So I posted the “Gems and Rubies” video from B. Rossi and jake troth a few weeks ago and it seems like people are already starting to take notice of this song. Check out the new article from Entertainment Weekly after the break. Shout out to B. Rossi and Amir Windom. via Entertainment Weekly.

B. Rossi and Jake Troth aren’t stars yet. In fact, the young Southerners are just about complete unknowns at the moment. But if their new duet, “Gems & Rubies,” catches on, that could be about to change.

The single pairs the easygoing rhymes of Decatur, Ga.’s Rossi (pictured at right), 24, with smooth singing from 22-year-old North Carolina native Troth (left). The combination hits a mellow pop-rap sweet spot. It’s not far at all from the type of sound that has already paid off handsomely this year for the likes of B.o.B, Drake, and Travie McCoy. Of course, those guys all had major-label deals long before they dropped full-length albums. Still, if “Gems & Rubies” gets heard by enough people, I could see those chips falling into place.

How about you? Time to play a little armchair A&R. Check out “Gems & Rubies” after the jump and let us know if you think this could be a breakout hit. If you like what you hear, you can look forward to the rest of B. Rossi’s Escape From America EP later this summer.
