New Music Roundup: CITY FIDELIA, Doughboy & THEY

Rock meets R&B, and Canada gives us a new export.

City Fidelia, "FreeDumb"

City Fidelia hails from Canada, but he’s not another import biting the OVO sound. His single “FreeDumb,” from his debut album of the same name, is heavy on musicality and melody, calling to mind J. Cole. On this song, City recalls a time in his life when he left his family and girlfriend to pursue his dreams. With his newfound freedom, he started making dumb decisions, until he realized they'd all helped him grow. This song tells that complete story in just 3:46, which is the mark of a good lyricist. —Driadonna Roland

Doughboy, "Poppin" Feat. Rich The Kid

Since Doughboy came into our REVOLT TV office, the STL artist has been on our radar. Recently, we caught wind of his latest single "Poppin," featuring Rich the Kid. Of course, neither two artists disappointed us. We are welcoming more and more bangers that arrive just in time for the summertime. So, turn up the bass, and blast this shit. —Erin Ashley Simon

THEY., "Say When"

The R&B duo THEY, consisting of singer Drew Love and producer Dante, drop another freaking awesome single with "Say When." The incorporation of rock with R&B isn't always an easy feat, but they did it effortlessly with this track. The bass is well alive, followed by guitar riffs and one "wow" feeling. If you would like to learn more about them, check out their Nu Religion EP.— E.A.S.
