Ready to get all up in your feels and fall in love with one of the smoothest up-and-coming artists in the R&B scene? Time for The Weeknd to move over and pass the mic to Che Ecru. If you haven’t heard of this talented Boston based singer before, you should definitely wake up. Ever since Ecru joined the Soulection family, he has been on our radar. At only 20 years old he produces, writes, sings, designs and mixes every track all by himself.
6 months ago he released his debut album Buries, in which he sings all about finding love through pain. Now Che Ecru is providing our souls with a new track called Thii. Right from the very first moment, his falsetto voice grabs your attention. The melodic piano blended over the lush beat makes it a perfect track for late nights. Believe us, you’ll even pause your Netflix show with bae to put him on repeat.
His work isn’t limited to mellow tunes though. Scrolling through his SoundCloud profile, we stumbled upon Pink Slip, which has more of a dancehall-feel to it. In another track, Benefits, there’s even some rapping involved. Even though he has been compared to artists like Bryson Tiller and The Weeknd before, we believe his unique voice and his versatility really make him stand out. We highly suggest you head over to his SoundCloud page ASAP and vibe along with us!
