"Diamond in the rough"

In this new entry in our ‘Diamonds In The Rough’ category, we want to introduce you to upcoming artist duo CHO53N 1 and their brand new single titled “Couped Up”.
When we pressed play to “Couped Up” for the first time, we were really impressed by CHO53N 1’s flow and especially the flow switches. The cool verses and the great hook make “Couped Up” a potential hit song, which definitely deserves major recognition. - Rick

"CHO53N 1- Mesmerized"

Stop. Take a second, because you're about to be 'Mesmerized' with this banger! Al Merlot & Fredii B. are completely infatuated in this song and illustrate just how much they are willing to do to be with the one! "And I would die for somebody like you, cause that body hypnotize me," it's just that good. They describe how a pure soul is hard to come by and this one they'll have to keep close and treasure!

Lyrics That Stick:

"As long as she beside me, no obstacle that's in front of me." - Logan Reynolds


Album: Black Men Don't Cheat

Single: Couped Up



Cho53n1, more like the Chosen Two, “Fredii B“ and “Al Merlot“, began as a

group in 2018. Fredii, who has been performing since the age of 14, began

song writing at the age of 20. Merlot, rapping since 12 years old, began

producing music at the age of 15. These two artists combined their talents

and artistry in what would create their unique style and advantage in the

music industry.

”... we don’t like to put ourselves in a box. Not singers but we like to sing and

we both rap. We like to let our soul speak.”

Artists like, Bob Marley, JCole, Pharrell, and Michael Jackson to name a few,

inspired their Hip Hop/ Neo Soul sound.

With Cho53n1, no song may sound the same. They aren’t afraid to try

something new and make it their own.

“Whatever happens, happens.

We might create verses then structure a beat around them or the complete

opposite. We just try to do something we haven’t done before.”

As an independent group, Cho53n1, inspires to one day sign with selective

labels in the industry such as, Roc Nation, Dreamville, TDE, and Def Jam.

“Nothing comes to a sleeper but a dream.”

As this group continues to stride closer to their dreams, be sure to stream

their music on all platforms and to add them on IG @_cho53n1
