Almost more exciting than my two favorite artists Bridget Kelly and Kendrick Lamar crafting a track together is the fact that Roc Nation is actually giving the amazing vocalist a real push leading up to her debut album.

[Music Video] CharlieRED - "Could Be"

Rocki Evans and Cobaine Ivory have been unstoppable together as CharlieRED, and their Religion EP is a project that you should have in constant rotation if you don't already.

The lucky track from Religion to get the visual treatment this time around is one of the record's sexier cuts "Could Be." While the song itself is extremely moving, the video only amplifies the essence of the song which dwells upon the possibilities of a new relationship.
