„TO THE LIGHT“ feat. J.Hoard J HOARD: When darkness is around and heartache brings you down. Let waves hope crash upon your soul When those troubles come and beat on you like a drum. Look to the sky and give in to the light. DIZZY SENZE: (Verse 1) The endgame freeing the world off of my pen game Schooling them and hoping my time ain’t in the pen state Sense 8 incredible power when I could sensei Learning to control the flow cycle of menstruate It’s way better off the block, blame Dikembe Life felt so bad, boy, had lil Kim faith Til I’m feeling Diddy now, and my city down To a state of emergency all via a shitty route J HOARD: In the nighttime the moon shines Look to the sky and give in to the light Behind every grey sky the sun shines So recognize your reservoir of light inside (With the sky in mind, run to the light) (With the sky in mind, run to the light) DIZZY SENZE: (Verse 2) D’usse in my Fat Tuesday’s, I’m bumping Lupe Crossfading Js I’m starting to feel like Luke Cage Mask on seen the world moving closer to Doomsday Used to be only concerned with groupies, now I’m all in a new age Where crazy things boggle my toupee Like how much fluoride in my toothpaste, tryna make sure my whole crew straight Been sweet enough for whoever sippin’ my kool-aid But been broke enough for therapy and the school aid All 10 if I’m gon’ stand, keep my balance steady Environment mostly taught me always be violence ready Health is wealth, so I’m cashing in til armeggedon Feeling closed off, strategizing for commissary J HOARD In the nighttime the moon shines Look to the sky and give in to the light Behind every grey sky the sun shines So recognize your reservoir of light inside You got light inside You got light inside You've got light inside With the light inside You've got light inside In the nighttime the moon shines Look to the sky and give in to the light Behind every grey sky the sun shines So recognize your reservoir of light inside

SABOR feat. J.Hoard Verse Find you in a city on a hill Where you can't feel all the troubles below Way up high you hide the light at night So much so valleys rely on moonglow Pre-Chorus You stay so stingy/ not spreading your salt over the earth You took the blessing/ forgetting the vow to disburse And there ain't nothin'/ like broken promises, they're the worst It should be ease to your salt and heal the hurt Chorus You've got sabor to spread all over the world/ Use your sabor to heal all the wound of the world/ Share your sabor as ingredients for a recipe to a better world/ don't you want a better world? Pre-Chorus You stay so busy/ consumed by things to verify your worth You keep pretending that what you've got you really deserve And there ain't nothing like false pretense to cover your curse Let's make it easy/ to use your salt and heal the hurt Chorus You've got sabor to spread all over the world/ Use your sabor to heal all the wound of the world/ Share your sabor as ingredients for a recipe to a better world/ don't you want a better world? You've got sabor

„ENCORE“ feat. KAY Chorus Lighters up cause they said they want an encore Bout to dip, my people said they need more Let’s take a trip to the dancefloor So we can two step to an encore Get her a drink, you might get an encore You not vibin’ dog, what you here for? The party don’t stop till the break of dawn So raise your lighters up strictly for the encore Verse 1 Raise the lighters, I’m thinking that they like us Insist on two stepping, watching shorty cause she’s righteous We living, just enough for the city In the night where inhibitions released I’m taking over the streets I’m Made for this as I sip upon the finest of cognac Some blow “good” dawg but I don’t blow that I got to keep my vision ultra-high definition Cause it’s all about the memories Kay Jack with that Tupac energy As I slide with the verse and the similes From H-Town to Switzerland Kay spread “Verzuz” on Swizz Beatz like Timberland Beautiful Now, beautiful life we living even in a pandemic Outside Mask On turnt up All night that’s all turn it up Let’s have an encore take your hands raise ‘em up. --- Chorus --- Verse 2 Watch me do my do, and when I do that do It’s like Birth Of The Cool Brothers plotting in the corner like they Fu Manchu When they only brought one and I was like “yeah…two” That’s better, keep the vibe magnetic As I step, got the Gucci’s on the sediment Only bout the best brother never ever settling Always lean forward man you can’t back peddle When your life’s like an encore, curtain call I’m Certified, been so since nineteen something some’ Flavor like Chachere, tell me how you want it you can get it. Pièce de resistance, Pinnacle, Supreme vision Kay hit the scene lit, got you covered like a seamstress Beautiful Now, people peep the beautiful style with Kay on the Encore man we tearing it down --- Chorus ---

about

The Beautiful Now are back with a new EP called CURRENT feat. Dizzy Senze, J.Hoard, Yamin Semali, Spooks McGhie, BIGYUKI and Kay.

Sonically, the music is a natural development of the blueprint that was laid out ever so precisely on "MOES", their debut. As always, their sound is warm and has that late summer eve, with the sun hanging ripe and red and real low over your head type of feel. The lines are socially conscious, informative, at times mildly militant, and full of love!

Enjoy!
