I think it’s safe to say that, as a team, we spent a significant amount of time teasing in 2014. There was plenty of talk of new music and a few hints dropped here and there but we didn’t officially release as much new music as we would have liked. Don’t worry though because that’s about to change in 2015! All of the music we teased at the end of 2014 will definitely be released in 2015! Fair warning: between WeKnowTheDJ Radio Volume 5 and a few other secret projects, now would be a good time to make sure you have plenty of room in your iTunes library.
One of our favorite DMV-area rappers made sure to start things off strong this year. On January 1, after a long wait, Blake Kelly officially released “Oprah,” a track that I’m preparing to have stuck in my head for days on end. Posted on SoundCloud, “Oprah” has racked up over 5,000 plays in less than 24 hours.
At the end of July, our guy Blake Kelly posted the artwork for “Oprah” for his 23,300 Twitter followers with the message “New single ‘Oprah’ coming soon !!!” leading me to believe that he has taken a page out of that Bieber kid’s book. While BK and JB don’t understand that the definition of “soon” is “in or after a short time,” they both clearly prove that the wait is always worth it. The Soundz-created beat combined with Blake Kelly’s flawless bars form the musical masterpiece that is “Oprah” and yes, we’re watching.
Plain and simple, it seems that everyone loves the three-minute track, produced by Soundz. This isn’t the first time that Blake or Soundz have been featured on WeKnowTheDJ and if my intuition is correct, this definitely will not be the last time we feature the two incredibly talented artists on our website. Until then, listen to “Oprah” on repeat and send us a tweet at @weknowthedj to share your thoughts!
