Lai’jhon Hawkins – “Much More Than Music” Exclusive Article!

Times are changing fast, and while the world becomes more frenetic every day, the music industry adapts to the new pace, following the rule set by digital platforms and an entirely new way of living artists’ music. In this scenario, it is harder to spot artists who truly stand out from the crowd, especially in genres like Pop, Hip-Hop, and R&B. While most artists follow the digital algorithm, trying to photocopy what works for the big artists, there are still some talents who don’t follow the pack and, strong of a unique style and charisma, stand out from the crowd thanks to their music. Artists like Lai’jhon Hawkins remind us that good music is still out there for those who can recognize it! Today, at Planet Singer, we have the great pleasure of listening to some of his tracks, entering his world, and discovering with you the music of one of the most promising artists of the contemporary music scene.


Lai’jhon Hawkins is a talented R&B and Hip-Hop artist, excellent singer, producer, and songwriter, with a very clear vision of the direction he wants his music to go. Gifted with a rich and soulful voice, Hawkins incorporates the best sonorities of the legends of this genre in his sound. This Oakland based artist has worked hard on his music, shaping it since his first recordings over 15 years ago and evolving in that exceptional sound that now is part of his trademark. Among his previous releases, we can appreciate excellent tracks such as “The Greatest” (2015) and “She Fly” (2016) second single from his album “Love, Life, Lust.”

“Fly Away” is the first single from “Love, Life, Lust,” an excellent release that shows this talented artist’s incredible songwriting and interpretational skills. Starting from Lai’jhon Hawkins’ unique interpretation behind the microphone to the catchy beat and memorable melodies, this song comprises what real R&B means. Excellent production and top-level video support this great release, which also shines thanks to the incredible lyrics perfectly interpreted by Hawkins!

Other incredible tracks that shine among Lai’jhon’s discography are “Sound Fx,” officially released in 2019, and”Sun Down,” Hawkins’ latest releases in 2020 after “Señorita” and “OOOO WWHEEE.” While we find again that signature sound and the same intensity in his voice, in “Sun Down,” we can feel even more the artistic maturity of an artist, producer, songwriter, and performer whose music is a real picture of his perception of our society. “Sun Down” is one of those tracks with an extreme potential and versatility, that engages from the first second to the last one, note by note, thanks to a dynamic and brilliant arrangement and impressive production levels! Lai’jhon Hawkins is one of the most exciting artists of this generation, and we can’t wait for his next release, and hopefully a full-length album soon!
