All the vibes that could ever exist dwells within R&B gem Rè Lxuise. Dropping her new project entitled “Nostalgia: 199x”, it’s pretty clear that Rè’s vocal abilities and pen game are strong. If you’ve have doubt that R&B could make a comeback such as this, think again!
Rè reigns from the ATL and wants all her fans to know that Indy matters. Reminding everyone via Twitter that it’s not easy pulling a music project together independently, “Y’all I put this album together with no money, no help (if you exclude my producers & engineer), no big promo. It took me from January to November of 2017 to complete. This is my life & Im Indy AF. Please, BUY & SHARE THIS ALBUM..”.
Nostalgia: 199x is not Rè Lxuise‘s first project and it definitely won’t be her last. Her 2017 EP D.M. Me (Don’t Mind My Emotions) is also one to keep in heavy rotation.
Nostalgia 199x’s dope tracks include: Oiyr, Let Me Know, Mine, and Lynm... and if we keeping it real the entire project.
Don’t forget the name, Rè Lxuise and expect to hear her take over your 2018 airwaves
Music, literally keeps me going. I wake up, I press play. The shower comes on, and I sing at the top of my lungs. I head out on my commute, and in my head I’m having a full on dance off with the commuter next to me. I discover new artist, and their new songs, and it hits me right in my core. I can literally FEEL music. My heart does a double skip when I can relate. My eyes cry when the words are familiar...
Music the experience I relive on the daily.
So I guess you’d understand my dismay when I (a music lover) feel like my drive to write music is on neutral.... no actual gas, but if I get a little push something will come out. For the first time in my life, I am struggling to pen a song. It use to come to me so easily. I’d watch TV and write a song based off the storyline. My friend would cry to me about a life experience and I’d write a song. And forget if I’M going through it, my feelings are all up and down my notebook.
This year thus far has been a take action year for me. A “let’s address this” year for me. I clearly don’t have all of the answers or else this entire blog would be nonexistent. But I do know that I’m going to commit myself to the following to try and spark the music and words that are buried deep down inside of me:
I want different.
I can be different.
Different’s right in front of me.
