover For Upcoming New EP And More

On August 14, Tori Kelly will release Solitude, a five-song EP that she recorded at home during quarantine. The two-time GRAMMY winner announced the track listing today and shared one of its five songs – her poignant version of Drake’s “Time Flies.” Download / stream “Time Flies” HERE and watch Tori’s acoustic, at-home performance video for the track HERE. Pre-order / pre-save Solitude, HERE.

“I’ve never been more thankful for my home studio than I have during this season of being quarantined,” says Tori Kelly. “In some ways, it felt like I was going back to my roots, when I would be in my room, making songs and posting covers on YouTube. A lot of change has happened since my last album, so it felt great to just freely write what was on my heart and be inspired by different stories. I had so much fun creating this EP and I’m excited to share this new chapter of my music.” 

Tori penned three of the EP’s five tracks at home. After recording acoustic demos, she worked remotely with producers Monro, Spencer Stewart and Stint to complete “Value” and “Don’t Take Me Home.” On the funky, exuberant “Unbothered” – a much-needed dose of hope, looking to the good times ahead – she collaborated with writers Chloe George and Micah Premnath and producer Jorgen Odegard (Imagine Dragons, P!nk, Adam Lambert). The EP closes with the highly personal “Glad,” a soulful ballad that Tori wrote for her husband, producing and recording the song herself.

Since making her debut with 2015’s Unbreakable Smile – a widely acclaimed album that entered the Billboard 200 at No. 2 – Tori Kelly has lit up the pop landscape with her breathtaking vocals and full-hearted songwriting, amassing nearly 2.5 billion combined global streams to date. With her 2018 passion project Hiding Place, the L.A.-based artist continued to captivate audiences and took home two prizes at the 2019 GRAMMY Awards: Best Gospel Album and Best Gospel Performance/Song for the hit single “Never Alone.”

On her powerfully personal 2019 album, Inspired By True Events , Kelly offered up her bravest and most bracingly candid work to date. She supported the album with a 2019 U.S. tour and an early 2020 U.K. run.

With her 2020 European tour cut short due to COVID-19, Tori began collaborating with other artists online via her “QuaranTEA with Tori” series (view highlights HERE ) and working on new music.
