Why You Should Pay Attention: When Ahmaad Aspen (pronounced "Ah-Maad As-Pen") released "Breaking DOwn" in 2017, Spotify threw its weight behind the power ballad, putting it on playlists like Are & Be, which boasts 3.3 million followers, and using his photograph as the face of the "Alternative R&B" playlist for months. "Breaking Down" has now accumulated more than 15 million streams on the service, and it recently started getting played on Urban AC radio stations. On November 11th, Ahmaad Aspen will build on this with the My Life EP.
Hear for Yourself: On "Breaking Down," Ahmaad Aspen is suspended in a state of torturous indecision. "I'm breaking down, with a smile on my face," he sings, creeping through the verses and crashing through the hooks.
