Today, 20-year-old producer, rapper and singer Caye partners with Billboard Magazine to exclusively premiere his chill, feel good single “With U”. With its dreamy Caribbean vibes and soulful melodies, Caye is clearly high on love as he tops off the playful track with his smooth falsetto and gritty raw verses.
Caye explains, “I’ve always found it interesting how people can be so hesitant to be their true selves in front of strangers. In this song, I ask if we can break down those walls and be ourselves. Maybe even consider what it’s like to live in one another’s shoes.”
“Caye Lays Down Refreshingly Energetic Verses And Bursting Melodies” – HipHopDX
Born and raised in Boston, Caye became a talented multi-instrumentalist at an early age. His fondness for a variety of genres (from Jazz to Hip-Hop and everything in between) melted with his skills on the drums, steel pan, guitar and piano. This set the stage for the essence of his music: smooth verses and seductive production.
The 20-year-old entered USC Thornton School of Music’s Pop Music Program during the Fall of 2016 and has already created a buzz for himself on the college circuit with over 10 Million streams from Spotify and SoundCloud. This summer Vevo selected Caye as for their artist dscvr series. Caye also premiered his debut music video “LA Life” that was inspired by his big move from Boston to Hollywood. The feel-good summer jam was praised by HipHopDX for “its smooth and rich acoustics…refreshingly energetic verses…and bursting melodies.”
Caye released seven tracks on his mixtape Shades Pt. 1 in October 2016. It included his hit “Coma,” that has over 5 million plays. Caye has sold out 500 capacity venues in Boston like Brighton Music Hall. He’ll play Lost Lake Festival in Phoenix, AZ with Chance The Rapper, Major Lazer and The Killers on October 22nd. He’s finishing up a new album called Pink Tree Paradise.
