Wielding silky smooth vocals that blur the line between rap and R&B, St. Louis teenager Luh Kel captured hearts and climbed charts in 2019. Just 17-years-old, the Cinematic Music Group signee built a massive Instagram following (1.6 million strong) before releasing a single song, wowing his followers with his vocal talent. When he dropped his first single “Wrong,” his fans showed out in force, helping the track reach the Top 40 of Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. With over 130 million streams across platforms, “Wrong” heralded a huge year for Luh Kel, marked with hit video singles like “BRB,” “Pull Up,” and“Cold Heart,” and culminating with Mixed Emotions, the artist’s debut project. With his first headlining tour coming up next year, Luh Kel figures to make an even bigger impact very soon. – Audible treats
Luh Kel’s single “Wrong” originally starts off as a love song where he talks about how much he adores a girl then it takes a turn when he starts to talk about how wrong she did him. the song continues to go back and forth with his bittersweet experience. It’s an interesting song concept coming from a young male R&B singer since you usually hear these types of heartbreak songs from female singers. With almost 100,000 streams on Spotify and over 13 million views on youtube, the teenage star song captured the attention of the mostly young audience of dub-smash and tic tok.
We definitely feel like the young star has the potential to make a lasting impact, but time will tell.
