Since blowing up the scene in early 2019 with his uproarious debut single “Choppa”, Keilam has been making a name for himself as one of Canada’s premier musical talents, moving between hip-hop, trap, rap and R&B with preternatural dexterity and confidence. His latest release, the hard-hitting “Out the Mud”, goes deep into how the artist pulled himself out of the mud to find success in music through his own ambition and drive alone. A testament to keeping your head down and pushing towards your goals, “Out the Mud” is a stone-cold banger built on truth and inspiration. Vocalising over a piano-led beat that’s as emotional as it is heavy, Keilam lays down lyrics that urge listeners to find strength in adversity.
“This release is important to me because it lets my listeners know if you work hard for things you want to accomplish in life, you can achieve anything, the sky is the limit.”
Keilam has been steadily raising his profile throughout 2020 with releases such as “Fake Love”, “FACT” and “Cold Heart” progressively expanding his fanbase. Though his elastic vocal style recalls the delivery of Young Thug, Keilam has no doubts about his originality, stating that “I truthfully don’t compare myself to anyone. It’s me against me.” With a bold, visionary sound of his own and ambitious plan to dominate 2021 with monthly single releases and a full-length project, Keilam is set to become a major player on the North American hip-hop scene over the coming year.
“My favourite thing about making music is how it lets me express myself. I am not a person who shares my feelings or thoughts with really anyone. So, when I hear a beat, I just lay it all out there.”
“Out the Mud” is available on Spotify and Apple Music.
