[NEW YORK, NY – MAY 1, 2020] Today, Toronto native rapper and disruptor KILLY returns with his brand new single and music video entitled “Sailor Moon.”
Get it HERE via Epic Records and watch the official music video HERE.
Heavily anticipated by his devoted legion of fans, he has teased “Sailor Moon” on social media for some time. On the track, frenetic production moves at a breakneck speed with KILLY’s bold and scorching bars. The visual, which he directed himself, manages to keep up the pace as well. The clip cuts together blissful smoked-out dreams and sweeping solo shots of the artist rapping in an ornate empty luxury mall and (literally) breaking the ground beneath him in a surreal world.
KILLY shows no signs of stopping or slowing down either. He recently unveiled the song “VV’s”, the lead single from Toronto-based Hip Hop platform 6ixBuzz’s compilation album, which Complex dubbed “splashy.” Its predecessor “Vendetta,” which KILLY closed 2019 with, also received praise with Highsnobiety crowning him “one of the most emphatic young rappers around.”
Meanwhile, last year’s explosive Light Path 8 projected garnered a nomination for “Best Rap Recording” at the 2020 JUNO Awards (Canada’s GRAMMY-equivalent), making him a four-time nominee. He continues to affirm his status as one of the culture’s biggest and boldest breakthrough talents.
Stay tuned for a lot more from KILLY very soon. Take a trip with “Sailor Moon” now.
After bursting onto the scene with his disruptive single “Killamonjaro” in 2017, the Bajan-Filipino artist has quickly become one of music’s most exciting artists to watch. On the heels of the hit, his debut project Surrender Your Soul was released last year to acclaim via his Secret Sound Club label, giving his growing fanbase a sizeable taste of a unique knack for melody, fully-immersive creative vision and personal lyrics that speak to the highs and lows of his journey. His reach has continued to grow steadily: by the end of 2018, he’d attained almost 200 million listens on Spotify alone, and brought his music to audiences across the globe on his “Surrender Your Soul” World Tour. Capping off a break-out year, KILLY released a five-track EP entitled KILLSTREAK to his ever-growing fanbase, received three 2019 JUNO Award nominations and garnered two Platinum-certified singles. He followed these accolades with the release of his 2019 project Light Path 8, which received attention and acclaim from the likes of Complex, Hypebeast, Genius, Lyrical Lemonade, VICE, Billboard and more, and toured with the likes of NAV, Young Thug and Machine Gun Kelly. As of today, the budding superstar has accumulated more than 800 million streams across all platforms globally and is Toronto’s biggest rap export since Drake. With his recent signing to Epic Records, KILLY is set to blaze thru 2020, focused on realizing his vision and extending his global reach – an Icon in the making.
