New Orleans hip hop and R&B artist, RJAE has officially released his debut studio album under his newly-announced signing with Roc Nation entitled,Â Youâ€™re The Problem.Â Â
Continuing the rising success of summertime anthem, â€œRemember Thatâ€ featuring platinum, award-nominated rapper,Â A Boogie Wit Da HoodieÂ released earlier this month ahead of the project, todayâ€™s album release delivers electrifying collaborations with hip hopâ€™s most influential voices, like GRAMMY-nominated rapper,Â YoungBoy Never Broke AgainÂ for lead track, â€œToo Gone.â€ RJAE also recruits childhood iconÂ Hollygrove KeemÂ and sleek sounds from production duoÂ Numba OneÂ on the project.Â
On his debut LP, RJAE showcases his sonic versatility blending captivating rap wordplay with soulful R&B harmonies for a sound that has been curated as uniquely his own. The 11-track genre-blending collection showcases new depths to the artistâ€™s vulnerability, taking fans through his introspective experiences with love, loss, and growth along the way. The unique sound RJAE brings to the genre underscores his rapid growth as the next breakout star from the NBA camp, and his rise as a never-before-seen champion for New Orleans coming out of the south.Â
The NOLA artist provided fans a first look glimpse into the storytelling behind the project in a recentÂ teaser videoÂ on social media in tandem with anÂ Instagram Live sessionÂ earlier this week with Lil Wayneâ€™s daughter, Reginae Carter.
RJAE has accumulated an impressive history of stage performances, from his recent opening spot on hip-hop legend,Â Lil Wayneâ€™sÂ Â Welcome To Tha Carter TourÂ this year, to featured appearances on southern rapper, No Capâ€™s national Mr. Crawford Tour, and his early days touring with A Boogieâ€™s Highbridge crew across North America.Â
RJAE has also showcased his artistic skill on the Never Broke Again tapesÂ AINâ€™T 2 LONG,Â Never Broke Again: The Compilation Volume 1,Â andÂ Never Broke Again Presents: Green Flag ActivityÂ with artistsÂ P Yungin, Rojay MLP, NBA Herm, NoCap, Quando Rondo, Meechy Baby, among others.Â Â
Prior to Roc Nationâ€™s official signing, RJAE had already accrued over 20 million streams and views independently, capturing waves of support from urban and rhythmic radio formats from all across the south. RJAE has established himself as a creative force carving out a new lane for hip-hop, unabashedly leaning into both his earnest vulnerability and ambitious confidence.Â
