Oakland’s multi-talented rapper/vocalist/producer/songwriter Elujay began crafting his sound at the age of 14. Musically inspired by Hip-Hop and R&B legends D’Angelo, Musiq Soulchild, and Kendrick Lamar, Elujay started producing instrumentals and writing songs representative of his love for both Neo-Soul and Hip-Hop. The Northern California artist has been on a mission to create “honest soulful music” while expressing his feelings and experiences growing up in the ever-changing Bay Area environment.
Now, Elujay reveals the sultry, soulful jam “Starchild.” The single serves as a splendid deviation from his previous releases, relying on his singing voice more so than the melodic rapping that fans are accustomed to hearing from the Northern California rising star.
“Starchild” transgresses Elujay more into the R&B spectrum and acts as a testament to his growth as an artist thanks to his ability to transcend genres seamlessly.
