Ottawa's very own urban group, the Wize, composed of Doressa, JustJaamal, and Jay Baskin are finally releasing their highly anticipated track "SAMO". The track, whose name is inspired by the art of Jean-Michel Basquiat will throw you back to the early 2000's. In it, Doressa's soft but powerful voice throw us into a Mary J. Blige music video from the past. Her voice is endearing and sweet but strong; a note is never missed or sung incorrectly. With Jay Baskin, his husky yet soulful voice serves as contrast to Doressa’s, however, the song would almost feel incomplete without it. The harmonization between the two is just right and it makes you want to kick back and relax to the vibes. Serving as yet another more significant contrast, JustJamaal's meaningful and touching lyrics create a masterpiece that is reminiscent of true late 90’s and early 2000’s hip hop. Paired up against the beat, his raw lyrics and heavy set voice give me Tupac feels however, with a twist.

In regards to the music video, you’ll have to watch it below.

Enjoy the premiere.
