After the release of his debut track ‘Howdy’ generated more than a million streams upon its arrival in 2019, US rapper Sailec has been going from strength to strength ever since, and now returns with his latest belter ‘Hold On’.
Bringing back more of that fresh and dynamic sound he has built a reputation for recently, ‘Hold On’ sees him in the same confident form as always. Mixing broad and textured soundscapes around his wonderfully passionate flow gives it return a firm and captivating direction that is quickly becoming his calling card.
Speaking about the new offering, he said, “Hold On is about falling in love with somebody you shouldn’t be with. It’s about trying to find peace in a place of chaos. Dealing with intense emotions and dark thoughts all while trying to seem okay while doing so. This song is a part of me and my reality. I’m shining a light on some of my darkest moments. The track represents the struggle of pretending to be happy and forcing yourself to hold on to something that’s not good for you.”
Born in Southern California, Sailec uploaded his first track ‘Howdy’ to Soundcloud in 2019 which quickly gained over 1 million streams due to his fast intense melodies along with remarkably harsh lyrics. At 17 years old he experimented with a wide range of vocal styles and genres like Trap, Alternative Rock, Hip-Hop and R&B which led him to create his first EP “The Prototype” released in October of 2020. Fast-paced and aggressively addictive The Prototype EP portrayed Sailec’s unique flows and his adaptable vocals. Versatile and rapidly growing Sailec has continued to engage his fans with releases like ‘Left 4 Dead’ and ‘Hold On’ for his vivid and emotionally intense lyrical play and catchy melodies. Ending 2020 with a cliffhanger Sailec’s track ‘Darkside’ obtained the attention of thousands of new ears including Adam22 from No Jumper and artists like LilHBK.
Even with the expansive discography and versatile cadences of 19-year-old Sailec, he believes he is just at the dawn of stardom.
