Rap master Andras! Kállay Saunders goes gritty in “Grind” music video

At A Dal 2016 he stepped away from the bittersweet pop he brought to Eurovision 2014.

And now Hungarian-American pop star Andras Kállay Saunders and the Kállay Saunders Band have proved their change is here to stay, as they published the music video for their gritty new single “Grind”.

Embracing his New York roots, Andras only sings in the chorus and spends the bulk of the song throwing down rap with motivational messages about working tirelessly for what you want.

Occasionally explicit, the lyrics feature clever rhyming and plenty of heat: “Walk up in the spot and we make it hot, Always on the grind and we never stop, We reachin for the stars going to the top, Speakers loud make em pop…”

As with so many on-trend songs charting globally, this starts off with a melodic piano intro.

But things swiftly shift as Andras launches into rap, channeling anger and control in equal measure.

The song crosses genre, mixing R&B, dubstep, pop and even rock, suggesting the Kállay Saunders Band — the KSB — are keen to forge a genre all their own.

The music video is something rather beautiful too. Andras’ manbun is certainly up for discussion, but we can’t fault his braiding skills.

Andras and his band have been in constant demand since A Dal, performing at musical festivals and gigs all over the country.

Most recently they performed at the Budapest Balcony Festival, where they were joined by fellow A Dal alums Passed.

The band rocked out on a stunning rootop overlooking the Hungarian capital, bringing edge and grit to the picturesque city.

Get the look: Buy Andras’ red bandana and black trilby hat.

Grind Lyrics

I heard a voice inside my head
Sayin son slow down
Everything gone be alright
I’m gone grind until the day I die
I’m gone grind until the day I die
Day I die
Day I die
(Can’t nobody bring me down)
(Hustle hard till you get it)
(Can’t nobody bring me down)
I’m in a Dark room
Tryna find my way out
Full of scars wounds
I’m yelling it just fades out
Anybody listenin


I hate this world I’m livin in
The games a pot of s*** that I’m p****** in
Damn a ***** killin it, i’m rippin it
I spit it how I live it kid
Explicit s***
Straight crack
Dawg you should take a hit
You Should should take a hit
Dawg you should take a hit
(BUCK BUCK BUCK Man a ***** so serious)

Walk up in the spot and we make it hot
Always on the grind and we never stop
We reachin for the stars going to the top
Speakers loud make em pop
Big up to our fans
Man we owe a lot

I heard a voice inside my head
Sayin son slow down
Everything gone be alright
I’m gone grind until the day I die
I’m gone grind until the day I die
Day I die
Day I die
(Can’t nobody bring me down)
(Hustle hard till you get it)
(Can’t nobody bring me down)

I got dreams to make it big in this business
Big house nice cars not really interested
I’m into things that are priceless
Like a face in the front row screamin while she’s cryin
That’s the s*** i’m livin for
Makes me wanna get it more
Dreamin of a world tour
Encore Encore
Saunders give us one more
Encore Encore
Saunders give us one more

Walk up in the spot and we make it hot
Always on the grind and we never stop
We reachin for the stars going to the top
Speakers loud make em pop

Big up to our fans
Man we owe a lot

I heard a voice inside my head
Sayin son slow down
Everything gone be alright
I’m gone grind until the day I die
I’m gone grind until the day I die
Day I die
Day I die
(Can’t nobody bring me down)
(Hustle hard till you get it)
(Can’t nobody bring me down)

Ohhhh I heard a voice
Said I heard a voice inside my head
Oh son slow down down
Oh son slow down down
Oh son slow down down
Oh son slow down down

I heard a voice inside my head
OoooOOooo
Can’t no body body body body bring me down
Everything Everything Everything Everything
Gonna be alright
