TORONTO, June 22, 2022 – Today, celebrated Toronto entertainer and JUNO Award winning Hip-Hop artist, songwriter and producer Classified (aka Luke Boyd) teams up with Canada’s Queen of R&B Soul and multiple JUNO and Gemini Award winning artist Jully Black on the reimagined video for Classified’s “Young Soul”.

The track, emphasizing life’s many lessons in growth and learning how to let go and move on, will be included on Classified’s forthcoming acoustic album “RETROSPECTED” due out June 29. The authentically unique album spans a collective of musical genres and features multiple Canadian artists and icons of their respective musical genres.

About the latest release of ‘Young Soul’ Classified shares, “I’m excited to put this one out as the original version of this song was one of my favourites that I ever wrote, but I was always a little disappointed that I never got to make it a single or share a video…until now. I hope everyone takes these lyrics in and can relate to them on some level.”

Jully Black adds “Classified is an intentional human being. He’s one of the world’s best lyricists who has always chosen his collaborators in ways I’ve respected, always with purpose. So, when he reached out about a song with such deep meaning and sentiment the “YES” beamed from my heart and out of my mouth with ease.”

BOTH ARTISTS WILL JOIN INSTAGRAM LIVE TONIGHT AT 8PM EST TO TALK ABOUT THE SENTIMENTAL COLLABORATION

Later this year, Classified will head out on “The RETROSPECTED Tour” with special guest Reeny Smith. Kicking off on October 14 in Peterborough, the tour will head to 24+ cities including Hamilton, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Calgary, Vancouver, Windsor and more before wrapping in Nova Scotia in March of 2023.
