Charles Hamilton Prepares Summer Release

Charles Hamilton Prepares Summer Release

April 29, 2015 | D&L

Artist Charles Hamilton’s new track, ‘New York Raining’, has been on heavy rotation since its debut on Empire.

Now with the hit US show having its launch on UK television last night, it’s time to talk new music from the rapper.

The UK’s Rita Ora can be heard on the track and looking very iconic in the music video, as she revealed it was Charles’ good story telling and his ability to have a message in each of his songs that drew her to him as an artist. After all, he does deem his music to be a celebration of life, so why not share positivity at the same time?

“It felt like New York needed a new anthem, so I thought this was the perfect one,” Rita said.

Since he burst onto the scene with ‘Brooklyn Girls’ back in ’08, the New York native has been focusing on his ability to freestyle ahead of his new EP release, thought to be coming this Summer. So can we expect any more odes to NY? Perhaps he’ll showcase his ability to rap and freestyle on the track, and how about those features?

One thing’s for sure, we’re loving the sound of this anthem.
