Earlier this year, Ike Rhein released a hit song with Luh Kel titled, "Messed It Up." The single has accumulated about 500,000 streams, and the music video has eclipsed one million views. Building on the success of the record, Ike Rhein is back with an acoustic version of "Messed It Up." The acoustic version of "Messed It Up" brandishes heavenly piano chords from KMKZ and is slowed down to accentuate Sogimura's production and Ike Rhein's powerful, emotive vocals.

"Messed It Up" details how hindsight is 20/20. The record is about longing to change something about yourself in order to belong with someone else, but realizing that the whole thing was just a misunderstanding in your head. "Messed It Up" is about taking a failed relationship, turning it into a learning experience, and reflecting on yourself. "There will always be a chance to find love or 'the one,' if you will." Ike Rhein continues, "The hardest part is that sometimes you’ll never know if someone is right for you until you realize someone was wrong for you."

The acoustic version of "Messed It Up" was mixed and mastered by multi-platinum, Grammy-nominated Vinny DeLeon. The release serves as almost a teaser for his upcoming track, "Violin." "Violin" drops next week on Friday, April 22nd. The record will be released alongside an epic, breathtaking music video. Stay tuned, but for now, put both versions of "Messed It Up" on repeat and decide which is your favorite!

Kobenz Talks Latest Single, Working with Katy Rose, and Much More

Kobenz is an Alternative artist from Minneapolis, MN. Kobenz's artistic journey only started a couple of years ago. In 2020, Kobenz was hospitalized following an attempt at taking his own life. He had been battling major depression and PTSD stemming from an abusive partner. As he could no longer handle his course work, Kobenz dropped out of school and took to poetry as a form of therapy. Poetry soon turned into music, and Kobenz began to amass a cult-like fanbase following his release of "Sour Lemon," which is a rework of the 2004 Billboard hit, "Lemon," by Katy Rose. Kobenz's "Sour Lemon" garnered millions of streams, was spun at major radio stations, and was featured on countless media outlets such as EARMILK, Visual Atelier 8, The Hype Magazine, and HipHopSince1987. "Sour Lemon" was also chosen by Rock legend Oli Sykes of Bring Me the Horizon as one of his top five picks for the Spotify editorial playlist, "Misfits 2.0." Kobenz capitalized on the success of "Sour Lemon" and followed up with several critically-acclaimed releases that raised his status in the underground scene. Kobenz recently completed a tour with mainstream Alternative artist Call Me Karizma. Kobenz's latest release, "Diary of a Simpy Kid," has already racked up over 150,000 streams in its first week. Kobenz's unique, gritty, and emotive sound is what the industry has been missing and waiting for.
