Following his signing with 300 Entertainment and the release of his highly-anticipated album Young Fel 2 last Friday, trailblazing rapper, singer, songwriter, instrumentalist and producer Felly, popularly known for singles like the soulful “Heartstrings” with Carlos Santana and swagger-filled “Cheap Cheap” featuring Jack Harlow, has released the music video for album single “Midnight,” available now on YouTube.
The visual for his album track “Midnight” comes just one week after the album release and announcement of his signing with 300 Entertainment, one of the largest independent record labels in the world and home to Megan Thee Stallion, Young Thug, Gunna and many more. Coinciding with his description of Young Fel 2 as “a nighttime album, one you listen to driving at night” and the song’s dark theme, the official music video fittingly takes place in the backseat of a black Maybach while Felly and his friend get driven around at night. The song showcases Felly’s signature creative rap flows and supreme lyricism over a subdued, hypnotic beat.
The album’s first two singles are irresistibly energetic, guitar-infused hip-hop songs, “Still Young” and “Pot Of Gold,” whereas its third single “Bones” is more indie-leaning. Overall, Young Fel 2 features Felly’s experimental blend of traditional rap, indie rock, and soul; revisiting his rap roots with the original EP’s childlike and playful nature, but with a new-age mindset paired with darker tones that align with the album’s release during his favorite month of the year – October.
Young Fel 2 consists of fourteen masterfully-crafted songs that showcase a culmination of Felly’s signature creative rap flow, supreme lyricism, diverse and unforgettable production, and beaming energy, while also clearly displaying evolved songwriting and growth as an artist. The project and its production have influences from a variety of genres and evoke a spectrum of feelings, beginning with the laidback and vibey focus track, “Fresh Water.” Other standout songs of the project include the upbeat and infectious hip-hop track “Fire Out Back,” the slower-paced and folk-influenced “Open Door,” and the deeply personal final song “Black Van.”
