Sudanese-Canadian rapper Mouraine has released a new single that is a bit more mainstream hip hop than we normally cover, but the Edmonton based artist puts his own unique spin on the sound. "Tonight" has that laid back, R&B heavy sound that has taken over music lately, but Mouraine has such a natural charisma that comes through in the song that makes it impossible to resist. "Tonight" will remind you a lot of an artist like Childish Gambino with its accessibility, charm, and unique vibe that makes the song stand out from others in the genre.
Mouraine says of his new song:
"This song runs through a journey from my younger days. My humble beginnings trying to adjust and fit in a new country as a refugee reaching a place where I no longer had to worry about my safety and basic survival needs, but now I had to face new struggles. It's hard to dream big when the system is set up to limit you to a stereotype. being in a dilemma of feeling grateful but still hungry for more."
You can watch the video for "Tonight" below. In Search of Gold is due out May 5, and can be pre-ordered here. For more on Mouraine, check out the artist's website.
