T Star Verse finds life ‘Balance’ with debut LP
CHICAGO, IL – If there’s something most people of the world want to find today, it’s balance in life. Chicago-based Hip Hop artist T Star Verse has the perfect LP to suit that mood. The 10-song project is a versatile album that reflects self identity, positive moments and overall finding that balance in life. With singles like “Levitate,” “Keep it Trill” and “Shadow,” T Star has captured a vibe that’s perfect for today’s cultural climate. And with vocals that will not quit combined with a unique sound and style, this fast-rising young artist has something that is sure to go global.
T Star Verse fell in love with Hip Hop at age 12. Her uncle was an independent music maker and having a natural gift at writing, she was encouraged by him to begin writing songs. She soon began winning talent showcases and awards and performing at some of the biggest venues in Chicago. When she became a student at Columbia College in Chicago, she became the first freshman to headline the school’s historic Manifest Festival. Shortly thereafter, she created the T Star Collection – a high end fashion line for men and women. All the while she was experimenting with different styles of music, trying to find her signature sound. With her debut album “Balance,” she’s ready to show the world who she is and what she has to offer the music industry.
“This album is pretty versatile, just like me,” she said. “It’s still Hip Hop but with different beats and styles – and how I rap is pretty versatile itself. At the end of the day, I hope people see my music as authentic. Hip Hop was originally founded on authenticity and through time, I feel like we’ve been losing that. Too many artists today are going with the trends even if they don’t live a specific lifestyle. They’ll adopt that persona because they know that’s how they’ll get that money. But I want to be known for being authentic and not speaking about things I don’t know. It’s real-ness. Anything I go through I’ll put in my music, and I’m not gonna sugar-coat anything. Along the way you’ll hear my values and standards and my story and stories of people around me. I’m making positive, feel-good music that sheds a light on deeper things. That’s what this album is all about – bringing balance to all those things in our lives.”
The debut single from the project is “Levitate.” It’s a pure Hip Hop song with a beat that will make listeners bop their heads and could even be something played in the clubs. With lyrics that encourage listeners to rise above any doubt or hate, this song is T Star “flexin’ on ‘em a little bit.” The hook, in particular, is catchy and will have people repeating it long after first hearing it. A music video for the single is already out on T Star’s YouTube channel.
“Keep It Trill” is another song gaining a lot of attention. More of a Dance Club record, the song is simply about going out and having fun. T Star said she raps instructions on certain dance moves throughout the song and hopes that it’ll become a track that eventually people will learn the dance moves to and create a positive trend around the world. It’s the perfect song for the summer, she said.
“Balance” is currently available across all streaming platforms, and music videos for many of the songs are slated to drop later this year.
