GRAMMY Winner Elijah Blake Releases “Bad Liar” / Song & Video

Grammy winner Elijah Blake returns with his next single and video “Bad Liar.” It’s an amazing visual that is timely, relevant and visually commanding. The song and video tackles the issue of mental health awareness and Elijah’s website is currently now a resource hub for mental health resources. Elijah Blake is one of the most talented songwriters in music, and he’s a respected artist in his own right. He broke into the industry having written “Jupiter Love” on Trey Songz’s critically-acclaimed Ready album. After that, he wrote Rihanna’s “No Love Allowed,” Justin Bieber’s “I Would,” and Usher’s “Climax” — which had its own controversy this summer.

Elijah Blake says about “Bad Liar:” This song is sometimes too real for me to listen. I just went upstairs one day with Finn, the producer of this song, and said I just wanna say everything on my mind. Lately I haven¹t had the energy for negativity or anything not productive. There’s no better time to come out with this record. Everything happening in the world right now further solidified why this song couldn¹t wait.

Elijah Blake is known industry-wide as the pioneer behind the birth of Alt-R&B having penned several chart-topping history making hits such as Usher’s No. 1 chart-topper “Climax.” As a hitmaker, he’s behind countless smash records for the likes of Mary J.
