Jon Bellion is an artist and musician unlike any you have seen before. I guarantee it. Unlike most other Hip-Hop artists or rappers who claim they cannot be classified into one genre of music, Jon Bellion is one of the few who can actually hold true to that. Whether you know him or not, some of his notable works range from: Translations Through Speakers, The Separation, The Definition, The Human Condition and his latest Glory Sound Prep. I listed these works on purpose. You really have to listen to this music to understand the type of artist he is and the versatility and progression he had made over the years.
One might ask: well is he a singer or a rapper? That's a rather natural question to ask as most artists nowadays either sing or rap. However, Jon is both an excellent singer and a more-than-capable rapper. Unlike most traditional artists in the music industry nowadays who mostly use the raw sounds of Hip-Hop (namely 808's and bass and percussion), Bellion uses his and others voices as the instruments itself. One of this main voice-produced sounds comes from beat-boxing, but he is also open to the strangest sounds such as yells, high-pitch sounds, mumbles, etc. If you listen closely to just about any song he has made, a lot of the melodies, rhythmic beats which make up the skeleton of the song are voice samples. He even releases music videos from time to time detailing and showing his creative process in creating each song. His creative process doesn't just stop there. He has countless ways of combing sounds to create the most unusual, yet unique sounding beats. He has even gone as far as to record a whole orchestral performance as the instrumental for a few of his songs as well (Carry Your Throne being one of those songs).
Anyways the reason for bringing up a relatively unknown artist at a time like this is because he has been holding world tours these past few years. So if you're tired of listening to the same old radio songs or random shuffled songs on Spotify, then I recommend checking him out as soon as possible. Who knows you might just find him to be a refreshing new artist. On top of that, some of his concert tickets are on sale now and even though this is not a sponsored gimmick to make any of you purchase them, I highly recommend seeing him live. His live performances bring so much energy to the crowd due to him making beats on the spot and his melodic vocals echoing throughout the stadium walls.
So if you have made it this far into this post, please give him a listen. You might might even like him, but if anything, he will be an artist unlike any you have ever heard.
