Keeping the momentum flowing following the release of his well-received music video for “Don’t Run,” Lexington’s most notable rising star Corio delivers the Claudio “2x” Clarke-produced cut “Emotions.” Staying on-brand, the interpersonal track finds the “Phone Off” composer getting super transparent about how he feels and what he expects out of his current relationship.
Corio, formerly known as YNL Capone, hails from Kentucky’s second-largest city Lexington. Over the past few years, he’s blessed his growing fanbase with projects like ‘The Let Go,’ ’10 Hours,’ ‘Amoré’, and ‘First Class,’ which sees six equally dope cuts from the genre-bending artist. He’s also delivered the notable singles “Go Harder” and “Vietnam.” As Corio, fans can look for more of his infectious harmonies evident on his most recent EP, Last Week In LA.
It’s not so often in this current climate that we are blessed with much musical talent that comes out of the Bluegrass state. With the success of Louisville megastars Bryson Tiller, Jack Harlow, and EST Gee, they have been bringing good energy to the area and are inspiring plenty of local rising stars. That said, Corio is coming for his spot in the game and has been showing some very promising signs of potential very early on in his musical career.
As of late, Corio has been closely working with DJ Corbett, the multi-Grammy-winning producer out of Northern KY, assuring that his sound will be developed to its full capacity. Corio writes about his life and past events with great visualization through lyrics and a smooth cadence with calm delivery.
In addition to that, Corio uses the clash of such a soothing vocal on uptempo beats to wow us with his creativity. Hit the play below, and watch his Brandon Lopez-directed visual for “Don’t Run,” here.
