Mike Stud – Closer [Album]

Posted by on July 20, 2014


Studnation is back and it appears Mike is closer than he’s ever been with his latest album, Closer. In May, Mike released a video to let his fans know about his new album release. The teaser reflects on the journey Mike has made from being a star baseball prospect to an even bigger prospect as a musician. This album shows growth and maturity in Mike’s life and music. He is most focused on being happy and letting the success follow. Does he have room to grow and improve? Most certainly he does, but even Mike knows he has a long journey ahead of him.

The lead singles of the album, “Closer” and “All Good” are some of the best pieces he’s done to date. “You Already Know” is loaded with Mike’s famous one-liners, such as, “I never got it on safety, whip all black Donald Sterling would hate me,” and the best Johnny Manziel verse we’ve heard yet, sorry Drake, “I’m gettin faded on the flight, call me Denzel, and they can’t believe I’m white, Johnny Manziel.”

“Closer” shows the range of songs Mike is capable of laying down. There is a good mix of pop and hip-hop throughout the album. Is that bad? I’m not sure. The numbers say no, as “Closer” was #1 on the hip hop charts for almost a week after its’ release and currently sits at #8. Mike’s connection with his fans through social media will continue to grow Studnation. Mike Trout and Johnny Manziel along with many other pro athletes have taken notice of his work, it’s time the music industry does too. This album shows growth from previous projects, and I can’t wait to see what Mike comes up with next. UHYUUP!
