Brooklyn-based Alt hip-hop and R&B artist SaintAhmad just released his latest single and accompanying visuals for “BEAST.” The rising artist, who has made a name for himself with his progressive blend of bold, unhinged sounds and avant-garde aesthetics, is heavily influenced by artists such as Tyler the Creator and Frank Ocean.
SaintAhmad’s new single “BEAST” is a compelling track about making your dreams a reality by igniting the passion, grit, and fire within. SaintAhmad confides,” it’s about rising above any situation that you feel has withheld you from reaching your truest potential. I’ve always called myself a beast because of my determination, drive and dedication to this artist life. Now, I get to share what I’ve been through that’s made me into the beast that I am today." With unapologetic lyrics and an infectious hook, the song drips with powerful lines over immersive and energizing hip-hop production. In the accompanying visuals, SaintAhmad’s concept is genius. The pleasantly sinister and provocative narrative will have you guessing at every turn while gripping you tightly and taking you down a wild ride into the depths of the artist’s mind. Complete with mesmerizing choreography, eye-catching costume design, and an explosion of imaginative sights and sounds, the visuals portray the defiant energy and confidence that SaintAhmad is known and celebrated for.
SaintAhmad writes music that deals with edgy topics and themes tied to love, sex, and relationships. Aside from songwriting, the artist is a professional dancer in NYC and earned his BFA in Dance from Florida State University. Born in Tashikawahi-shi, Tokyo, Japan, SaintAhmad first discovered his passion and talent for music and performance while at church, and music has become a way for him to channel the empowerment that comes from "being his true and authentic self."
