As the month of love creeps up on us, one of my favorite local Alternative R&B artists Bacci gives us some love tunes to VYB to on his second official EP – . L O V E D R U N K . ❣️
A seamless mix of effortless vocal prowess, catchy hooks, fire bars and a mind blowing set of features over Urban beats will take you on a journey of new love, compromise, realization and acceptance – feelings we can all relate to.
. L O V E D R U N K . opens with VYB (featuring local upcoming rapper Chuck Van Dusty), a mellow R&B tune that sees Bacci & Mr Van Dusty dangling the carrot for a potential love interest.
“Baby, baby, baby when you’re ready
I’ll be right over here when you can find me
I know you love the way that we be vibin’
We vibin’…good vibin’…”,
Bacci sings on the hook.
Apt that this one is the opening number as the song lays the foundation for a solid mixtape, the same way it lays the foundation for that three pointer for anyone seeking to shoot their shot. Ask her to download this one and let her know how you feel, bro. Thank me later.
. A C C O M M O D A T E . follows with a feature by The Fake.
Compromise – we’ve all been here. Bacci teaches us the art, singing flawlessly about the importance of communication in a relationship that’s recently taken a hit.
“Tell me what’s on your mind
Won’t interrupt my grind
I could still accommodate ya (x2)
Tell me you still feel me
Tell me you still love me
I could still accommodate ya (x2)”
The lead single to the EP, this one has been out for almost a month but if you haven’t listened yet here’s your chance to, amidst the other numbers on this project. The Fake bring the bars on this one, have you doing the Milly Rock to a love song – game changers.
When I heard Isabella on . I S S A L I E . (I love this play on words btw) I was quick to search for her other stuff, she brings the sweetest soprano to take this jam to a whole other level as her and Bacci sing about a significant other and not seeing eye to eye anymore – probably because of all the lies.
“Can’t even get a quick reply
But you be posting shxt all day online
Even when a nigga say he dying
Say you do but issa lie…
Cause you don’t care if I’m breathing fine
Say you do but issa lie…”
You know the feeling? Waiting on a reply and you get nothing but see them post all over the TL? This is your jam…raise your “+1s” because you relate!
Let me just state that at first listen, THIS was my fave!
Jedi joins the . L O V E D R U N K . party on . L A M B D A ., a song about the excitement of a new love – the discovery of each other, proving your love and laying yourself bare for that one.
“I feel we’re swimming in the same wavelength
On the same frequency
And I can’t wait to feel our souls aligning together…”
Intricate Alt. instrumentals highlight the feels of this non traditional love song. Jedi doesn’t disappoint either as he enters with the bars at 3:10, definitely a rapper to look out for.
. E Y E S . feels a little short, like an interlude, as Bacci sings about controlling love – a love that feels like your every move is being watched, but not in a positive light. Like living under someone’s spotlight.
“Where is all your love?” he belts out repeatedly.
. L O V E D R U N K . closes off with a feature by Tale Sheezy on . B L E N D I N . with that 90’s R&B boy band feel. When I heard this one, I saw dancing in the rain, buttons undone, girl looking down from her bedroom window, candle lit bubble baths, roses and all the cliché R&B things. Definitely one for the 90’s kids and for Valentines Day.
“Blending’ witchu girl…we could meet in the middle…”
Besides how my favorite genre is R&B I love the number of collaborations on this project, bringing our upcoming talent together so beautifully.
. L O V E D R U N K . is a solid effort – Bacci could easily play in the league of Chris Browns, DVSNs and Frank Oceans of R&B.
