Coming out of Inglewood, California is Griff Tyler. The singer-songwriter is coming off of his single “Coffee”, which was released just a couple weeks ago. Tyler looks to maintain his momentum for his latest single, “Guarded” featuring fellow Los Angeles native, Airplane James.
The instrumental for this song was brought to us by producer Viper Beats (credits for Haiti Babii, Peso Peso, Nef The Pharoah, among others). The track consists of an evident love story, to go along with a catchy hook. These elements go perfectly with Airplanes James’ verse that matches the theme of the song perfectly. To go along with the brand new track, Griff Tyler released pairing visuals. The music video is directed by videographers Patrick Haynes & Will McBride, who have previously worked with Blxst, 1TakeOcho, and TeeJay3k. The duo were also responsible for the visuals for Griff Tyler’s “Coffee”.
“Guarded” is a melodic R&B track that still manages to be hip-hop and street. Griff Tyler & Airplane James team up to make a solid tandem. “Guarded” is out now on all streaming platforms, and the music video is out on YouTube.
