The luminous Compton artist AzBenzz put together a four track EP produced by Jay P Bangz and Audio King. The tracks on "Something Sensational," his first project of the year, each tune into a different side of this eccentric thing we all call love.
The title was inspired by none other than the vocalist’s hard work and dedication.
"Remember how we was talking about my age and you said I'm in my prime right now? That's how I felt when making this EP. It felt sensational, like something I never felt before."
The extended playlist opens up with "No Bullshit" where the vocalist tells a story of a focused musician. One so tunnel visioned he has no time for foul play aimed at his heart. Benzz also shared the track is his personal favorite.
The second track "Company" is the song you play tucked besides your lover. The art of his lyrics and crooning melodies radiate sexual energy. The visual for Company premiered on YouTube March 14th.
"F*ck On You (Ft. 1TakeOcho)" samples the legendary Bootsie Collins' "I'd Rather Be With You". The George Clinton beat has been sampled numerously across the industry by various artists and effortlessly have had a track record for commercial success.
With that being said Benzz does not fall behind. The song is just as addictive to play on a loop with it's touch of funkadelic romance.
"Damaged" closes out the project. The narrative of heartbroken paranoia is one we could all relate to. The song amplifies his emotions towards a new connection he is not quite ready for.
"You can't trust me with your heart, I'm still damaged."
Initially the artist was set to drop the project today following his now postponed show.
The artists expected to perform at said show included the SouthEast P Big $wift, CraigyF, 1TakeOcho, Sambo, Mackgee, Romain4k, Forever Kofi, DSweatTeallyHim, and FendiFrank.
No questions asked, the show would have been something sensational.
