Chicago-based rapper Dave Luv recently dropped his new single/music video, “Some Days,” a track exploring the emotional mutability of being human.

Luv explains, “Life happens one day at a time, and each one is different.”

According to Dave, “Some Days” was designed to convey melancholic feelings, feelings associated with those days when we’re especially vulnerable and sad. Simply because life is made up of variables upon variables, and no one is always cheery.

“Some Days” follows on the heels of “Gunfire,” featuring Reo Cragun, released last year. Where “Gunfire” was more of a party banger blending savors of hip-hop and R&B, “Some Days” rolls out on a moody piano riding a thumping kick drum. Luv’s melodic, rapping flow imbues the rhymes with a poignant singsong flow reminiscent of Post Malone.

The video, directed by Nicholas Jandora, depicts Luv at work, ensconced in a toxic blue office. Wearing a glum clown face, he googles ‘how to be happy’ and consults a self-help book entitled be happy! At home, he moves listlessly, sinking in the quicksand of heartbreak. Kitschy smiley faces materialize throughout the video, underscoring Luv’s absent serenity.

“Some Days” reveals the frozen-in-time sensation of pervasive sorrow fused with a nomadic melody and insightful storytelling.

Rapper Formz’ Music Video Pokes Fun at “Keyboard Warriors” Ahead of Manchester Gig

Rapper and Content Creator Formz takes aim at “Keyboard Warriors” in his new music video. Check it out here…

Hotly tipped UK rap newcomer Formz has quickly emerged through social media where he has
gained over 900K followers with his high energy and relatable music, freestyles and football
related content working with the likes of Google, Pepsi, BBC, The FA and Amazon as well as with some of the UK’s most exciting producers, including Nastylgia, R14 and Roddy Beatz.

His recent single “Keyboard Warriors” is a tongue-in-cheek drill track that pokes good-natured fun at internet trolls. Formz wrote the track after an appearance on Sky Sports to do a summary rap about last season’s Premier League lead to a torrent of abuse on social media.

His natural response was to channel his reaction into his music, so he hopped in the studio with R14 (whose credits include Potter Payper, Clavish, D-Block Europe and Nines) and wrote “Keyboard Warriors”, a shameless flex on people who hide behind their computer screens to troll others.

Check out the music video here:

Off the back of a sold-out debut headline show at London’s Camden Assembly last year, and a nation-wide schools tour, Formz has announced a headline show at The Deaf Institute (The Lodge) in Manchester on February 21st, 2024. The north Londoner, will also be returning to the capital the following month, to headline the O2 Academy Islington on March 14th.

Embodying the message of “Keyboard Warriors”, Formz is currently on a national wide schools tour, talking to thousands of children about his experiences of being an influencer, online abuse and music.

Tickets for the Manchester gig are available from here. For more information, head over to Formz social media here.
