Words by Emily Shapiro—
The PUSH Artist of the Week, MTV’s initiative to highlight and support new talent in the music industry, recently put its spotlight on Cris Cab, but Large Up has been following the 19-year-old Miami artist for a while now. While Cab’s voice has an emo quality to it, his songs often have a pop reggae vibe not unlike that of his mentor and collaborator, Wyclef. Earlier this year, the pair collaborated on “Rihanna’s Gun,” a smooth response to “Man Down” also featuring Mavado that got our attention definitely took Cab out of any box we might have placed him in.
Now, Cab has just released a new track featuring Clef and co-produced by the Fugee and his younger brother, Sedeck Jean, as the single from his new EP Rise, which drops today. “She’s So Fly” has some excellent harmonies and is definitely worth a listen.
