Movie Monroe – Joy Ride

Artist: Movie Monroe

Song: Joy Ride

Based: Las Vegas

Stands out: Dark energy

If you like: Cardi B

Movie Monroe is an alternative hip-hop artist based in Las Vegas. He’s got a nice and hard sound that manages to pull of gagnsta and trap vibes while still being catchy enough to have chart potential, just like ‘Bodak Yellow’ did by Cardi B.

The song is in a minor key which lends to the really dark and atmospheric sound that Movie Monroe has created. The instrumentation is more on the trap side of modern hip-hop. With its’ combination of catchy lyrics and hard hitting sounds, you can just picture this song being played in Hollywood blockbusters similar to the way Angel Haze was featured in ‘The Heat’.
