It's pretty obvious that Atlanta is basically running hip-hop from a regional standpoint at the moment, as they continue to churn out hits from a variety of artists. The latest to hit our radar is an artist that goes by the name of Villa, who just dropped a video for his song, "Teardrop Mercedes," his most popular release to date.
The spacy, catchy track was uploaded onto Villa's personal Soundcloud page two months ago, and has since accumulated over 37,000 plays that seem to have mostly originated from mostly hearsay. Villa's drowned out vocals will remind you of PARTYNEXTDOOR, but it's clear he's looking to carve his own lane in the game. Villa's Soundcloud currently includes five songs in addition to "Teardrop Mercedes," which you can check out here, with one featuring fellow Atlanta artist Rome Fortune.
Even as "Teardrop Mercedes" continues to bubble, Villa remains pretty under the radar for now, at least. So as you push play on "Teardrop Mercedes," and warning, you might have it on repeat for awhile, keep an eye out for Villa, who just might be the next artist to break on the always popping Atlanta music scene.
