Hot new artist Angelynn arrives on the scene with new EP ‘GiGi’ featuring standout single ‘No Love Lost’
PORTLAND, OR – Like most people, music is an emotional outlet for hip hop and R&B artist Angelynn. When she’s hurting, when she’s happy, when she just wants to be chill and vibe out, no matter the emotion, there’s always a song that she can connect with. It’s what has motivated her throughout most of her life, and it’s what sparked within her a deep desire to create music that would connect emotionally with others and provide a similar outlet.
After many years of hard work and perfecting her craft, Angelynn is ready to release her debut EP. It’s a five-track project called “GiGi” which dropped on June 22. Every song is written and recorded by Angelynn under her independent label Angelynn Entertainment. She said the project is one that almost anyone could listen to and relate with, with vibes for multiple emotions.
“I just want people to relate to my music and to feel good,” she said. “Music makes me feel good, and that’s what I want to give to other people. When they’re hurting and want to smoke and listen to music, they can turn on my song ‘Smoke in my Face’ because it’s relatable and reflects how they feel in the moment. They can just relate to and feel my music and go to it when they need to express how they feel. Sometimes, people don’t know how to put their feelings into words, but I feel like I can do that for them through my music.”
The five songs on the album are “No Love Lost” which was the debut single, “Flow,” “Good Energy,” “Lie After Lie” and “Smoke in My Face.” She currently has two music videos on her YouTube channel for “No Love Lost” and “Flow” and is working on more music videos to follow soon.
“No Love Lost” has been the single getting the most attention to date. It’s about a woman who is getting cheated on by a man. He doesn’t know she knows, and so she cheats back.
“I had to play a character when I wrote it because I would never do that,” Angelynn said. “I would never play the revenge card and cheat on a man if he cheated on me. I’d just leave. If I didn’t love the guy I was with, I would cheat if he cheated on me, but not if I really loved him. So it’s basically a song about revenge. It’s aggressive but chill as well. It feels good to sing – empowering. I wouldn’t want a man to cheat on me or for me to cheat back. But if it happened, I probably didn’t love him in the first place which is why it’s called ‘No Love Lost.’”
“Flow” is another single that’s been getting a lot of attention from the EP. It has more of a jazzy feel with some strong R&B vibes. Angelynn said it’s a song about going with the flow and how she expresses her personality – how she tends to go with the flow in most situations. Lil Reno of LSO Films directed the music video for the song while she did the final edit of the video. She said she loved the experience and is eager to do it again for more of her songs in the future.
She also said she enjoyed working with her sister who served as a producer for some of the music on her EP. She comes from a musical family – her older twin sisters are artists in the Portland area and her Uncle Rudy is a jazz player in Los Angeles. Angelynn said she’s eager to continue the family legacy and put her own name out there as a musician to pay attention to.
