Looking to be the next breakthrough from Canada, rising vocalist Bloke Young has been carving a lane for himself. Boasting natives such as Roy Woods, Belly, Jazz Cartier and more, Canada has kept Hip-Hop fans consistently fed and that's without mentioning megastars like Drake, Tory Lanez and PARTYNEXTDOOR. Looking to take the buzz a step further and join the ranks, Bloke checks in with us to drop off his engaging new video for, "Temptations."
At first listen, the immediate quality that endears you to Bloke is his infectious vocal tone. Sounding like a direct descendant of The Weeknd, his harrowing vocal runs and knack for melodic progression make this an easily enjoyable record, despite the content. Speaking on the temptations of life that can get in the way of success, he simultaneously turns that notion on his head and questions if these temptations even lead to genuine happiness. Doing this over evocative production from Josh Bishop, one of the other substantial qualities is how the song perfectly lines up with the video. Taking place in an abandoned church, the video finds Bloke seemingly searching for the answers to the aforementioned questions, only to be tempted by multiple distractions.
With Bloke's debut EP, Conversations With Nicki, around the corner, "Temptations," is the perfectly way to get familiar with the Canadian vocalist. Take a peek at the video above.
