Facelit Famous is a singer, songwriter and aspiring genre-fluid artist from Alabama. Growing up in a musical family he was exposed to and influenced by Oldies Rock & Roll, Country music, Pop and Hip-Hop. As a result his list of musical influences is long and diverse. He names everyone from Andre3000 to Bruce Springsteen and Garth Brooks as inspiration. He began releasing music early in 2020 and his musical output reflects this wide-ranging interest.
On the new single “Races,” he parlays his homogeneous musical view into an all-inclusive world perspective. Over an upbeat, summertime groove the singer calls for understanding and tolerance across all cultural lines, political divides and ethnic identities. He raps about unity and rejects institutional racism. Focusing on our similarities rather than our differences he says, “Believe that you bleed, eat and dream, live and breathe just like me.”
Earlier this week Facelit Famous premiered the video for “Races.” Amid palm trees and sunshine, the artist sings his groovy melodic Alternative Hip-hop tune of togetherness. He is joined by a group of diverse fans from a broad spectrum of ages, races and gender. The musical component of “Races” is equally diverse with a Trap-influenced Hip-hop beat, Caribbean sub-rhythms, EDM synths and a definitively Pop hook. It is a great song with a powerful message.
