SMINO - "BLKSWN"

March 28, 2017

 

Chris Smith Jr, or better known by his stage name as Smino, just debuted his anticipated album, blkswn, earlier this month.

At the end of 2016, Smino teased his fans with the release of the titled track, “blkswn.” The track was produced by Sango and highlights Smino smooth rapping and singing skills, and was the perfect song to release first, to give fans a taste of what was to come for the full length album. “blkswn” was released a full three months before the album. The singer explains,

 

"Black swans are beautiful, too. I'm not gonna let that shit make me feel sad or sorry for myself. I can't help how I am. I'm just gonna be more proud of it." 
 

Blkswn (the album) was released on March 14, in honour of his hometown of St. Louis’ area code. Featuring 18 tracks with guest appearances from Ravyn Lenae, Bari, theMIND, Jay2, Via Rosa, Akenya & Drea Smith, the album is beyond impressive.

 

On top of his album release, Smino announced last week he will go on a two -month North American tour AND was named Apple Music’s New Artist of the Week (March 20)

 

Smino is coming to Toronto on Saturday April 29. Get your tickets here!
