Today EQMusicBlog.com unveils a one minute video visual for Solomon’s single “Swim No More,” set to premiere exclusively on the website this Tuesday. The lead single, lifted from Solomon’s upcoming EP Le Garcon, depicts a well suited man almost drowning in a large pool. Watch the snippet below.
Solomon is set to release the lead single off his upcoming EP Le Garçon next month. Titled, “Swim No More,” the single is set to hit radio, streaming platforms and iTunes on October 15th. See the cover art below.
A departure from the upbeat pop tunes Solomon released in the past, “Swim No More” finds the genre-bending singer impressively flexing his vocal talents over an aggressive and eclectic urban beat. Using Japanese taiko drums, bird sounds and even killer whale noises, the lead single off Le Garçon is a proper representation of just what Solomon has been hard at work crafting in the studio.
“I’m at an all time creative high. I stopped listening to what other people were telling me I had to do with my music, and I’m just creating the type of art I want to hear. Throwing the rules out. I produced the beat with my DJ at 140 BPM, and slowed it down to get this real creepy sound. Then I put these sweet little bird sounds in it. It’s pretty rad. Sounds like nothing that is out now.”
“Swim No More” impacts radio and iTunes October 15th.

Heavily inspired by art and technology, his new photos are the most colorful images the already colorful genre-bending artist has done. Inspired by Star Trek and 1960’s sci-fi films, the black and white look showcases the rapper with slicked back hair in Burberry Prorsum and Prada.
The pop art look, obviously inspired by Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol, was finalized when he saw Michael Jackson’s iconic Time Magazine cover. “Michael was and still is a huge inspiration for me,” Explains the artist. “So when my artistic collaborator came to me with the magazine, I loved the idea and had to go with it!”
While Solomon has a team of young artist he is now working with, he leads the creativity and is the first to present ideas. “I have this Michael Baastrup Chang photo in my home I absolutely love. So I wanted to incorporate televisions. ” The photo, a art installation titled The Vitruvian Woman by the Danish painter and printmaker, showcases an empty room with nine televisions. “I grew up in front of a television. So it’s like my perception of reality, and maybe beauty is a little skewed. Television killed reality.” The look shows Solomon in Maison Martin Margiela, Givenchy and Reebok.
