Carry On shows us that positivity and hope don’t have to be these soft, tender things that are only talked about in more approachable pop tunes, but that they can serve an integral purpose in hip-hop as well.
Very rarely in life do you come across an artist that has immeasurable levels of talent with an innate star quality that can’t be learned, and just know it’s only a matter of time until they hit it big. Kingsley is one of those artists – his self-titled debut is a master class of the pop-rock genre.
It takes courage, openness & self-awareness to share how you feel with people. Be confident with yourself & okay with having some of your ideas turned down.
Brilliantly crafted, from the gentle ambiance to the creative variety as the beat moves along – everything presents equal parts professionalism & character.
A bold & unapologetically open song that presents a certain truth in a notably real way. You can hear the connection between singer & subject matter.
Takes full advantage of every second. Considers his audience, the fact that attention is fleeting & that to hold on to a new listener is no easy feat.
The soulful smoothness of any seductive R&B classic. Connects on a deep & intimate level, as well providing those essential good vibes we rely on music for.
The simplicity works really well, the production has a retro crackle about it that assists in building those classic vibes & the melody hits with impact.
Composed in a manner that consistently reflects the sentiment, over-flowing with genuine passion as the vocalist presents each & every moment of melody.
This call for help, this desperation, directed straight into your heart. The honesty is intense, but the music is smooth & mellow; the contrast is powerful.
Blissfully easy to listen to. His voice has the mellow yet sincere tone to carry the sentiment of the song in the most authentic & smooth manner possible.
There’s an underlying hopefulness, a thread of positivity that breathes new life into the music & offers a helping hand to those who are struggling.
