‘Lowkey’ is a chill blend of R&B and Hip Hop that is nothing but ‘LowKey’…no really. R47 might assume to some to have softer bars than most are used to but he makes up for the energy in one of the best Choruses in independent hip hop for 2019.
Tell me wait, wait Baby
I don’t usually fall for these signs
And my mind is clear about how you feel inside
This I gotta know…This ain’t no time to waste my time
I like the way, you always showing
Staying Lowkey cause that’s how we do it
‘Lowkey’ is a perfect representation of a placement ready track that feels like it was exclusively produced for TV and Film placement. We have seen this trend in independent and emerging Hip Hop in the past few years as artists have gotten smarter. Rather than wait for a track to climb the charts and catch the attention of a producer, artists are producing placement ready tracks with melody’s that pair nicely with visually dramatic elements. ‘Lowkey’ is a step in the right direction for R47 and should keep compounding his efforts!
