Some artists search tirelessly for a crossover hit that will draw new fans into the mix with their current followers. Rockie Fresh could have one of those hits on his hands with the Mike Daley-produced Breakthrough, featuring Houston veteran Chamillionaire. Breakthrough walks you through Rockie’s reflections as an artist hovering around the cusp of national awareness. Securing a feature from Chamillionaire doesn’t hurt either, as the platinum-selling emcee gives Rockie pointers to consider in his search for success in the music game. The chorus, while effective, could benefit from a club/radio mix, amping it up to true anthemic heights, but regardless, the “little train that could” message is universally understood and appreciated. Breakthrough isn’t set for inclusion on Fresh’s forthcoming, untitled/unscheduled album, but those digging it should stay tuned for further details on the project, whose lead single, No Fear, is scheduled to drop in the weeks ahead.
