(Los Angeles, CA) October 12, 2022 - Putting the hip-hop game on notice is the Grammy-nominated songwriter Shawn Cook, hailing from The Golden State. Currently based in the LA area, Shawn Cook has built up a weighty fanbase off the back of well-received projects like 2018 singles, Clothes Off, and The Distance, gaining him a lot of traction in industry circles.

Following up on the swelling wave of momentum that his music catalog has produced so far, Shawn Cook continues to impress on the rap landscape with a new single and music video release titled “Stay,” courtesy of the record label Queens Gambit. 

Directed by Andres Flores, the pristine production on “Stay” maintains the core hip-hop trap sound with its booming bassline and low end, complimented with harmonic phrases giving the track an R&B feel to an extent. Featuring a hybrid rap flow, Shawn Cook exhibits bold bravado and melodic flow while talking about love from the perspective of someone who’s drained by all games and ultimatums and yet, still pulled back despite recognizing it’s a toxic relationship. 

I won’t accept your ultimatum or requirements... 

love me just for who I am... no judge-a-ment…

Time wit out you’s gettin harder for me to spend... 

let’s go in just for the night.. n do it all again... 

Let’s catch a vibe

Let’s catch a vibe...”

About Shawn Cook

Duranta Deshawn Cook, professionally known as Shawn Cook, started his musical journey at a young age, inspired by his late mother, Theresa Mccall. He was first seen writing lyrics at 12 and doing studio sessions by 14. Two years after, he had a few songs, and that’s when he knew music would be his life. Influenced by the luminaries like David Bowie, Sting, Mac Dre, E-40, and more, Shawn Cook never failed to exude his diverse craftsmanship on every project he touches on. Which led him to a Grammy nomination for his contributions to J-Boog’s 2017 album, “Rose Petals,” a gold plaque for co-writing Marc E. Bassy’s 2016 pop hit “Morning,” and BET Jams features this year for his latest track, “Stay.”

My aim is to make timeless music. Music that will still sound fresh 20 years from now. I’m done with trying to make trendy music that’s only good for right now.” - Shawn Cook
