Smokin’ with Emotion: “Chasing Stars” by @CoreyNiles featuring @Alex_Lacasse

COREY NILES featuring ALEX LACASSE, “Chasing Stars”

Canadian hip hop singer/songwriter Corey Niles may have just outdone himself with “Chasing Stars”.  As regular readers know, I definitely took a shine to Corey’s singles “Rollercoaster” (featuring Dru) and particularly the Top 10 “Get To Know You” (featuring Ish), both of which ended up in my Top 75 of 2014.  “Chasing Stars” is something completely different and unexpected, and Corey continues to delight in this way with each release.  My reference point for it both thematically and melodically is “Rocketeer” by Far East Movement featuring Ryan Tedder – these songs are a great pair!  But whereas Ryan’s vocal really carried that song, “Chasing Stars” has a beautiful balance of emotions happening in both Corey’s gritty raps and truly ear-turning choruses by Ottawa native Alex Lacasse (who is currently working with another one of my favourites, “The Voice”‘s Chris Jamison!) which accentuate the glorious intangible destination of the song.  Both performers complement each other and make the song sound effortless.  Plus, like “Get To Know You”, “Chasing Stars” has some of the cleanest, tighest sounding production around.  It should take no time for “Chasing Stars” to find its way around Canada and possibly beyond, so start spreading the word!
