The just released masterpiece serves as his first project in 2022. ‘Blxckie’ owes production, mixing and mastering credit to London Rhodes. It was pulled off his forthcoming studio album, ‘4Luv’. The outstanding South African music maker and songwriter wasted no time in giving his growing fan-base what they want.
He promises his listeners and music lovers of an amazing new year. lxckie, real name Sihle Sithole has been in the music scene for a while and has been consistent throughout the years. In early 2021, he was named Apple Music’s Up Next artist. The talented act has been constantly tagged as one of the very talented acts to watch out for in the coming years within the music circles. ‘Cold’ is a great piece of music you will want to add to your playlist and play endlessly.
Blxckie’s fans spoke and he listened. The talented singer has announced the release date for his extended play and Mzansi cannot wait. The Kwenzekile rapper surprised his fans with an R&B track titled Cold just before Valentine’s Day that left them asking for more. Fans have praised Blxckie’s genre fluidity as he can literally kill any beat from Amapiano, R&B to hip hop. Following the release of Cold that got major reviews from SA peeps, Blxckie dropped another banger named Umoya. Just like Cold, Umoya received rave reviews from fans on social media.

The rapper has announced that an EP is dropping on the 18th of February. The EP named 4 Luv will be featuring fan favorites Umoya and Cold. Since his debut album, B4now, Blxckie has always delivered quality releases and his new six-track EP is no different. 4Luv explores the rollercoaster of love.
The EP only features muso Nicole Elocin who commands attention with her vocals on fortune teller. Blxckie’s incredible two year run started under unusual circumstances when, during last year’s 21 day lockdown, he found himself stuck in Johannesburg. Cooped up with a few musician friends with nothing to do but make music, the Durbanite and his homies proceeded to release new music almost on a daily basis during an inspired couple of weeks. “It gave me the time I needed to really zone in on making music,” he told Breakroom Africa’s Jade Kelly earlier this year. “And it is what finally pushed me to abandon everything else and just really do it. “I spent those three weeks with Lucasraps, 808Sallie, Shouldyuang, and Yungseruno and we really just dropped music on Soundcloud every day. It was like a little experiment and people went crazy for it,” he said.
Soon afterwards, Blxckie teamed up with Lucasraps to release the pair’s breakout single, “Big Time Shlappa”. That single catapulted him into a national star, and he hasn’t looked back since. After a couple of solid releases at the beginning of 2021, Blxckie kicked off his debut album roll-out with the release of “David” quickly followed by “Ye X4” featuring Nasty C. Both singles struck gold with fans, and “Ye X4” quickly went on to become an inescapable radio and viral TikTok hit. His album “B4Now”, and its subsequent deluxe edition, gave rise to several more excellent singles, most notably “Hold”, “Sika” and “Joy”.
