A Christmas hit with a difference, rising star Lardi B collaborates with Projext for this beautiful pop-hip-hop crossover; one that pays tribute to those who matter, those we hold close – particularly at this time of year.
This take on the concept of the Holidays is familiar and accessible, yet presented in a musically fresh manner. The seasonal vibe is alive and well, and still the track manages to offer something new, a break from the usual playlist, and a strong introduction to everyone featured.
Dielog’s production adds further class and professionalism to the song, fusing well with the energy and good intentions of the writing and the performances.
The holidays mean nothing without you resounds in a subtle yet memorable fashion, and meanwhile hints of bells ride alongside a smooth, colourful pop soundscape, a chorus of voices, intermittent moments of melody and rap – lashings of dynamic and an overall listening experience that shines more brightly with every moment that passes.
During the latter half, things resolve in a powerful fashion – the song quickly finds its groove, its hook, and gifts listeners with a refreshing ear-worm and a timeless anthem that should have no problems being welcomed back each and every year. Really nicely done.
