Da Real EKG – Thing 4 You
Da Real EKG has finger on the pulse of music with new single ‘Thing 4 You’
An EKG machine is a medical device that keeps up with the electric pulses of the human body. Da Real EKG is an artist who offers the same for the music industry. He has his finger on the pulse of music and his unique sound and style are providing a fresh perspective in a time desperate for originality.
His latest single, “Thing 4 You” is a perfect example of this original sound and style. Opening with R&B harmonies and a smooth, mid-tempo flow, this song has a sway to it that cannot be denied. Showcasing his deep voice – both as a singer and a rapper – the song is one that perfectly fuses R&B and Rap in ways that are truly one-of-a-kind. The track features fellow artists A.M. and T-Blak, and was created a couple of years ago but has only recently seen wide distribution after a re-release from the label.
“We were all stuck in the studio one day and somebody had a beat and we were all hearing the same thing over and over again and when I finally got a chance to spit it out, it came out great,” EKG said. “It’s all of us telling our own unique love stories. At the time I had met someone that I wanted to show the world to, but not give her the world. But it was one of those relationships that I knew wasn’t gonna work out. A.M., on the other hand, is rapping about someone he wants to give the world to Overall, it’s a love vibe and everything is so vibrant and in tune to the moment.”
The single is one that is true to his trajectory as an artist. After releasing his first single “The Love Letter,” his career has made a steady rise over the past few years. He released an album in 2017 called “Lit at the 30” which has seen success across all streaming platforms. And more recently, he’s been preparing to release his new album “The Struggle” which will break down a lot of urban stereotypes and talk about his current position and the challenges he’s faced to get to where he is today in his career.
“A lot of people go too deep into it and say that their situation has to be a product of their environment,” EKG said. “I have had a mentor growing up who is no longer with us, and he taught me that you have to change the notion that you have to be a stereotype or a statistic or a product of your environment. You don’t have to be that. You can be different. For me, that meant getting in the studio and finishing off this album and showing the world how to do things a different way.”
The album should release this fall, EKG said. In the meantime, “Thing 4 You” is available across all streaming platforms.
