Masego Teams with Big Boi & JID to Release a Day In The Life Style Visual for new single… “Garden Party”

Singer/Saxophonist Masego, dubbed the ‘trap house jazz singer,” shows us what he was up to during his recent trip to the ATL with the release of this official video for “Garden Party.”

Introducing Masego who has been lovingly dubbed “The Trap House Jazz Singer” after the seminal success of his “Lady, Lady” LP and like-named single of 2018, Masego is also an accomplished saxophone player whom no less than GQ magazine has named “the foremost sax player of a generation.” 

All things considered, it was the saxophone that kickstarted Masego’s career. Masego, born Micah Davis, the son of two pastors, was born in Janaica but moved to Virginia at the age of 8, he had exposure to many instruments early on and has been playing instruments and singing in church since he was a child, but it was only in 2011 that Masego’s music started making waves online. What started as him posting saxophone remixes to SoundCloud snowballed into him sharing his own tracks via a debut, The Pink Polo EP with DJ Medasin, in 2016 to an already established, highly engaged audience. The debut set spawned the single “Girls That Dance” and brought the beginnings of much attention to his genre-bending take on jazz, which he calls “trap house jazz” which Mesago referenced in an recent interview… “It’s ignorance meets eloquence, an abrasive energy with some pretty coolness,” whatever it is, it has proven to have wide-ranging appeal and become a springboard to success.

Masego’s journey has taken him both far and wide since his 2016 EP debut, and his cachet acceptance and numbers have grow exponentially in those 5 years with each succeeding release, his Colors session has surpassed 55 million hits on YouTube, while the filmed session with French producer FKJ for “Tadow” has more than 98 million. The supporting tour for his debut album, ‘Lady, Lady,’ which was released in September 2018, has seen his popularity explode and seen Masego play to packed out auditoriums across the globe.

Masego has accomplished a lot in a relatively small amount of time and at only 28 years old (June 8, 1993), and his artistry affirmed and little to prove, the future can only be even brighter for The acclaimed Trap House Jazz Singer.

The year was 2005 and the event was the 36th Annual NAACP Image Awards, everyone knew Prince was being honored after being named the winner of that years award, everyone present in the venue felt the electricity in the air, and even those at home watching on TV felt it, and knew it was gonna be special. Then contender and future president, Sen. Barack Obama & wife, Michelle were in the audience. Nobody knew how special until it was all over.

Prince managed to pack a whole concert into this 17 or so minute set, something only a very few artists are capable of doing.
