Afro-Beat and Dancehall are what colour up London artist Br3nz’s latest single: ‘1n1’.
Catchy lines are contoured by commercial music work that revisits Afro-Beat in a contemporary twist, engaging in rhythmic themes proper of Afro-Caribbean music. Less than a minute in and I was already humming the melody, which makes me think that Br3nz has a good pulse on where today’s music will lead.
He sings “Let me go 1 on 1 with you” with a uniquely sensual approach, standing as an invitation to a physical and spiritual union that moves beyond “materialism” through empathy and mutual desire.
It’s very easy to get drawn by ‘1n1’, one too many times.
Open Spotify and hit play on ‘1n1’ now.
