After garnering massive success with “Gyalis” and the subsequent remix featuring Chris Brown & Popcaan, Bronx native Capella Grey returns with his second single “Talk Nice.”
The deliciously smooth mid-tempo Pelea Jibara sampled record is accompanied by an artistic visual that takes viewers along for a crazy night in uptown New York. Directed by Oliver Shore, “Talk Nice” is stylized in Grey’s signature short but impactful style and was produced by Capella himself.
The 2 minute visual finds Capella Grey in a lowkey speakeasy where he and his crew are in a celebratory mood. The night is young and the vibes are right until Capella’s is rudely interrupted and all hell breaks loose. The visual is immediately followed by rolling credits and various BTS clips of Capella, ending with Capella being presented with his first RIAA gold plaque for “Gyalis” backstage at Power 105.1’s Powerhouse concert late last month.
“Powerhouse, it was already crazy. Powerhouse was already a movie. I performed twice at Powerhouse. After my second performance, I’m backstage or whatever, everybody’s like, “Yo, get this solo flick real quick,” then the label surprised me with the plaque, the gold plaque,” Capella said to HotNewHipHop. “I wake up the next morning and realize that I’m platinum already. We’re kind of wylin’ this year. I didn’t even get to fully celebrate gold for 24 hours.”
Capella Grey has created a new, yet nostalgic R&B sound that invites listeners of all generations into his world. In addition to celebrating his first RIAA certified plaque, this year Capella also earned his first #1 at Urban Radio, #1 on Apple’s Top R&B, #1 on SoundCloud’s Top 50 R&B/Soul chart, #1 on Shazaam’s Top New York City chart and his first Soul Train Awards nomination for Best New Artist.
