Cesare’s return brings a smooth yet bright new beat and a melodically satisfying RnB vibe – whilst also tipping its hat to the contemporary sounds of the hip hop landscape.
Joining forces with Carti Bankx, Cesare drives with a high energy performance on this single – rhythmically filling out the soundscape with relentless lyricism and a meandering use of melody that subtly but surely lifts the mood as it progresses.
Shake It Fast is a track that talks on the search for love or a lasting, meaningful relationship with someone as hard working as the artist – as opposed to forever chasing empty connections and being left uninspired. The concept takes its time to emerge, the featured vocal during the second verse leads with a little more clarity – a mellow energy takes over as these central ideas are highlighted. Then you get the drop back to the hook, a moment of simple familiarity with a likable, memorable groove.
The beat remains light and colourful throughout, leaving the listener feeling uplifted by its good vibes. That sense of depth in the writing, though subtle, also offers a strong effect. Shake It Fast makes for an impressive collaboration and a clearly intentional, audience-aware piece of music and writing.
