Urban pop artist, Joshua Cruz, hits us with another groove infused track, “2 Step Baby,” featuring emerging rapper, Dabron Kain. Produced by Shorne “2SC” Callahan (who’s worked with Tom G, Akafool and Anthony Ortiz), the beat is soulful, sensual and all around funky. Dabron Kain delivers a tongue-in-cheek rap performance filled with quotable one-liners, matching perfectly with Josh’s catchy melodies.
“2 Step Baby” is a real throw-back to the early millennium style of hip-hop club songs where all you wanted to do was groove with the cutie next to you.
Joshua Cruz creates a lush soundscape filled with danceable beats, memorable hooks and introspective lyrics. His influences range from Michael Jackson, Kanye West, Queen, Drake, The Beatles, Bon Iver, and Justin Timberlake, making his sound funky and masterfully danceable. Weaving soul and emotion throughout, Josh aims to create music that people can easily relate to and have fun with.
“I wanted to make a song that was current but still felt like it could have been played at your homecoming in ‘08, a song that you could party and dance to for years to come. If you had a playlist titled “A Night You Won’t Forget” this would be track one.” – Joshua Cruz
Joshua Cruz was raised on gospel, hip-hop, Motown, and has been performing since he was a child.
