Female rappers are in full effect this year; adding to the list of good music (no relation to Kayne West) E-V-E has released an official first single off her new album Lip Lock. Entitled “Make it Out This Town,” the song features amazing front man Gabe Saporta of Cobra Starship, which is a talented band not just for high school students.
This song is impressive considering that it’s a mainstream song to catch the attention of hip hop, as well as pop lovers. Saporta does add a pop feel to the song, and the light tone coming from Eve helps as well. What makes this song a breath of fresh air is the fact that it doesn’t sound forced, or as if it was put out just to get attention. It also is very up lifting for those that need an inspirational song to rely on this year or month.
Rappers tend to do this more than singers or pop artists; it is supposed to help them ‘crossover’ but many times they end up losing more fans, especially the loyal ones. It could be that Eve has been in the music industry for quite a while and knows what it takes to keep her label and her fans happy, or she could have gotten lucky with Saporta. Either way, I think “Make it Out This Town” was a good choice as the first single.
You can listen to the song below.
