Florida-born, LA-based artist June3rd releases his eagerly anticipated album debut JEMENI featuring the incomparable Rick Ross and Philly-born artist FRIDAYY via Labyrinth Music Group. June3rd turns the page to new heights with the release of his first body of work that takes listeners on a journey chronicling ebb and flows faced in life native to his experiences. The project is executive produced by RIAA certified platinum producer duo Dream Addix as the Kissimmee native takes the lead with songwriting. JEMENI is available to purchase/ download HERE.
June3rd cleverly plays on the duality of self by introducing the character persona JEMENI. Listeners get the chance to hear contrasting perspectives that attests to a specific mood, feel, vibe as he goes at odds with himself essentially.
“JEMENI” came together originally from my name being June3rd and everyone assuming that it’s my birthday and that I’m an actual Gemini. Then from there, JEMENI became much more than a title. It became a character and symbolic of a different side/personality of me. We all have those different sides to us. Throughout the album, you’ll hear a roller coaster of different emotions and mindsets that change throughout me being young and figuring out life and what I want out of it,” June shares.
In addition to the album’s acclaimed singles “Wait 4 It,” “POV,” “1942,” and “Ruff Ryder” featuring FRIDAYY, JEMENI features nine new songs that maliciously aid in weaving the themes of life, love, and longevity. The rising star showcases his unmatched artistic range with JEMENI’s satisfying sonic make across varying genres while showcasing a full spectrum of bangers from Trap&B anthems to introspective, emotive ballads.
The next official single, “Friends,” featuring Rick Ross, is one of the several forthcoming hits backed by thumping 808s and tantalizing lethal lyrics. June magnifies in on his constant need to look over his shoulders from individuals who may not have his best interest in mind. He affirms, “same crew, never switch” and taps revered Hip Hop icon Rick Ross for a feature that infectiously illuminates the hit. Elsewhere, tracks such as “Voices” brilliantly highlight the seesaw of emotions that set the stage for the more vulnerable side of the JEMENI album with ravishing R&B offerings “Right Back,” “Without You,” “My Wave,” and more.
Acclaim for JEMENI has been abundant from industry tastemakers, fans, and esteemed outlets including OnesToWatch, All Hip Hop, BET Jams, Flaunt Magazine, Bleu Magazine, The Knockturnal, UPROXX, Grunge Cake, among several others who have profiled June3rd this year.
After establishing himself as a one-to-watch artist, songwriter and performer, championed by R&B heavyweight Eric Bellinger and more, June3rd proves that he is an absolute rising star for 2021. Standing tall with streams and reception millions that started from a small cult following during the Soundcloud era, he makes an esteemed introduction to the world with his multilayered body of work JEMENI.
