FOREVER DUE OUT JULY 3RD, 2020
Detroit’s JAY VINCHI and KALEIDO are announcing the release of a unique collaboration on the single “Forever”, dropping July 3, 2020, on all major streaming platforms. Genre blending and bending; familiar ground for both artists, the song embodies an uplifting, positive outlook during these trying times that we have all been thrown into – “Where we are.. ain’t where we’re gunna be. You can’t be down forever”. Combining the strengths of both artists alongside timeless songwriting and sentiments “Forever” carves out its own sound and lane, a truly authentic product of both artists’ multi-genre influenced upbringing in metro Detroit.
‘FOREVER” is the debut single release of a new groundbreaking partnership between JAY VINCHI and “Amplify X”, the first company to offer distribution and label services to artists while allowing their fans to invest into a share of that artists streaming royalties over the course of their careers.
QUOTES FROM ARTISTS:
Christina Chriss of KALEIDO: “We’re living in crazy, trying times right now. Mental health is no joke. “Forever” is our reminder to everyone that we can’t be down forever. We need to look for the good, find the positives, and make the best of where we are right now, while also keeping in mind that there are better days ahead for all of us.”
JAY VINCHI: “Forever” is a single we created to bring positives to those who feel down, out, and hopeless in this state of society. NOTHING can hold us down forever, not the government, economy, depression, or suicidal thoughts. We are powerful beyond our imagination with the ability to manifest whatever life we desire through consistency and a belief in whatever spiritual or higher power you find comfort within.”
