I like that grunge of a voice that almost screams a certain bar at you for emphasis. Not scream necessarily, but puts some grizzliness into a line. Melo does that when he sings “at the speeeed of liiight” and “collecting residuals”. Reaches through the scream and grabs ya.
soft spot for rappers that sing their own choruses.
This sounds like it should be on the sidetrack of an indie movie about off-the-beat high schoolers who listen to old school rap and wear JNCOs. When they fall in love and kiss at the end of the movie this is going in the background. Dear Hollywood please hire me.
A little reggae vibe. A little brunch vibe. A little club vibe.
Stick around for the switch-up at the end.
You’ll quickly learn with me that I’m a sucker for any sort of hip with even the slightest semblance of piano incorporated.
