Eric Bellinger and Hitmaka Drop Brand New Ballad ‘Obsession’

As they prepare the world for the release of their upcoming collaborative project, GRAMMY award-winning singer/songwriter Eric Bellinger and super producer Hitmaka hit us with the lead single, “Obsession” via YFS (Your Favorite Song)/ EMPIRE. The forthcoming project is entitled 1-800-Hit-Eazy: Line 2 the follow-up to their 2021 1-800-Hit-Eazy which featured hit singles, “Hit Eazy” & “Only You.” Since its release, the project has earned more than 80 Million streams and multiple rave reviews

The word on this new single is:

“Obsession” is the quintessential R&B ballad filled with heart-wrenching vocals, a buttery slow tempo, and dramatically captivating lyrics. Serving as Bellinger’s official audio response to the highly discussed debate, “R&B Is Dead,” the smooth ballad further proves that R&B Is Very Alive and well. Co-produced by Hitmaka & Rock Boy Beats, the track is the official first single to Bellinger and Hitmaka’s forthcoming joint project, 1-800-Hit-Eazy: Line 2.

More on these successful collaborators!

This past year has undoubtedly been one of Eric’s most significant years in his career to date. He received his first GRAMMY nomination for his own album New Light (“Best Progressive R&B Album”), made his daytime and late-night debut on The Kelly Clarkson Show & Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and most recently his iconic Tiny Desk performance alongside Usher. Selling over 80 million records, HipHop’s most sought-after producer, Hitmaka can’t be stopped. This year alone, Hitmaka has produced for the world’s hottest stars including, Lil Durk, Chris Brown, Tink, Wiz Khalifa, Tinashe, and more! Just last month, Hitmaka was crowned “Producer of the Year” at BET’s Hip-Hop Awards.

These two were most definitely made to create forever music together and reassure us that R&B is inarguably NOT DEAD!!!
