Eddy Puyol "Bang Bang Baby"

Eddy Puyol returns with his first release of 2023

Bang Bang Baby is a summertime anthem that’s ready to kick off the season.

In 2001, Jay-Z famously dissed NaS by rapping, “So, yeah I sampled your voice, you was usin’ it wrong / You made it a hot line, I made it a hot song.” Twenty-two years later, Eddy Puyol is using the same Blueprint for his new single Bang Bang Baby – but in a twist, he’s the author of both the hotline and hot song.

Puyol produced the bouncy track with help from longtime collaborator Chuck Hemman. The hook pulls from the artist’s career-reflecting single “This One’s For You.”

“That phrase (‘Bang bang baby’) has been a thing in my household for a while,” Puyol said. “A few months back I was watching football and it just sort of popped out of my mouth after a key play. My wife noticed how catchy it was and then the creative juices started flowing to make it into the hook of a new song.”

The end result is a funky, Summertime-esque song that showcases Puyol’s ability to rap double time. With playful rhymes designed to motivate everyone from athletes to academics to anime-loving adults. “I don’t often rap that fast, but wanted to challenge myself to do something different,” Puyol said. “I believe listeners will be happy with the results.”

And as always, Eddy Puyol incorporates his love for high-level sports with a nod to the iconic SportsCenter theme.

Bang Bang Baby and the companion visual (filmed by award-winning director Will Thomas in the same location as Puyol’s recent nuptials) are now available online. Look for it on your favorite digital service provider platforms (Apple Music, Spotify, Pandora, etc.) and social media sites.

Eddy Puyol "Vibes & Visions"

Following the release of his latest album, Eddy Puyol reminds listeners how deep his catalog is.

Puyol, formally known as Rawsrvnt, has put two decades into making music. You simply don’t make it that long in this industry without both skill and dedication. You also tend to have multiple records that fans keep on repeat.

Vibes & Visions is a collection of hits that is sure to set the right mood no matter where you’re at.

In the gym, at the beach, or on the dance floor – Vibes & Visions covers it all.

The playlist (featured on Apple Music, Spotify, Pandora, and YouTube) contains classics from “Game Changer” to “The Almighty” to “Sigue Pa’ Lante”. It really has it all.

The 20-song playlist includes several of Christian rap’s iconic artists, such as:

  • Lil Raskull
  • Richie Righteous
  • Pettidee
  • Von Won
  • Pyrexx
  • Japhia Life
  • Canton Jones

Vibes & Visions was highlighted by Pandora AMP

Eddy Puyol has dropped a new album.

If you really want to get to know a person you should peep their playlist.

Experiencing a collection of music they’ve curated for inspiration, entertainment, and emotional release can provide the listener with a profound understanding of the soul behind the souls.

This is especially true when the subject of interest is a recording artist.

Pronounced Pooh-Yole serves as a brief Eddy Puyol audio biography.

Puyol shares his successes under the “Rawsrvnt” stage moniker, educating audiences about how to say his last name, and providing a peek into his life filled with faith, family, and fortitude.

“It’s Over” embodies Puyol’s family mantra to finish what you start. “Sigue Pa’ Lante” (used during ESPN’s Monday Night Football broadcast) is not transformed into the 100% Spanish-language track Puyol has always desired. The album also includes the pop/trap/love record “To the Moon” along with “Forever Love” (a recent pick for Pandora’s “Dad Songs for Sons and Daughters” playlist).

The song Puyol is most excited to share is “This One’s for You”.

This sunny, “Summertime”-esque track recounts his career as a full-time artist. It also cleverly samples vocals recorded when Eddy was just 11-years old.

“This was where it all started, rapping with Ms. Mary’s ‘Kid ‘N Posse’ youth group team back at Word of Life Church,” Puyol recalled. “I sampled her voice for the record too. It’s a special memory for me and, hopefully, a jam for you.”

The track’s visual component is comprised of performance and personal highlight reel footage. Shot by Will Thomas, the video is a first-time collaboration. The duo utilized a state-of-the-art 30ft x 10ft LED screen at Crossover Church as a backdrop.

Both the “This One’s for You” video and Pronounced Pooh-Yole are now available.

Look for it on your favorite digital service provider platforms and Eddy Puyol social media sites.

The phrase It’s Over can convey countless emotions. The speaker can say it with reluctant resignation, fed-up frustration, or even Vince Carter-level confidence. And if you’re anything like Eddy Puyol, you’ve probably experienced all three at some point.

On his latest single the artist revisits times in his life when he’s had to say It’s Over out loud. The energetic pop anthem reinterprets lyrics from his 2017 track “Shut It Down” and embodies a longstanding family mantra: “Finish what you start. And if you start something, then leave it better than you found it.”

Monday Night Football used Eddy Puyol’s song to celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month.

“Dale mi gente” could be heard loud and clear on ESPN’s October 4, 2021 telecast of MNF.

The shouting Puyol cut through as the Las Vegas Raiders scored a touchdown against the Los Angeles Chargers. His song Sigue Pa’ Lante hit the airwaves on the national broadcast. What made it even more special? The record is Puyol’s first bilingual release. The worldwide leader in sports utilized the song throughout the network’s coverage as the league recognized National Hispanic Heritage Month.

“It’s a surreal feeling to hear your art, and heart, shared on one of the biggest sports platforms in the world,” Puyol said. “I’m so thankful that ESPN believes in me and supports me the way they do.”

The clip from the broadcast can be viewed on Puyol’s YouTube channel here:

Eddy Puyol steps back into soul singer mode for To the Moon. A vibey record built for cruising down the boulevard with your loved one by your side.

The track mixes both machine and analog instrumentation. The lyrics allow listeners to float in that wonderful dream state that accompanies a rich relationship.

I’m just in a happy place in life and love has exploded in my heart once again,” Puyol said. He penned the lyrics while driving home from church on Valentine’s Day.

The music for To the Moon was inspired by a trap beat supplied by recently-departed producer Kyle “Xplicit Truth” Wishon. Seeking a more organic feel for the record, Puyol enlisted longtime collaborator Chuck Hemann. Hemann evolved its sound with live instruments and a throwback essence.

What we ended up with was magic,” Puyol said. “I think ‘To the Moon’ would fit perfectly on radio stations or playlists beside hits from Silk Sonic [Bruno Mars + Anderson .Paak], Drake or Justin Timberlake.”

For visuals, Puyol once again connected with iAMbayo.net for a lyric video that captures the “love letter” feel of the song. The clip ends with a photo from Eddy’s parents’ first year of marriage – a feature made even more special by the track’s release date (September 3) which happens to be their 45th wedding anniversary.
