Introducing a redirection from artist and songwriter Jonathon Brannon, Radio Fly showcases a new manner of storytelling and sound-design, and highlights a whole other side to the creative corner of Brannon’s work with a well-crafted ambiance and classic hip hop flow on the front line.
I’m The Best is a surprisingly melodic, partly organic and partly trap-kissed modern rap track with equal parts emotion and confidence. Rather than focusing on the boldness and swagger of the title, the track instead weaves a humble soundscape of guitar, bass and rhythm around listeners, setting the mood before connecting with these cleanly mixed rap verses from rising artist R Reed; which inject that essential self-belief for a contrasting yet effective resulting single.
Somewhat nostalgic in clarity and concept, I’m The Best leads with a musically likable, refreshingly creative backbone, and keeps things anthem-like and accessible in the pop/RnB lanes – whilst offering the energy and rhythm of hip hop for a truly broad and welcoming audience reach.
Poetic and impressive, quirky yet focused and musically immersive in a dreamy, memorable way. It will be interesting to hear where else the music takes Radio Fly.
