It's his birthday today and singer/songwriter/rapper Dylan Joel has celebrated by gifting US new tunes. He's announced that on March 29th we'll be getting a brand new collection of songs from him called You Were Made To Blossom.
Inspired by early 2000s R&B and hip-hop like Timbaland, Justin Timberlake and Pharrell, the collection will host singles we've heard already like Done Witchu and Hollering Love, as well as the song he dropped last Friday, Not Allowed To.
As for the overarching concept behind the album, Dylan says it's about believing in yourself.
"It’s a message that needs to be pushed in this day and age. There is so much self-doubt going on right now and it’s amplified pretty easily by social media. To me, the idea of blossoming is to love ourselves, not in an arrogant or comparative way, but in a way that brings out the best in us. That’s a real hard fight and one that I feel we need to talk about more often. Hence the title.”
