Ratedchris brings melody, rhythm and style to the modern rap and alternative pop scene, with the catchy and tuneful trap anthem Paris.
Taking its time to introduce things, Paris quickly showcases an aptly well-travelled musicality – exotic piano layers intertwining for an emotive overtone. Soon enough we’re introduced to that trap beat and a faultlessly rhythmic progression from rapper Ratedchris.
The delivery is fairly mellow to begin with, laying bare a likable progression that’s memorable and naturally suits the intimacy and warmth of the music.
This quality continues later on, with references to personal issues and attributes alike – mentions of love and fear and problems with trust. This follows a slightly more high-octane outpouring, within which Ratedchris employs impressive versatility on the mic.
Ultimately we resolve to this idea of running away, seemingly towards brighter tomorrows; to this melodic and heartfelt thread – overcoming surface-level anecdotes with a clear sense of self-empowerment and belief in better.
It’s an anthem for inspiring and motivating listeners, at the same time as connecting with them on a deeply human level. Really nicely done, original yet relevant. I look forward to hearing more.
