Singer October London explores the ups and downs of life and love with his second EP, Color Blind: Hate & Happiness (via Snoop Dogg and Jazze Pha's Cadillacc Music label), premiering exclusively on Billboard.
"The idea of the EP stemmed from my love of old school music," London tells Billboard. "Snoop and I were admiring the authenticity of the sound and passion in old school music." "I wanted to highlight the different moods that affected me most as a fan of music: Love, Hate, and Happiness. Old school music was my foundation and I wanted to pay tribute to that and build on that."
He notes that his sound can't be pinned to one style. "I don't just do one genre; I realize most of my fans can appreciate more than one genre of music," he notes. "They'll hear more music coming from me soon!"
London emerged on the music scene last year with the emotional single, "Black Man in America." Last December, he followed up with the first installment of an EP trilogy, Color Blind: Love before releasing a short film of the same name in March, which featured Snoop Dogg and Mike Epps. London also penned the theme song for VH1 hit Martha and Snoop's Potluck Dinner Party.
