The first lady of Rhymesayers Entertainment, Chicago emcee Psalm One will drop her third studio album, ‘P.O.L.Y. (Psalm One Loves You)‘, tomorrow. The album title alludes to the philosophy of polyamory, with Psalm One delivering playful, seductive wordplay complemented by developed production & live instrumentation.
Psalm One told Complex when asked about her inspiration & the album’s subject matter:
“I’m growing as a woman, as a person, and as an artist. As of the past year or so, I’ve been exploring polyamory. That is the practice of maintaining multiple loving relationships. It is a super challenging lifestyle, to say the least. Ups & downs, tears, and joy. I have always been a serial monogamist, so my life has been turned upside down. As a result, my music has gotten more lush, and I’ve been able to open up my platform & peer group to more incredible musicians. I’m very community oriented now. Not so much into ‘scenes.’ I’m into sharing my crazy life with amazing people who deserve it.”
Fellow RAPPERCHICKS artist Angelenah joins Psalm One on the album’s opening track “Secrets (No Waiting)” & also “Plenty Of Wins”, which is a haunting, edgy number encapsulating Psalm’s shrewd, unbothered, & self-confident approach. “Kissy Face” is a more lighthearted take on relationships, while “Who Are You” is an introspective cut that finds Psalm letting her guard all the way down to express her true self. Earlier this month, we posted Psalm One’s My Gold Mask-assisted track “Maybe Never”, which followed “Impatient (Just U & Us)” (which you can also give a listen here on VannDigital.com). Earlier this year, Psalm One teamed up with fellow Chi-Town rapper ProbCause for their collaborative ‘ZRO FOX EP‘.
Psalm One is currently headlining her “DIY Tour” with support from Angelenah, Fluffy, & The Palmer Squares throughout September & October, hitting various festivals & venues in the Midwest & Northeast…Purchase tickets to Psalm One’s “DIY Tour” here!!!
