NEW ARTIST SPOTLIGHT*:
UPCOMING ARTIST ON THE RISE-- R&B SINGER KHALIF.
PHILLY SOUL SINGER RELEASES HOT SINGLE
"STOP CALLING ME"
Words by: Da Professor.
The city of
is known for producing many talented singers, and R&B/Hip-Hop singer/songwriter Khalif is keeping the city of brotherly love on the musical map with his smooth and powerful vocals, and his talented songwriting skills, which is clearly demonstrated on his current single “Stop Calling Me” which is destined to be a hit on radio. The single tells a story about a female who didn’t show him the time of day when he struggling to become a success, but now is trying to holla at him because he has notoriety and has money coming in, and he’s letting her know that she had her chance, but she blew it and needs to stop calling him. (Sounds like the answer to Destiny’s Child 1999 hit “Bug A Boo). -- What makes this single are the beats, keyboard performance, his ability to sing lead and harmonize, the call and response between him and the background vocalists during the second verse and bridge and the deep yet creative lyrics.

"Why you keep calling me name
This person’s one of the same
See girl, it’s such a damn shame
That you keep running this game
So won’t you back off of me
Baby girl just let me breathe
Don’t want no parts can’t you see
So won’t you stop calling me."
Khalif’s single is great song to bump in your rides, and a great song to use as background music on your voicemail to inform former lovers and associates that you moved on and no longer have interest in them. - Da Professor
It's very rare that we get to see a brother with unique skills and actually have the guts be an original in this competitive industry. Khalif is definitely an artist that you can expect to see years to come with his talented vocal arrangements & sex appeal .. I think the he gonna be appealed to the masses. Not only is he a experimentalist he represents what the industry is missing in my eyes "Soul"!
With his tracks " Can't Tell Me" "Crazy Love" he talks about his love for his women although he wants to leave and is stuck with the desicion of letting her go.
I’m looking forward to hearing more from this promising and talented
native. - SR. Philadelphia
