Brady Watt ft. Topaz Jones & Ro James - Black & White

Brady Watt connects with Topaz Jones and Ro James on his new single ‘Black & White’.

Upon moving to NY from Boston, Brady Watt was tapped by Dame Dash as his musical director and thereafter contributed to a string of celebrated releases including Curren$y’s Pilot Talk 1 & II, 24 Hour Karate School, and Murs’ Love & Rockets; and playing alongside the likes of Mos Def and Jay Electronica.

After premiering “Journey’s Lead By Intuition” with Uproxx in February, Brady Watt unveils his new soulful single, “Black & White” featuring Topaz Jones & Ro James with Billboard.  “Ro and I have been friends since my first year in New York” Brady stated.  “We’ve also been collaborating since then, from backing him up onstage at countless artist showcases in the early days to producing records leading to a deal with RCA. I needed an emcee to breathe more lyrical content into it, but it really had to be the right fit.

Around that time I discovered Topaz Jones on Spotify and was really diggin his style. “Black & White” was conceived in Malibu during the same stay when I wrote “Youth In Revolt” and a grip of others for the album. I wrote that guitar part and recorded the cello arrangement. When Ro and I linked back up in NY I laid it down, cut the hook and built the beat around it.”

In this “Black & White” portrait, the initial endorphin rush of a budding relationship creates a luminescent bright magenta hue. Suddenly, what once had masterpiece potential becomes tainted by real life obstacles creating real time distractions and distance.  Walls are thrown up and the picture becomes irrevocably distorted. Alas, just as love fades, so to do colors.
