New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, producer and low key comedian Masego gives a first taste of his forthcoming LP with the smooth, groovy single "Lady Lady." Produced by TDE's Sounwave, the track serves as a re-introduction to the Jamaican-American, who combines jazz inflections with modern crooning soul and hip-hop production.

For Masego, "Lady Lady" means "My Love." Drawing listeners into a grooving, colorful dream world, he offers up a sultry, emotional ode to the radiant powerful women in his life. Singing in a style equal parts rapping, scatting and R&B crooning, Masego weaves together upbeat saxophone riffs, with a deep, echoing bass beat and intoxicating golden synths.

Masego's roots are humble. Born in Kingston, Jamaica and raised the son of two pastors in a Christian community in Virginia, Masego taught himself to play bass, drums, guitar, piano and saxophone in high school. Always playful with his craft, the ambitious prodigy first got his start in the music industry by uploading saxophone remixes of his favorite songs on Soundcloud, and dedicating them to Instagram followers at random.

His addictive, singular sound, which quickly became codified among his international following as "TrapHouseJazz," pulls together "contemporary alternative hip-hop's eclectic future bounce style, the grimy snares and bass of trap, the trance-like synths of house, and the melodic sax found in jazz" (Noisey). As his fanbase grew, Masego caught the ear of Kaytranada, Sounwave, KRS, Medasin, Goldlink and Jazzy Jeff, whose pool house became a recording studio for Masego.

Watch his mesmerizing COLORS session.
Masego's critically acclaimed 2016 release 'The Pink Polo' EP coalesced his unique, progressive sound, which LA Weekly dubbed "the future of hip-hop."

Watch his viral jam-session video with French electronic artist FKJ for his song "Tadow," which has now accrued over 37M views on YouTube.

This summer, Masego will serve as direct support on Leon Bridges' amphitheater tour. Additional headlining tour dates to follow shortly.
