“FACES” – THE LATEST SINGLE RELEASE FROM THE UPCOMING ALBUM ALMETHA’S SON
SwaVay, a native of Atlanta’s bubbling rap scene, drops live acoustic performance to new single “FACES”, available on all streaming platforms via Def Jam Recordings/Giant Music. Watch HERE. “FACES” is the recent single release from ALMETHA’S SON, SwaVay’s forthcoming project, release details to be announced soon. “FACES” is the follow-up to SwaVay’s label debut earlier this summer with “JUGG” single and video.
“A song has never come to me as easy as this,” SwaVay said. “Although this song has no context really to my album, it’s one of the songs I’m the proudest of. When you play this song, make love to your lover, and make some ugly faces while doing it.”
Powered by hard-earned confidence that his own genre-traversing style is ready for hip-hop’s – and music’s – biggest stages, SwaVay arrives at the industry’s #1 hip-hop destination with the depth and dexterity that is typical of Dogwood City’s greatest. His brand of soulful trap fusion has earned cosigns and collaborations from artists across genres and sounds, from multi-platinum producer Metro Boomin, to U.K. pop/electronic/R&B auteur James Blake.
In 2019, SwaVay shared a Grammy® nomination for his contribution to “Elevate” (with DJ Khalil, Cordae, Denzel Curry, and Trevor Rich), from the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse soundtrack. In 2021, SwaVay appeared on “Frozen” (with Dreamville Records’ J.I.D), a track from Blake’s LP, Friends That Break Your Heart.
Inspired by the likes of Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, and Drake, as well as golden-era greats like Jay-Z, Nas, and Snoop Dogg – SwaVay dropped his first solo, Poet Talk (2012), while still in school. More indie releases followed, including TRVPLANTA (2015), and Before Eye Die (2016), as SwaVay found his place amid Atlanta’s competitive trap scene.
