CLOUDxCITY releases an appealing music video for their “Better Than Me” single

What happens when a poetic closet nerd from Los Angeles meets a charismatic nomad from New York? Meet CLOUDxCITY, the music duo composed of the energetic Enjel (singer/songwriter/producer) and enigmatic TAS (producer/DJ/songwriter). Not too long ago, they released an appealing music video for their “Better Than Me” single.

‘Better Than Me’ tells a heartfelt tale about a broken-hearted young guy. Apparently, his significant other walked out of his life and left him in a desolate state. Later, he tells his ex-partner, “Hope you get what you deserve ‘cause when you left, it hurt.”

‘Better Than Me’ displays a softer, more reflective side of CLOUDxCITY. The emotive tune follows mildly on the heels of their previously released singles, the danceable “Jezebel” and genre-dynamic fan favorite, “Maybe You’re The Reason.”

“Nobody love you better than me.”

CLOUDxCITY may come from radically different backgrounds, but their natural chemistry and love for music creation brought them together after a lifetime of writing and producing. Before joining forces in late 2019, the two creatives were on entirely different paths. After years of bouncing from city to city working different music industry jobs and one near-death experience, Rochester’s Enjel settled in LA as a solo artist.

After briefly exploring the world of cinema and directing, LA-native TAS grew into a songwriter/producer who experienced behind-the-scenes success. Individually they both wrote, produced, and engineered for notable artists like Selena Gomez, Meg Thee Stallion, the Ying Yang Twins, Cee-Lo Green, YG, Zedd, Eminem, Quavo, Bahari, and more. Although grateful for their careers to take off as writers and producers, they longed to create something more meaningful for themselves.

When their paths finally crossed at Rock Mafia’s Santa Monica studio, the mutual respect and chemistry were palpable. CLOUDxCITY was essentially born during the 2020 pandemic when the pair had nothing but time to develop this new partnership. The kindred spirits used their unique yet complementary energies to construct a hypnotic fusion of hip-hop, electronic, and dark pop sonics that they have coined “existential hip-hop.” Mysterious but not brazen, futuristic but not detached, provocative yet still welcoming and relatable – that’s what you can expect from CLOUDxCITY both on and off the stage.
