Up-and-coming artists are dropping fresh content from left to right. But when it comes to collaborating with top producers, like music producer Bkorn, R&B singer, songwriter, and producer, Hunter Powell is coming in hot.

If you haven’t been living under a rock, for sure you’ve been vibing with Hunter’s most listened song on Spotify “Mai Tai” with over 66,000 plays. Hunter first released his single “Weakness” in 2017 and he has consistently put out more music since then. His latest release was his single “Numb Night” in 2019 last December just after he released his second album “Brain Broke”. And this year, he teases his fans on Instagram that he’s putting out more content soon. 

Last February 16, Hunter teased his newest EP in an Instagram post that shows a photo of heart-shaped baby blue petals. Hunter also released an exclusive look at his upcoming EP on his Instagram and shares a 30-second version of one of the tracks. It starts with a stirring piano melody then followed with hip-hop beats that will surely leave his listeners hooked.  The track also has a visual counterpart with baby blue petals that forms a heart and then are slowly withering away. For sure, there is meaning in the visuals. What about the flowing of the petals away from the heart? Well, we’ll all hear it soon from the rest of the tracks in the EP.

The five-track record shows off his smoky vocals and songs that are perfectly layered with beautiful, R&B,  hip-hop composition produced into chart-topping hit songs. This EP is a fresh collaboration with top American record producer, Bkorn. Bkorn is best known for producing for Travis Scott, DJ Khaled, Chris Brown, Lil Kim, Chinx, Lil Wayne, and many more. 

It’s a first for Hunter since he has been making and producing his own music for the past years. But for him, this collaboration is definitely gonna take his music to the next level. This latest release is his biggest one yet and it’s something fans are willing to lose sleep for. 

Hunter writes songs that are real, genuine personal experiences about love, heartbreak, and the complexities of modern love. His lyrics are something we’re all familiar with. Every rhythm captivates the listener with its subtle undertones of sadness and emotional vulnerability. 

With his upcoming, there is so much in store for him in the music industry. A chart-topping hit, a viral song listened to by everyone on the internet or something his fan will fall in love with. Whatever that is, the future is bright for Hunter. His lyrics, synth-pop, and voice have all what it takes to be one of the brightest and biggest stars in the music industry.

Listen to his songs and find out for yourself what we’re talking about.

His songs are now available for streaming on Spotify, Amazon Music, and Apple Music.
