Chikoruss Drops a Cinematic Music Video for his “USC” Single Inspired by the “Love & Basketball” Movie

Chikoruss (@chikoruss_) is a rising singer-songwriter from Montreal, Québec, Canada. Not too long ago, he released a cinematic music video for his “USC” single via 300 Entertainment.

“‘USC’ came together after I collabed with my boy Malik95 who produced the track. He played me the beat and then we caught a vibe in the studio. I really wanted to continue with the same energy and vibes that my audience knows and loves. The goal is still the same: we’re bringing back R&B you can dance too!” – Chikoruss explained

Directed by Blu, the music video draws inspiration from the classic film Love & Basketball, where the two lead characters, Sanaa Lathan and Omar Epps, fall in love at the University of Southern California.

The song arrives on the heels of Chikoruss’ label-debut single, “In 2 Deep,” which has reeled in millions of Spotify streams and earned recognition from notable media outlets and fans alike.

“‘In 2 Deep’ is special to me because I made this song during my first trip to LA. It was the day I dropped my debut single, ‘Body Language.’ I was beaming off of the good energy from the release. I was working with one of my favorite engineers, Kai. It’s important to work with engineers who are on the same wavelength as me and can predict my style. Kai is great because he’s able to essentially mix my vocals while I record. He helps me sound flawless, which gives me even more confidence when making music.” – Chikoruss explained

Chikoruss has quickly asserted himself as a musical sensation. At just 20 years old, he has already reeled in tens of millions of streams and views thanks to his breakthrough singles “Body Language” and “No Luv” with Breez Kennedy.

Catching the attention of superstars, Chikoruss opened for multi-platinum artist Bryson Tiller at his Toronto show in the summer of 2023. Chikoruss is crafting a signature sound with an elite cohort of producers and collaborators, culminating with a series of new singles dropping this Spring.
