A new single is about to emerge from the independent music vault. When a new song is brought to my attention, I am always eager to listen, hopeful to hear something with edge; something different. It is known that hip hop and R&B are the perfect couple when it comes to song presentation. Both genres connect with one another similar to two inseparable soulmates. Reflect back to the 90’s and early 2000’s; the days when music grabbed your soul. Now, add the musical sounds of today’s industry to that image; perfection!
“Timid” by Brxtn featuring Marc Dinero is a captivating new song filled with heart touching lyrics, melodies, and word play. Both artists make it apparent that they have put everything into this enchanting track. The song begins with a piano, drawing in the listener as they are unsure of what to expect next. Brxtn begins singing the catchy hook, allowing the audience to sing along with him.
“Been trying to remedy, remedy ohhh, to make you feel better. Quit moving timidly, timidly my love cause I’ll love you better.”
While Brxtn conveys his unique sound, I also captured a glimpse of heavy hitters such as Chris Brown. Not only does Brxtn sing, but he also raps…another surprise within this hit song. Being dually talented will surely assist this artist in reaching success as he will be deemed a double threat in the industry. As Brxtn rapped, I held onto every lyric:
“I’d rather roll around with you than watch some Netflix. Spend a band and put your name up on my necklace. Used to have the block locked down like it’s Tetris.”
As the song continued to play, it became obvious that the artists were attempting to persuade their love interests to leave the men they are currently with so they can experience what a real man is. Marc Dinero does an amazing job at portraying empathy towards his love interest while describing what it would be like if she were in a relationship with him.
“You may not be that outspoken. I see your emotions. You’re mentally tired. But please let me show you that ni*** you with…He don’t know you and he cannot meet your desires. Really you know that I’m that ni***. Put me in position to be your provider.”
Brxtn and Marc Dinero may have a hit on their hands! “Timid” is everything a listener seeks in a song; relatable, catchy, melodic, and touching. This is certainly one of the best tracks I have set ears on recently. I cannot wait for you to hear it! “Timid” is due to be released on January 29th!
