Touching on topics from talent to hard work and inspiring positivity, Bobby Life’s nostalgic rap style and calming, piano-led ambiance introduce a thoughtful aura for the single Walk Alone.
Reflecting on difficult times, a cold world in desperate need of a little more warmth, Bobby makes his way through this sub-two-minute single in an almost stream-of-consciousness, freestyle fashion.
While there’s nothing particularly ground-breaking about the style or the flow, there’s a certain integrity and heart to the writing, which is effectively reinforced by the accompanying visuals that showcase the artist lost in performance.
His bars grow more impressive throughout, seeing him barely pause for breath in between arranging long-form lines and ideas that consistently link back, in poetic ways, to the underlying sentiments. He touches on the differences between artists who make it and those who don’t – not merely talent, but hard work and consistency are what make it happen.
The single is a fitting introduction to Bobby Life, and there’s plenty more where this came from over on Soundcloud.
