Javonte Pollard is a singer/songwriter that has been building an nice resume for himself over the last couple of years. The Nebraska-born, Bay-Area raised talented made his way to Los Angeles after high school to pursue his education and music. He began to generate buzz via social media and things started to take off from there. He was featured on Kendrick Lamar’s single “She Needs Me”,” Opposites Attract (Tomorrow Without Her)” off of Lamar’s project “Overly Dedicated” and also on “County Building Blues” off of the Grammy nominated album “Good Kid, M.A.A.D City.” He also co-wrote the record “FYH” off of the Grammy nominated album “Three Kings” from TGT.
I didn’t hear about Javonte until I stumbled across his Tae Beast produced song “Supernova.” I did some research and realized that I had heard his voice before on Kendrick’s projects. This young man puts time into his melodies, harmonies, and songwriting and it shows in his work. I hoping he has a project in the works, but for now you can check out the work he has available on Soundcloud and Bandcamp. There are original gems and some solid covers for your listening pleasures.
