Elijah Blake – ‘Vendetta’ (Feat. J. Cole)
Elijah Blake may not have a certified hit under his belt (yet), but the crooner has been slowly emerging as one of R&B’s best new voices. 2012 was a fruitful year for the 22-year-old Florida native: he guested on Rick Ross’ ‘Presidential,’ as well as tracks for The Game and Keyshia Cole; signed a management deal with Roc Nation on top of his existing deal with Def Jam; and released the ‘Bijoux 22‘ EP.
Currently prepping his debut solo album, ‘Songs About Melody,’ under the guise of his mentor No I.D. (he’s produced for Kanye West, Jay-Z and Common — you might have heard of him), 2013 isn’t looking too bad for Mr. Blake, either. Especially when you land an appearance from one of hip-hop’s brightest stars — not to mention another of No I.D.’s understudies — on your new single.
Produced by and featuring J. Cole, take a listen to Elijah Blake’s ‘Vendetta’ below.
