Absent from our pages since February, when she made her solo debut with the reader-approved DOLO, indie-pop songstress Marz Lovejoy returns to the Booth with new single Discouraged. As the title indicates, this moody jam finds Lovejoy feeling overwhelmed by life's trials and tribulations. Backed by Om'Mas Keith and Mike Swoop's swirling synths, the FrankRadio/iHipHop Distribution signee confronts the malaise that's been “hurtin' her soul,” urging herself to “shake it off” and finally “get [her] sh*t together.” Director GRVTY provides a visual document of the artist's struggles, enlisting local folk legend Cornbread Harris for a cameo appearance. This all-too-relatable cut is part of Marz's elePhant Soundz album, scheduled for release at an as yet-unknown date next year. As always, we'll keep you supplied with the latest singles and release details.
