All you 6lack and Frank Ocean fans (and I know you are legions) gather round. The Bay Area R&B recording artist Donovan Lowe has a juicy suggestion for your “Sadboi” playlist.
“Feel The Same” (featuring Young Al) has such a bizarre production, this a leftfield take on today’s R&B, presenting a more dangerous, wilder side of contemporary urban music, just like The Weeknd did in his first trilogy. The production of this thing is a gun; when listening on headphones you are being bombarded by this sarcastic beat from left and right.
This artist has all the potential to blow up any time. This is cutting-edge music, without any unnecessary technical blah-blahs, it is short and to the point. And there’s a wide market to feast upon it. Even though the impression one might get from Donovan’s appearance could be he is leaning towards a more old-school R&B thing, like Anthony Hamilton. However, this is so 2019-2020 music.
“Feel the Same” (featuring Young Al) is included in Donovan Lowe debut EP called “Loving U In Secret”. Stream it the song
