Lawoyne’s new EP ‘Black Roses’ offers luscious lyrics for the ladies
ELKHART, IN – Darion Antwon Lawoyne Williams has always been an entertainer. Growing up in Elkhart, Indiana, he remembers singing songs or making music with his mother multiple times. She was the first one to introduce him to the power of a good song. However, when he was 13 it was his cousin who introduced him to the idea of writing and producing his own songs. He took a song that he’d written a few years earlier at only age 9 and went into the studio with his cousin to do his first recording. He hasn’t looked back since.
Today, Lawoyne entertains the masses as a fast-rising musician who’s new EP, “Black Roses”, is an R&B powerhouse that is lighting flames of passion for listeners all over the U.S. Self-described as “sex music,” the songs on Lawoyne’s new EP are not for the faint of heart. They’re very sexual and very explicit, and as such they’re perfect for “having sex to”.
“A lot of people have said I have that 90ʼs style R&B with a modern twist,” Lawoyne said. “The name of the project comes from an idea of a sexually committed relationship with someone without any strings attached but with certain benefits of an actual exclusive relationship. There’s no emotional attachment. A red rose would imply love and the perception associated with that. But the creative idea of giving a black rose implies that there’s no love involved.”
The debut single from the EP, “Breath of Fresh Air,” already has a music video in the works that should drop by mid-May. Shot entirely on a Red camera, the picture quality is of the highest level and further emphasized that fans who love the song will be really impressed with the visuals that are soon to follow. Like most of his songs, Lawoyne also produced the beat for “Breath of fresh” and “M.V.P”. He also helped mix and master “Black Roses” and “Running Circles”.
Though “Black Roses” is solely an R&B project, Lawoyne is a multi-faceted musician. Known also for his unique flows as a rapper, he said he’s confident that his own unique sound and style is one that will separate him from a crowded music industry.
“I don’t try to copy anyone,” he said. “I don’t even like to consider it. I don’t like to listen to popular music today because I don’t want it to subconsciously alter my sound. That’s why people have told me I have a unique cadence and subject matter. When you hear me, you wouldn’t find anyone who compares as far as style and cadence and versatility. A lot of people know me for my rapping, even though on this project it’s all singing. But I’m a whole different person when I’m rapping. When I’m singing I aim all my subject matter, attention and energy to the female. When I’m rapping, people will feel like there’s a little thuggish side to it. I have lyrics and punch lines and you might have to rewind my raps to get what I’m saying because it’s very intellectual. You have to pay attention to what I’m saying, though I also have songs that are just fun for the sake of being fun. More than anything, I want to explore different genres as often as I can.”
