One of the main figures in the Baltimore club scene – which is a musical genre unto itself, in the same way as Detroit techno or Chicago house – Blaqstarr is expanding his style on his upcoming debut LP Blaqstarr- The Mixtape. Single “Kiss Me On The Lips” (feat Mos Def) is a futuristic mix of R&B, hip-hop AND pop.
If you haven’t heard of Blaqstarr before, you probably have heard of some of the people he’s worked with – as they are some of the hottest artists out now: M.I.A., Mos Def, Diplo and Rye Rye. On this single, he gets a helping hand from the effortlessly cool Mos Def, who chimes in for a slick intro and the chorus. (Not to be confused with Mos Def’s Black Star efforts – the name of the group made up of him and Talib Kweli).
