Brooklyn’s moody R&B/Alternative recording artist Keyz Vango released his latest single “Hol’ It” on May 31st, 2019. The track was written, produced and engineered by Vango himself and is an emotive slow jam dealing with ideas of love and loyalty. Anticipating the inevitable distance that will come with his success, Vango asking the woman he loves “Can you hold it down?” in this affectionately catchy hook. Keyz wants to know “Can you stand the sunshine, even if it comes with rain?” The song is brilliantly chill, built around a smooth guitar hook textured with vocal improvisations, and lets Vango’s lyrics come to the forefront.
Keyz Vango was born in Alabama to a gospel music family and moved to New York as a child. He attended college for a while but dropped out to pursue his musical ambitions. Starting out as a versatile producer and ghost writer across several genres, he grew into the multifaceted artist he is today over time. He’s developed a unique creative voice that delivers his Truth his way and has the power and potential to break through to a worldwide audience. “Hol’ It” is an intimate and amazing bit of 3 AM Soul and belongs in the ears of anyone who loves deep modern R&B."
