Montreal-based hip-hop sensation Taigenz is back with a bang, dropping the visually captivating narrative of temptation in his latest afro-beat fusion single, Knock My Door.​ In this musical escapade, Taigenz skillfully weaves together melodic xylophone riffs, infectious vocals, and danceable afrobeat-infused grooves. The result is a tantalizing story of a night filled with temptation, where hidden romance takes center stage. 

Featuring the silky vocals of Marion Brunelle in the chorus, the allure of forbidden love is unmistakably conveyed as she croons, “If you knock my door / You ain’t going home.” Produced in collaboration with Latino maestro Nueva Vista, the track showcases Taigenz’s prowess in seamlessly blending diverse musical influences, proving that he refuses to be confined by any genre.

But Knock My Door is not just a standalone hit. It’s the opening act for Taigenz’s upcoming project, where he promises to authentically represent the bridge connecting his African roots to his North American upbringing. This revelation further solidifies Taigenz as an artist unafraid to explore and transcend the boundaries of musical genres.

Taigenz explains: “The song is about going somewhere to look for a bit of trouble with someone you’re not supposed to be with. It’s the first single off my upcoming project where I fully represent the bridge that connects my African roots to my North American upbringing.”

Hailing from Montreal, Taigenz is a dynamic force embodying multicultural influences that resonate through his music. With roots tracing back to Cameroon, he effortlessly blends Trap, R&B, and Afro-beat, creating a sound that is uniquely his own. Drawing comparisons to the likes of 50 Cent in vocal tone and Wale, Burna Boy in lyricism and visuals, Taigenz is a rising star making waves in the global music scene.

In 2019, Taigenz made a significant impact with his album Life Ain’t Free, distributed through Slammin Media/Believe Distribution Services. Tracks such as Lemme Ball and Speak The Truth garnered over 100,000 streams from international markets, showcasing his broad appeal. Taigenz’s commitment to his craft extends beyond the recording studio; he’s a comprehensive performer. Throughout the pandemic, he remained deeply connected to his fanbase through virtual performances, skits, and live streams, earning him accolades like the ‘Best Infused Hip-Hop Song’ at the Indie Grind Music Awards for his 2021 single Foolish Money.

As of 2023, Taigenz continues to break new ground with the Deluxe Version of his EP Life A Life. The lead single Pas Idée is already making waves on SiriusXM, setting new standards in the hip-hop genre. For those who seek complexity and nuance in both life and music, Taigenz doesn’t just offer tracks; he provides anthems that resonate with the intricacies of the human experience.
