Ready and waiting to fit well into the contemporary hip hop and melodic rap scene, Zainhy’s Ballin’ accesses the production style of the moment and weaves in a simple yet satisfying hook that’s quickly addictive.
Featuring a laid-back beat and recognisable bass-line, Ballin’ introduces a breathy vocal from Zainhy, utilizing auto-tune as per the modern sound but not to the point of losing sight of those unique qualities and that tone for clear identity.
Making its way through a humble two-minute-fifty, Ballin’ makes use of a selection of relevant references, standing tall for the most part on its late-night, ambient groove, and the subtle strength of character present in the voice.
Well produced, not overly flashy but straight to the point and consistently in tune with its intended mood. An easy contender.
