My guy Gidi has got to be one of the artists who I’m most excited for this year. I connected with the East Coast native sometime last year after stumbling on his discography and from that moment, I knew I’d end up being a long time supporter of him and his art.

The best artists are those who welcome you into their world through the transparency and honesty of their lyrical content. As a consumer, being able to feel what they feel and see what they see is a pleasure and any artist who gives their fans this opportunity is someone worth believing in. Gidi is that artist and today, the Los Angeles based up and comer is hitting our page for the release of his latest song that came out last week. The new offering called, “Tendencies” is an emotion filled ballad that will hit you right in your face.

When I heard this song for the very first time, I immediately reached out to Gidi and asked him what he was going through that caused him to create such a beautiful song and he explained to me that this track was the product of a breakup. He explained:

“Tendencies was birthed out of survival. I made it after the brutal end of a situation-ship, and needed some form of catharsis to get me through the week. When I made the tune, I’d been listening heavily to D’Angelo’s “Voodoo”, Prince, and I always have Frank Ocean’s “Blonde” on rotation. With the mixture of classic pop phrasing & live instrument arrangements, soul vocal melodies, and funk guitar & slap bass — a spur of the moment attempt to release an emotional burden turned into the realization of my sound. Whilst being written, produced, and recorded over the span of two days, “Tendencies” is my most authentic and strongest release to date.”

From top to bottom, this is my favorite song to date by Gidi and I know that ya’ll will vibe with this one as soon as you press play on it. I’m so hype for everyone to hear it! I’ve attached the Spotify link down below, so give this one a spin and tap in wit Gidi ASAP.
