Eric Bellinger & super producer Hitmaka release their new album
Today, 2x GRAMMY-nominated, multi-platinum singer/songwriter Eric Bellinger and super producer Hitmaka release their new album ‘1(800) HIT-EAZY: LINE 2’ via All Wins Ent./EMPIRE. The project is accompanied by the official video to the unheard single, “Sum 2 See” featuring buzzing newcomer Blxst.
The highly anticipated album, ‘1(800) HIT-EAZY: LINE 2’, follows Eric’s critically acclaimed GRAMMY- nominated album ‘New Light’ and is the second instalment of the ‘1(800) HIT-EAZY’ series from the artist and producer duo. The 14-track project features special appearances from Fabolous, Cordae, Tink, Blxst, Kalan.FrFr, and recent GRAMMY winner Muni Long in addition to previously released hit singles, “Obsession,” “Obsession” Remix ft. Muni Long, the gym anthem “BNB” (Brand New Body) and “Decide.”
Speaking about the project, Eric shares, “For the first time in a long time, I stepped outside of talking about my personal relationship & emotions to speak on behalf of the fellas! If you listen to the project from start to finish, you hear a 14-track story filled with love, vulnerability, and betrayal but this time from the male’s perspective. We hear a lot about men living double lives, but we never heard the story when the roles are reversed. I took it upon myself to tell the story of the side dude.”

Accompanied alongside the album is an official music video for “Sum 2 See” featuring buzzing artist Blxst. The track samples the 1988 popular hit “Piece of My Love” by R&B group Guy and is directed by frequent collaborator Keoni Mars (Ty Dolla $ign, Masego). “Sum 2 See” visually picks up where “Obession” left off, as Bellinger’s love interest finally gives him a chance to date.
Bellinger is currently on the road for The “Obsession Tour” which is his first solo headlining tour with Trevor Jackson, Kyle Banks and more as openers. No stranger to the industry, Bellinger’s music has garnered over 2 billion streams across various streaming platforms WORLDWIDE . He received recognition for his work when he won a Grammy in the Best R&B Album category for his contributions to Chris Brown’s ‘F.A.M.E.’ which included the hit songs “She Ain’t You” and “Say It with Me”. In addition to that, he has co-written songs for Usher, Brandy and Justin Bieber.
