Charles Hamilton f/ Rita Ora “New York Raining”

In the wee hours of the morning, we have the official visual to Charles Hamilton & Rita Ora’s big #Empire single. Diggin’ the typewriter beginning, the overall black and white aesthetic, and then the overall message and substance for the video as well. If Rita Ora’s eyes don’t reel you in too…

Charles Hamilton “New York Raining” (Live Piano)

Charles Hamilton made the Empire finale last night and performed his new single “New York Raining” with Rita Ora. While I can’t find video of it from the show, I did just discover this all-new piano version of just Hamilton and the keys. Very nice and it’s great to hear him back. Catch him amongst the bevy of artists at SXSW this week too.

BONUS: Charles Hamilton talks the Empire cameo + how the collab with Rita Ora came about
