Dreamy production brings together sultry RnB with contemporary trap, while the relentless outpouring of a rap vocal injects a clear sense of character in tone and subject. BabyNyquil gets personal, intimate and honest throughout a heartbroken Til The End…
Contrast working to a bold degree, the single features a notably delicate, calming soundscape, of gentle chord strums and light rhythms. This softness is consistently juxtaposed by the consistency and pace of the rap vocal.
The hook offers a similar presence and flow to the verse, the music just falls away a little – things get less intense just briefly. So for the most part, the whole track feels like a diary entry or private letter – an organised freestyle, to some extent.
In full, the calm of late night escapism combines with the passion and desperation of a heartbroken writer. Fearless vulnerability connects for its humanity and openness. It will be interesting to hear where else the music takes BabyNyquil in the coming months.
