Check Out The Genre-Bending Stylings Of “French Toa$t” By Keyz Vango & The Beetstreet Groove"

Born in Montgomery, Alabama, up and coming R&B/Alternative Hip-Pop recording artist Keyz Vango moved to New York State with his family. Now based in Bushwick, Brooklyn, Keyz Vango learned to play the trumpet and classical piano by his early teens. With his father being a pastor, there were some genres of music that Keyz Vango was unable to listen to, but through trials and tribulations, he found himself secretly making beats and honing his craft in his bedroom. Inspired by a wide range of artists spanning from Kanye West to Nirvana, Keyz Vengo brings a unique new wave sound to the music industry today. 

My goal is to continue to break molds through music, culturally and hopefully socially, as well as breakthrough my own barriers and fears” - Keyz Vango

Featuring a smooth beat and a softly soulful delivery, “French Toa$t”  is a track with a mildly Caribbean-like flavor and bounce to it. A light and summer-time-suited riff contrast with a heavy yet slow-paced bass-line, and meanwhile a series of alternating, dynamic-building vocal parts help hold tight to your interest. The lyrics within “French Toa$t” focus on the frustrations of a one-sided relationship, where the person being pursued only offers what’s on the surface but demands everything in return.  The recent sounds of artists like Post Malone make for a welcoming arena for this type of track. The professionalism and even the subtle confidence all work brilliantly here to craft something that easily fits within the current climate for the genre. As he continues to develop his sound and his voice, it’s likely we’ll be hearing plenty more from Keyz Vango.
