If something good was to come from the pandemic, it is A1 and J1. Meeting on the App Houseparty in 2020, 15-year-old A1 from North West London and now based in Coventry and 17-year-old J1 from Kent started their rapping aspirations together remotely, showcasing a zeitgeist movement from the repercussions of this year.
The track launched as just a 15 second tease, going viral on Tik Tok, with social media comments begging for the song to be released in full. All organically and from 2 young, brand new artists the track now titled ‘Latest Trends’ has grown and grown on social media and is ready for its official release.
Both A1 and J1 bring unique flows throughout the track. J1 with strong standout bars and A1 who brings the idyllic catchy chorus. Rap and R&B vibes are in full flow with the UK stamp placed on the track. Resonating the UK Rap scene, the instrumental is easy to take to and very well sculpted. With guitar taking the lead of the beat the simplicity of the loop along with the tasteful production surrounding, establishes a great platform for the boys to showcase their talent. Melodically the track is warming for all who listen, you cannot help but find these two likeable.
