Beaumont-native artist Johnny Cocoa has debuted his new single release “Green Light.”
Produced by Grammy-winner Nes (prod. for Bryson Tiller, Cardi B) and Grammy-nominated 13x platinum producer Ambezza (prod. for Drake, Lil Baby, Young Thug, Lil Wayne, Baby Keem, Gucci Mane, 21 Savage, Tinashe, Chris Brown, Gunna, Kodak Black, and more), the new single dynamically blends a contrasted range of light toned strings and low rhythmic beats against Johnny’s sharp lyrical flow challenging his musical competition to step up to his game.
The track follows his recently dropped EP project I AM WHO I AM alongside the album’s Chopped & Screwed iteration with GRAMMY-nominated producer and fellow Texas legend, OG Ron C. The album features Johnny’s massively successful breakout single “On God” which earned the attention and public cosign from musical icons Drake and Ye.
Off the heels of his recent contributions to the Humble Soles mixtape release dropped earlier this year, Johnny will be joining mixtape collaborators Huey V, Reuben Vincent, RJAE, among others for a cross-country tour to ring in the homecoming season and continue the project’s commemoration of hip hop’s 50th anniversary.
Representing Beaumont, Texas, Johnny continues to make his mark as the next rising artist to break out of the south with a unique sound that blends intricate rap styles, a soulful R&B flow, and reggae tones – all inspired by his deep childhood roots singing in church and icons such as James Brown, Russ, Kendrick Lamar and more. Championing his community, Johnny centers his music to commemorate Black power, unity, self-love and progress. Johnny continues to carve out his own lane in the music industry with the promise of becoming the world’s next breakthrough sound.
