has become one of music’s hottest commodities in a matter of weeks
The cause of the hype? Hard work and his album mixtape, nostalgia, ULTRA.
I’ve listened to it for over a month. Whenever start playing it, it stays on a constant loop and not many artists get me to do that. I’m not sure how to classify him; R&B singer doesn’t seem to fit completely, but I think it’s close. So since I think he, and this album, is so great, I figured I’d spread the word, just in case you all hadn’t heard it yet.
I love the entire mixtape, but my favorites are strawberry swing (shout out to Coldplay), we all try, songs for women, lovecrimes, and american wedding (shout out to The Eagles). I absolutely love his take on Coldplay’s Strawberry Swing and he probably won me over as soon as I heard it, since I love Coldplay. And since Hotel California is one of favorite songs in existence, I was happy that he did well with using that one for american wedding.
