Frannie B released her latest pensively styled Trap Pop single Cruel on August 5th, 2018. The resonance won’t fail to hit you as you listen to the melodically-paced single unfold. Whilst it is one thing to create hard-hitting lyrics, it is quite another to write lyrics which will personally tear through you. How Frannie B managed to create such a hauntingly melancholic, yet viscerally bewitching beat will forever remain a mystery.
The beat behind the lyrically driven track is even more captivating, the Trap melodies progress without a hint of predictability under the sweet resonance of the lush synths which remain stripped back and minimalistic to provide Frannie B her introspective lyrics. Whilst many young Pop artists seem compelled to portray fragility with their vocal style, don’t expect to hear anything but vocal strength in Cruel. Alongside her stunning vocal talent, Frannie B is also a deftly able instrumentalist, the ability to create a phantasmically tentative piano melody. She just gets better doesn’t she?
