A talented up-and-coming songwriter and Indie Hip-Hop artist, Knowlij has made his mark with a tender and collaborative debut single. Released on Valentine’s Day and featuring his fiancée Holly, the single is a heartfelt introduction to one of this year’s most impressive and original virtuosos.
A father and fervent writer, Knowlij has developed a chill synergistic blend of Hip-Hop and Pop that is uniquely his own. Behind the music, he’s become known for his inspiring, heartfelt, and passionate lyrics, shining a light on universal struggles and deeply human moments to forge a connection with listeners from around the world. For his debut single, the poetic and poignant “Kites,” Knowlij has delivered a masterclass in softly blended acoustic tones, minimalist production, tender verse, and some gorgeous vocals by his fiancée Holly.
Released in February this year, the single has quickly become something of a phenomenon online, reaching over 16K streams on Spotify alone, while also drawing praise from music sites like Broken 8 Records, Stereo Stickman, Tunepical, and more, who have stated it is “one of the most evocative releases of the year so far, it’s a must for any fan of modern Pop and tender Hip-Hop” and “rhythmically alluring from the outset, “Kites” has the makings of a timeless mainstream single.”
Speaking about the single, Knowlij explained, “Kites is a metaphor for our relationship when the wind blows, and we struggle to weather storms in life. A kite is something that is grounded by someone holding onto it. If you do not hold onto a kite when the wind blows it will blow away.”

Step Into Your Authenticity With Benjamin Lewis’ Song ”KILL”
Imagine how hard it is for some people to be true to themselves. However, there’s a new song called “KILL” by Benjamin Lewis that’s all about being authentic.
Essentially, a powerful Hip-Hop tune that speaks out against the societal pressures that try to make us all fit into the same mold. With this in mind, the up-and-coming singer urges listeners not to let anyone else tell them who to be.
Besides, this adds some important context to the eye-catching music video as it captures the feeling of being trapped and limited in our actions or decisions. Without a doubt, viewers will notice the entire clip serves as a great metaphor that can be quite relatable in these times.
Versatility is his best letter of presentation, therefore, you can expect different genres of music through each jam. Also, the way he portrays his personal struggles and sensibilities to a creative level is worthy of admiration.
In conclusion, whenever someone tries to tell you what to wear, what to say, and even how to act, let your authenticity be the song you sing out loud and never give up to advocate for diversity.
