Stalley is set to release his new album, in the meantime he drops this “Red Light” single.
Critically acclaimed Ohio rapper Stalley returns with his new full-length album via his partnership with Mello Music Group entitled “Somebody Up There Loves Me” coming December 6, 2022. To herald the arrival of the record, he just shared the hard-hitting and hypnotic new single “Red Light.” Produced by B.A.M, the track’s jazzy instrumental underscores airtight rhymes from Stalley in between flashes of airy saxophone. Channeling GoodFellas, he reminds, “No, we don’t talk business on the phone,” and warns, “If you owe me, gotta pay before you go.”
To bring this 12-track opus to life, he collaborated with B.A.M as well as KFisha, Namir Blade, MadKeys, and Black Diamond.Somebody Up There Loves Me sees Stalley approach the mic with renewed, refreshed, and revived hunger. It courses through the off-kilter groove of “Dilla Bap” and igniting the hook-y punch of “Stal Where You Been” [feat. Ania Hoo]. Meanwhile, “Escape From Here” hinges on a moment of introspection, and the finale “Fresh Linen” echoes with wisdom over airy guitar.
“My new album is inspired by the 1956 film Somebody Up There Likes Me; the music follows similar themes that are in the movie and me knowing throughout my life and career, I am loved and protected.”
