Last August, Lais appeared on OVO sound radio with a passionate love song called “For You.” The song was later remixed by long-time collaborator Skizzy Mars who happened to make an appearance on Lais newest EP 114. This is a particularly significant number for the artist because as he explains “114 is the home I moved to when I first moved to Canada from Virginia, and this EP chronicles the lifestyle I lived out here and the things I experienced while I was at this address, from the relationships and parties to the drugs.”
While he’s been known to be “Toronto’s sad boy” the 22 year fleshes out his emotions in a well-polished manner. 114 exhibits elements of R&B, gospel and soul while remaining effortlessly sultry. Make sure to listen to “Moon & Stars 2,” “Just Us,” and “Cocaine Rain” on the 7 piece EP.
