The road to Conway The Machine’s Shady Records debut album has been eventful and incredibly redemptive. His prelude project, From King To A GOD (2020), was universally hailed and received “Best Album Of The Year” accolades from influential outlets such as the New York Times, Complex, Pitchfork, Noisey, Hotnewhiphop and Uproxx among many other esteemed outlets. Conway and Griselda’s run in 2020 was so epic, they took up acreage on Jay-Z’s Yearly Tidal Playlist, Stereogum had to create an entirely separate year end playlist just to chronicle their greatness and Conway capped off the year with his inventive NPR Tiny Desk Concert.
Building anticipation for God Don’t Make Mistakes, Conway’s 2021 has included a rousing performance of “Scatterbrain” on ‘The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon’ featuring J.I.D. and Ludacris, the honor of contributing a verse to, “Hood Blues,” which was selected as the lead-single for DMX’s posthumous album Exodus, a headlining performance at the Jay-Z curated ‘Made In America’ Festival and a standout performance (“Keep My Spirit Alive”) on Kanye West’s DONDA. Further, 8-14-21 was ordained as “Conway The Machine Day” in Buffalo” for his continued charitable contributions to the city.
“Griselda keep winning/you don’t know how to stop it-do you/in the end, I’m going to be on top as usual.” With his Shady Records debut album on the horizon, Conway The Machine releases the album’s lead-single, “Piano Love,” which is produced by The Alchemist. “Piano Love” is now available at all DSP’s. The anticipation for the release of “Piano Love” kicked off last weekend, as ESPN’s popular syndicated duo of Jalen (Rose) & Jacoby made a special trip to Buffalo for Conway’s hometown performance show, before taking in the Buffalo Bills game with Griselda and breaking tables with the “Bills Mafia.” Conway discussed the epic weekend, and his new single with Jalen & Jacoby during his appearance on the show on Thursday (10-7).
“With “Piano Love” I am giving my fans what they love me for, grimy raps on an insane beat from The Alchemist; something magical that sets the tone for the rest of God Don’t Make Mistakes” Conway The Machine asserts. “If you’ve been a Conway fan from day one, you’re going to absolutely love the first single.”
