|CHRIS BROWN & POPCAAN JOIN CAPELLA GREY FOR HIGHLY ANTICIPATED “GYALIS REMIX”|
Listen to the “Gyalis Remix” HERE
Bronx R&B sensation Capella Grey returns with an electrifying remix of his song of the summer, “Gyalis,” featuring Chris Brown & Popcaan. Capella has captured the hearts of New Yorkers and fans around the world, as his player’s anthem has travelled the boroughs and become a pop-cultural moment in one of rap’s capital cities. This buoyant new version seems tailormade to stretch the song’s summer domination well into the fall. Listen HERE.
The rich melodies and playful energy of “Gyalis” have made the song synonymous with the warmer months, and this new version only magnifies these feelings. “Gyalis” (a popular patois term to describe a playboy) explores Capella’s sensual side, and Popcaan and Brown match that energy, offering their own risqué bars over the instrumental that samples Juvenile’s iconic “Back That Azz Up.” It’s no wonder Brown called the original the “the hardest shit out right now.”
Both Capella’s music peers and fans around the world seem to agree. It’s been remixed by acts like Kranium, A Boogie, French Montana, Tory Lanez, Fivio Foreign and more. The track peaked at #1 on Apple’s R&B/Soul charts as well as landed the #1 spot on Shazam’s Top 100 in the United States. It also recently hit #64 on Billboard’s Hot 100.
Capella Grey has created a new, yet nostalgic R&B sound that invites listeners of all generations into his world. The original track’s video features Capella’s friends, family and fans rallying around him and championing his success. Capella delivers riveting performance shots utilizing a vintage New York City taxi, a callback to his early days driving a cab in the city. Though he’s newly signed to Capitol, he’s been establishing himself as a singer, songwriter and star for the past few years. With “Gyalis” atop the charts and sure to continue to reach new ears with this remix, those times of relentless grind are starting to feel like a distant memory. Success isn’t easy to come by for anybody, but now that Capella is here, he’s ready to celebrate.

About Capella Grey:
Every once in a while, an artist comes along and reminds listeners what music is supposed to sound like. In today’s trendy viral video-dominated space, traditional R&B artists have had to play the background. Hip Hop purists have been replaced. And musically trained vocalists have to trade in their talent for a call-and-response anthem infectious enough to start a TikTok movement, but not Capella Grey. Attracting people with his talents, charm and great energy, Capella Grey played around different Churches in New York City. There were even times he had premonitions of his “big break” being that of a background singer for a superstar. But one day, an unstructured freestyle would change his life and align him amongst the stars. The 26-year old Bronx native has figured out a way to creatively match today’s sound with the authentic elements of musicianship. Peaking at No.1 on Apple Music’s Top 25: New York City and No. 1 on Shazam in the United States, Capella Grey has already begun to prove himself and why his sound is necessary. As a skilled songwriter, Capella’s words are embodied into harmony that translates to the streets, but in a way that doesn’t alienate the ladies either. “I want everyone to catch the vibe. Grab a shorty, do something,” says the young heartthrob who now has ladies crying when he’s on stage. Currently, Capella is working on his debut Capitol Records project, due out later this year.
