Financial services company Synchrony has teamed up with Issa Rae and her label Raedio to release a 3-song mixtape, The Bankroll EP, where the songs take you on a journey towards financial responsibility.
Many know Issa Rae from her hit HBO series Insecure which is coming up on its last season soon. Music played such an important part in the shows that Issa was a part of, so it is no surprise that she created a music label. But she is so much more than the loveable personas that we see on screen. This multi-talented actress, writer, and producer has been making a lane for herself, as well as other young black creatives.
Synchrony Bank is a premier financial services company that provides customized financing programs across top industries. Two main categories that they service are the healthcare and retail industries. They aim to assist businesses to increase their sales, using up to date technology innovations, build customer loyalty, and enhance the overall customer service experience. Adapting to our current world and use of technology, Synchrony has a plugin that allows you to easily access their financial solutions from anywhere.
This collaboration may be a little surprising to some. It is not the first time that these two have partnered up for a project, though. They debuted a short film called Pay Day at the 2020 Tribeca Film Festival. The film project is like The Bankroll EP, telling the story of a young frivolous spender, who learns to save instead of spending every time she earns a paycheck.
