Vancouver Artist $hAH releases his debut album with a bang! Before we dive into the project which is more like a beautifully crafted 7-Single Poem by Shayan Eftekhari, we must speak on his Smash Single “Formula.”
Filmed by TiV Productions and directed by Brazil’s very own Raphael “Zectrix” Regis, this video captures the song perfectly; the dancers were a solid touch. This is the type of song you want to dance to and club to. $hah’s vocals with the pounding instrumental takes you to a euphoric positive state. We spoke to the film producer Kane Dabir and he mentioned,
“$hah is a super unique artist .. so we could have taken this video in multiple directions, but ultimately Zectrix, Paolo and I wanted to showcase a flirty fun video to match the quality of the song.”
Check out the video after the Jump.
The album starts with “Formula” and “The One” which are two club bangers; if I am trying to impress a girl with my music taste, I will definitely flex with those songs. Home ft. Psyah was a pleasant switch up from the beginning which focuses on a guy’s insecurities towards women; worth a listen; “Used to” is a solid transition from home and possibly the best written song on the project. $hah shows his hip-hop influence with tracks like “Company” and “Faraway” with hip hop drums and R&B style singing. The final track of the LP “Boys Don’t Cry” shows $hah in a very vulnerable state
The Album ends with my favourite song “Make it” which features Superstar Hip-Hop Artist Kresnt. Kresnt has been killing the Hip-Hop scene with his smash single “In Your Place” and his follow up melodic hit “D.Y.D.” $ha has recently signed a deal with the Lunar Cycle Label and we can expect more tracks from the two artists.
