Chris McClenney is definitely a name we have been raving about for a minute now. The young beatmaker has a collaboration list that spans the entire length of contemporary R&B but his latest single “Legacy” is a reminder of the talented artist that he is also.
Written by McClenney and co-produced with Syk Sense, “Legacy” encapsulates what it’s like to be marginalized in America and have your life taken away suddenly as a result of police violence. His follow up the self-produced single, “downforwhatever”, the track’s delicate production stops you in your tracks, forcing you to listen to it’s intentional lyrics.
The latest single follows a massive year for Chris that includes a Grammy nomination, an ASCAP Pop & R&B award win and studio time with a long list of names including D.R.A.M, H.E.R, Gallant, Cassie, Kyle Dion and Normani to name a few. With a recent release of a Beat Tape, FREE LUNCH and a debut LP currently in the works, Chris McClenney’s voice is one that you’ll want to keep up with.
