Raised in the Wild
A game changer.
A powerful lead single off what promises to be a game changing debut album. Fresh, raw, uncensored, and just what we need.
Can't wait for the rest of the album
Heard these guys on Hard Knocks. Good first release, waiting for American Muscle!
About 1 AMVRKA
A duo whose music combines the sensibilities of pop, Americana, and hip-hop, while their lyrics celebrate the common struggles of American life, 1 AMVRKA (pronounced "One America") was formed by Jesse Scott and Rudy Maya. Scott is a vocalist and lyricist who scored a hit in 2014 with the track "FML (F My Life)," while Maya is a producer, instrumentalist, and composer who has worked with Rihanna, Anahi, and Rye Rye. The two paired up and began writing material together, taking the name 1 AMVRKA to reflect their desire to make music that would help unite a divided nation by offering something for everyone. In 2016, the duo had landed a record deal with Capitol Records, and in December of that year they dropped their debut single, "Raised in the Wild." A number that reflected the struggles that played a frequent role in Jesse's life, "Raised in the Wild" fared well on streaming services, and a follow-up, "American Muscle," followed in February 2017. ~ Mark Deming
