Bobby Brackins: The Story, The Music, The Man

Bobby Brackins is back at it and this is perfect for the summer. With a season that is driven by music, Bobby Brackins teams up with IamSu and the results are epic. “Faithful” is one of those tracks that you can honestly play at all times. From the gym to the club, to at the house cleaning. This is one to def download and put on blast. This is DiamondKesawn certified.

Generated by IJG JPEG LibraryGrammy-nominated songwriter Bobby Brackins and IAMSU are sharing their “Faithful” New Bay Remix, adding fresh vibes to the infectious song that features Ty Dolla $ign on the hook and Nic Nac on the beat. Bay Area native and LA-based Bobby Brackins is gearing up for a trilogy EP release, … To Live For, … To Kill For, and … To Die For, and released “Faithful” at the top of the year as the first single via Interview Magazine. … To Live For, which will be released on May 13th, features a powerhouse roster of artists Bobby’s worked with over the years as a songwriter including Ty Dolla $ign, Zendaya (for whom he wrote her first hit single, “Swag It Out” in 2011,) Eric Bellinger, Austin Mahone, Jeremih, G-Eazy, Marc E. Bassy, Wash, and his budding artist, Mina.

Says Bobby Brackins, “This remix brings a whole new sound to the song. The original version had me rap-singing some fly, stunting-type sh*t but with this new version, I’m straight rapping and I’m referring to actual personal experiences. On this one, IAMSU kinda snapped on it old-school style, like he did for E-40’s ‘Function’ – he spazzed out on it. Between The Warriors and all the tech companies and all the music that’s coming out of the area, the Bay Area is seeing a resurgence and that’s why I called his the ‘New Bay Remix.'”

Co-writing hits including Tinashe’s “2 On,” Chris Brown’s “Loyal,” and Ty Dolla $ign’s E-40-assisted “Saved,” Bobby Brackins has proved himself an architect of the new California sound for years. Brackins also reunited with his old tour, DJ Mustard, in late 2015, to co-write “In My Room,” a collaboration with DJ trio Yellow Claw featuring Ty Dolla $ign and Young Money rapper Tyga. Last year, Brackins was featured in Forbes giving insight on his career as a hitmaker and solo artist. Thriving as a writer, rapper, and solo act, Bobby Brackins is ready to step into the spotlight with … To Live For as the first part of his forthcoming 3-part EP.

Amidst a wave of self-made songwriters, artists and producers, Oakland, California’s Bobby Brackins is at the forefront. With over 25 million YouTube plays, and international radio spins, the established soloist who has written a litany of artists including Zendaya and Jeremih is finally coming into his own. Following high school, Bobby Brackins relocated to Los Angeles alongside his producer and close friend, Nic Nac. “I wanted to keep making music with Nic, and I knew that L.A. was more industry-based. That’s where the labels and well-connected managers were,” Bobby Brackins states. Taking advantage of the web early on to brand himself the artist has had a slew of success working with countless artists which led to Bobby Brackins penning and co-producing a #1 record for Chris Brown in “Loyal,” as well as helping Tinashe find the traction necessary to earn a major label album release date with her lead single, “2 On.”

The credit is there, is as the chart and viral reaction, assuring the world that Bobby Brackins has his pen, production, and pulse on the people.
