Grammy-nominated songwriter and recording artist Playy has released a new anthem called “Nothing 2 Something.” This optimistic track aims to inspire fans, showing them that success can be achieved from the ground up. It emphasizes that where you’re headed is more important than where you come from. We all start somewhere, but where we end up is all that matters.

A few months ago, Playy teased the new track with an in-studio performance during his appearance on The Progress Report.

A native of Houston, Playy’s new video for “Nothing 2 Something” depicts his journey from hitting rock bottom to reviving his music career and achieving even greater success. Previously signed to Interscope Records, Playy’s determination and consistency have allowed him to write for and collaborate with notable artists like Ludacris, Nicki Minaj, Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins, and Kelly Rowland. While working with prominent names has boosted his popularity, artists can still gain recognition without such collaborations. Their talent and style must be outstanding and captivating enough to draw in audiences to place them in the spotlight.

The Wisdom Of Playy’s Track

“Nothing 2 Something” is about coming from nothing and achieving everything. It also emphasizes the importance of learning how to appreciate what one has because one can lose it all in the blink of an eye.” Gratitude is essential! “I want to help people understand that it can go either way. You never know. Just keep fighting”, said Playy.

The song was produced by Mic Moody, with whom Playy has been working for many years. Among his many credits, Mic Moody has worked with Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Ariana Grande, Victoria Monet, and Lucky Daye, to name just a few.

It is not deemed invalid to work with a music producer who has not worked with big names in the music industry. However, a lot of times, associating with a famous producer who collaborates with major stars typically boosts the exposure of your songs.

“Nothing 2 Something” Is A True Rags To Riches Tale

Shot by DGreen in Houston, Texas, the music video depicts Playy as a homeless artist who is recognized on the street by other artists. After bouncing back, it appears that he now has a large house, an impressive collection of cars, and women. It is an accurate representation of what it is like to go from nothing to having something. In my opinion, this music video and song should resonate with many people. People tend to take life for granted and assume that they will never experience financial difficulties. There is no such thing as being overly certain.

Next year, Playy will perform at SXSW again and release new music.
