Out now via Empire and his Save Our Soul imprint, the rising R&B/Neo-soul singer-songwriter Just Chase has released his highly-anticipated mixtape Killing Roses. The 8-track tape delivers a soundtrack to love and city fantasy demonstrating Just Chase’s unique upbeat hypnotic flow and dancehall influence.
Killing Roses features two bonus songs “Lately” (Tyrese Remix) and “Scene Ting” (Busta Rhymes Remix) on Soundcloud. The project’s release date commemorates his mother’s birthday, who passed away in November 23, 2011, the day after Just Chase’s Birthday. He explains that without his mother’s musical influences he wouldn’t be the artist he is today, so he honors her and celebrates her life with the release of Killing Roses.
“I release my mixtape on my mother’s birthday, for those who are wondering why am releasing it on Sunday it means the world to me and I know she’s smiling down shining right now couldn’t have picked a better day R.I.P happy birthday mother love you,” expresses Just Chase.
This tape comes off the back of two major singles “EGO” and “Between Us”. His breakout track “EGO” has risen to the #3 spot on Billboard’s Hot Single Sales Chart and is making waves across U.S. and Canadian radio in major cities, with the music video release being described as a dreamscape that perfectly captures the aesthetic to the astral soundscape.
Just Chase, known within musical circles as “The Melody King,” is an artist full of surprises: He can create melodies within seconds of hearing a beat, all without putting a pen to paper. And that’s only part of what makes the Nova Scotian-reared upstart’s story fascinating. Just Chase’s artistry is seeped with the influences of ‘90s and early 2000s soul makers like Jodeci, Dru Hill, Tank and Tyrese. His daring spirit for a new-age flavour, infused with a futuristic soul vibe captivates audiences internationally.
Equipped with an impressive vocal range and equally remarkable production credits, Just Chase released his breakout single “Ego” earlier this year to critical acclaim and over 10 million plays online. In addition to heading up his own company Save Our Soul, as well as recently signing a publishing deal with Pulse Music Group.
