Expect the nostalgic good vibes of smooth jazz and RnB in strong supply on this single from Chris Legacy – as well as one of the most subtly memorable hooks the genre has seen in quite some time.
Hello is a classically enjoyable track – rather than breaking the mold or utilizing anything overly quirky or loud to get attention, the song draws strength from the simplicity of its own set-up. This instrumental aura and Legacy’s softly soulful leading voice are all that’s needed – these pave the way for a track that kindly pays tribute to a significant other, appreciating the little things, from the very first moments shared to longevity and the deeper connection; and the beauty of all of it.
While the song is close to impossible to dislike in itself – a fine performance, gorgeous vibes and a lovely organic arrangement, you actually come to notice more of the intricacies and details with each re-visit. The softness and subtle rhythm of the soundscape has definite flickers of character that are recognisable after a while, and the effortless manner in which Legacy moves from mild falsetto to bolder moments of weight adds further personality and helps seal the deal. Rarely do you come across a performance so united with the free-flowing aura of the song it presents these days, that classic inspiration shines brightly, and still Hello comes through with the crisp, clean qualities of a contemporary hit. A welcomed addition to 2019’s ocean of music.
