Who is ballad?

It’s no secret that Neo-Soul and R&B are under celebrated genres in today’s music. Loyal R&B fans are searching high and low for the next generation of musicians to fill in the void for the lack of timeless music. And that’s where Ballad comes in.

Ballad is a soulful R&B singer born in Luanda, Angola, who used music as a safe space to migrate into the American culture. His unforgettable sound is reminiscent of Maxwell and Prince wrapped into one, with an eclectic image to match. Ballad’s sultry voice and passionate lyrics has earned him over 200k streams with his EP’s, Croix and Suite ‘89, and has reached a demographic of over 60% women. His hit singles “Jasmine” and “Give It All” has been featured on popular websites like DJBooth.net, ThisIsRNB.com, and YouKnowIGotSoul.com to name a few. Ballad’s vision and passion for quality R&B is evident and he shows no sign of slowing down.

Ballad, “Give It All”

When I pressed play on Ballad’s “Give It All” single, I instantly did a double-take. Why? Because I honestly thought that Lloyd was a featured guest. But that wasn’t the case; it was Ballad, all himself. Still, this could be a good or bad thing. Good because it shows his vocal abilities and alterations that add more substance and style to the track, but bad because people will make comparisons as we often do (and I just did). Still, there is a high level of appreciation for songs that still hold the true essence of R&B without implementing electro/EDM sounds so, Ballad, you get three thumbs up for this one. — Erin Ashley Simon
