Hip Hop’s rising trailblazer, Blxst has returned from a plethora of success with a new music video for his track “Never Was Wrong”. Debuting at #90 on the Billboard 200 chart, his rise has been non-stop. The true undeniable core of Blxst’s soulful sound is the way he can be so nonchalantly cool, yet impactful. You begin to discover Blxst’s more vulnerable side through his new visuals for “Never Was Wrong”. The video gives a peak into a modern day perspective of LA’s black upper echelon partying at a Beverly Hills mansion. You may recognize a few familiar faces such as Buddy & others who add the right amount of swagger to this full production. The lighting and camera angles shows everyone in a very glamorous demeanor and instantly transports you into Blxst’s world, filled with diamonds, beautiful people and a full jazz band accompanied by soft 808s. The release of this video comes shortly after his recent mixtape, “Before You Go” and is the perfect continuation to Blxst’s story.
Blxst has architected a new era of West Coast hip-hop and culture by hand as not only a rapper, singer, songwriter, and producer but also as a creative visionary who mixes, masters, and self-edits his own videos and artwork. Back in high school, the South-Central native taught himself how to produce and record, going on to collaborate with YG, Mozzy, Snoop Dogg, Nas, Rick Ross, and more. Following a string of buzzing singles in 2019, he forged an ironclad creative partnership with Bino Rideaux on their first critically acclaimed Sixtape. During 2020, he partnered with Red Bull Records and unleashed his solo debut EP, No Love Lost, to unanimous tastemaker praise. Following release, it rose to #3 on the Billboard Heatseekers Albums Chart, #6 on the Rolling Stone Breakthrough 25 Chart, and #11 on the Trending 25 Chart, while the single “Overrated” soared to #15 at Urban radio.
The deluxe edition of No Love Lost yielded the gold certified smash “Chosen” (feat. Ty Dolla $ign and Tyga), posting up over 300 million streams in less than a year while breaking into the Billboard Hot 100 and #1 at Rhythmic and Urban radio. Pigeons & Planes crowned it “one of the best projects” of the year. Kickstarting 2021, he dropped the Just For Clarity two-pack and Sixtape 2 with Bino Rideaux. He also earned the Billboard Rising Star Award, becoming the first artist to ever receive the honor at the 2021 Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Summit. With excitement at a boiling point, he sold out his entire fall 2021 No Love Lost Tour in ten seconds. Selected as a Breakthrough Artist on Amazon Music, a 2021 BET Hip Hop Awards and BET Soul Train nominee, and pegged as an “Artist to Watch” by Billboard, Complex, Pigeons & Planes, UPROXX, and more, he continues to traffic in a lane of his own, bringing the game with him.
