Malachiae – Try To Love
Southwest Atlanta’s own, Malachiae, releases his video for his new recording, “Try To Love”. The Motown Records-signed phenom serves up romantic melodic vocals with the backing of trap 808s. The nostalgic track has a smooth heartfelt feel serving us with a fresh R&B sound while making him a powerful vocal force in the Hip-Hop & R&B game.
Directed by Malachi Lee (DaniLeigh, Earthgang, Big K.R.I.T) the video is a beautiful portrait of love and conflict. Paired with Malachiae’s strong vocals and wise-beyond-his-years lyrics, it could not be clearer that Malachiae got his start singing in the church.
Although Malachiae grew up on rap music, he has always had a love and affinity for R&B. On confessional verses, he declares in a smooth alluring voice yet rapper attitude, “Don’t act like I ain’t changed your life, because we both know the truth.” The singer/songwriter/producer is a breath of fresh air to the R&B genre that has lacked the sensitivity and sensuality of classic R&B.
Just getting started, Malachiae is from a legacy of R&B masters having developed his craft as a singer/songwriter. He’s a part of the Street Love family, guided by the legendary ATL Songwriter/Producer, Jasper Cameron (Ciara“Promise”, Mario “Crying Out For Me”, Lloyd “You” feat. Lil Wayne). Malachaie has been building his foundation while performing across his hometown and connecting with fans through his infectious covers on Instagram. Having secured national radio and television plays on channels such as BET Jams, Malachaie is on a rocket-ship headed straight for superstardom.
