Jelani Blackman is one of the most unique and refreshing talents around right now; and new single “Gorgeous” featuring Jords only proves that.

“Gorgeous” sees Jelani and Jords both trade vocals celebrating life and their respective journeys – delivered over an ominous Spanish guitar sample and swaggering, bass-heavy beat.

Both possess refreshing deep tones combined with immaculate flows; this allows the pair to naturally glide over the production with ease. Two of London’s most highly rated wordsmiths and creative talents on the same track most certainly does not disappoint!

Jords is one of my favourite artists and someone I’ve wanted to link up with for a while. The energy is 10/10; legit love listening to it and then hearing Jords on it makes it even better,” Jelani explains. “Jelani is a brother who I’ve wanted to work with for a while and when I created the instrumental I felt that his cadence suited the song perfectly. It just makes a lot of sense,” Jords adds.

Jelani Blackman has announced plans for his debut full length project Unlimited Mixtape, which will be out on the 29th October.
