After over 1.3 million streams for his last single IN THE PAINT, Hip-Hop artist Canyon makes a much anticipated return with FRIENDS. Never one to be typecast or boxed in by others’ expectations, Canyon this time switches lanes and explores a more laid back vibe and the world of relationships rather than the beast he unleashed with In The Paint.
Inspired by the words of War’s 1975 hit ‘Why Can’t We Be Friends’, Canyon changes the narrative to reflect a love story; posing the question if lovers can also have a deep friendship. Consequently, FRIENDS is a more relaxed sound that brings up memories of artists such as Kid Cudi, Mac Miller, or Tyler the Creator. With an unquestionable flow that is supported by a positive bassline and bounce that will appeal to audiences everywhere, FRIENDS really does establish Canyon’s versatility and skills on the mic.
Melodic, infectious and a tune for the masses, the song is totally in lock step with his real life as his girlfriend appears in the supporting video. Determined to share the reality of his world to his audience, his truth is the only thing he wants fans to see.
With an album titled MEANWHILE already in the wings, 2022 will see Canyon’s career go from strength to strength. Incorporating the talents of Raekwon, Jadakiss, Slim Thug, Big K.R.I.T., Kxng Crooked (FKA Crooked I from Slaughterhouse), Dizzy Wright, Lou from Paradise and more, the album is destined to achieve further greatness for the artist.
In the meantime however, his legion of dedicated fans will have to be content with the brilliance of FRIENDS. A continuation of the high standards he sets for himself, FRIENDS is a song that will bond the artist with fans forever.
