51B is a New York Native combining multiple genres in his new single “NO ILY”. He mixes pop elements with rap, country and he has even performed with EDM artists in the past. 51B is an independent artist but is no stranger to the industry, opening for acts such as Juice WRLD and Jaydayoungen on tours.
51B’s style stands out among other artists. He has the ability to create 2-4 different flows and melodic variety that makes him sound like a separate artist on his own record. 51B also crosses genres. “NO ILY” begins with a catchy smooth hook that sounds similar to contemporary pop/country hits. The hook goes into a hip-hop sounding bridge which leads into a quick-paced, pure rap verse. 51B sounds like two different artists within the span of one song.
The rap verses showcase a more aggressive side of 51B. The lyrics express an arrogant, non-emotional character that is ironic given the melodic, love-song sounding hook. “NO ILY” is about a man expressing his inability to express himself. Even though it may sound like a love song, its lyrics prove otherwise, which matches the overall content of the lyrics and theme of the song. 51B is both expressive and versatile. He is an artist bringing a new sound that resonates with fans of multiple genres.
