“‘CTRL U’ is a perfect song to listen to when you’ve poured into somebody else but you don’t get the same kinda love back,” recalls Galaxy Francis. “That’s something you can’t control. You just gotta know your intention was pure to uplift them. If it backfires, don’t let them run back to you when the streets break their heart. This is one of many unique takes on love from SiDE B and is where my persona ‘Sir Francis’ reigns. More melodic, R&B, more poignant songwriting to pinpoint certain feelings.”
iNNERGALACTiC: SiDE B represents a new world in the Galaxy Francis universe. The project showcases his broad range of vocals and harmonies while also revealing a more vulnerable and mellow side of Galaxy Francis.
Of the EP, Galaxy Francis says, “The songs on iNNERGALACTiC were made with no intention of becoming a full project. The iNNERGALACTiC series as a whole was born out of a need to build a fan base. I finished a full length album in 2022 (unreleased) but realized, as a new artist, I needed to develop my brand and story first. It formed into a 9 track LP, and was later split into 2 sides to accommodate today’s fast paced music consumption. iNNERGALACTiC is meant to be an appetizer, if you will, to showcase my scope of skills and bring you into my universe before a full length album. SiDE B acts as an introduction to his R&B tendencies.”
Galaxy Francis is a multi-hyphenate rapper, singer and producer who has a love for clever one-liners and themed albums with heartfelt vocal arrangements, reminiscent of prime 90’s Jodeci and Ginuwine. Inspired by artists such as Missy Elliot, Frank Ocean and Future, Galaxy Francis thrives in his ability to be unapologetically himself.
Galaxy Francis has appeared on Spotify’s Fresh Finds and Mellow Bars Playlists while also receiving support from Ebro’s Beats 1 Show. Throughout his young career, he has opened for Dreamville’s Omen and XVR Omar and Wale during his Shine Tour.
