Canada is birthing amazing artists in the industry yearly. The country in itself has become a major stamp in music thanks to various Canadian artists including Drake, The Weeknd and Tory Lanez to name a few.
Speaking of the Weeknd, another artist that comes to mind is Grammy award-winning rapper, songwriter, and producer BELLY, who is adding to his list of hitmakers with his newest single, “Maintain,” featuring NAV. Belly, best known as a signed artist to The Weeknd’s label XO, is making various strides in the industry.
Belly joins forces with his fellow Canadian and XO label mate NAV. Belly credits this single as an anthem about making it through. “We’re all dealing with the same things on different levels” stated, Belly.
“I just spent a cool 60 on my wristwear / Man, I want 10 plain Janes, wanna be like Ric Flair,” he raps. “My blood diamonds cost me blood and sweat and tears / Now my mind and all my stones are crystal clear / Fake watch busters, ain’t never bustin’ me / Every one of my jewelers get paid, they trust in me.”
With only two weeks since the release its approaching 2-million streaming mark on Spotify. The single is part of the amped anticipation of Belly’s project Midnight Zone due to debut later this year. Belly is currently preparing to hit the stage for Coachella 2018.
