X-Rated is the jaw-droppingly explicit new single from artist & songwriter Jamar Germain. The title is undeniably true to the concept, and this is the perfect RnB-Pop crossover song to see music fans through to the upcoming brighter seasons.
There’s a lot of space on this record, the vibe is light & atmospheric – laying bare certain ideas & really keeping your focus on the thoughts within, as well as allowing you that room & that time to consider & understand it all.
Not only does Alexa Morgan have a beautifully smooth, soulful singing voice, but All Night Long has a really great sense of rhythm about it, and this comes through in everything all at once.
The vibe of the whole track works well in making certain you remember & recognise it later on. The ongoing feeling of possibility is powerful, it makes for a hugely compelling few minutes of audio.
The hook offers up a gentle & smooth melody – a beautifully soulful vocal line – whereas the rap verses present a much grittier, detailed exploration of the song’s underlying concept. The way these opposing sections are arranged is superb.
The project brings back the artist’s uniquely creative approach to music production. This is the work of a composer, a musical craftsman. The sound is so crisp & real yet equally smooth & dreamlike.
The song has been superbly well crafted. Despite the electronic edge of the music, the humanity of the piece is unquestionable. The leading voice has a mellow sense of wondering & passion, carrying the song’s sentiment brilliantly.
Softly bringing together the emotion of soul music & the smoothness of RnB, this is a fairly minimalist, dreamlike song that lays its melody, ambiance, and sentiment before you in a subtle yet captivating way.
This is definitely one of the more interesting & genuine pop releases of recent years, and that’s not at the cost of quality – far from it. These songs are supremely well polished. Celeste Buckingham is making waves & it’s no wonder why.
The RnB style melody that plays the part of a verse section adds a new dynamic, the instrumental breaks are well placed, and without question, you only need to hear the single once to remember it indefinitely.
This meeting of the organic & electronic is notable throughout. The possibilities are unlimited when you get the songwriting down in such a way as this.
The RnB-fusion producer & songwriter has been playing the saxophone since the 4th grade – this gem of a trait comes through beautifully throughout the single.
