Bobby Royale’s sobering new Hip Hop music video to “Remember” dropped on October 17th. And it’s safe to say I won’t have been the only one stung by the deeply evocative sentiment which spills from the smooth soundscape.
Remember is a single which makes you think past the time the world felt so divisive, terrifying, and cold. Bobby Royale has attacked societal disparity in a far gentler way than N.W.A. did back in the 80s. But there’s still plenty of resonance found within the melancholically soulful feat of Alt Hip Hop.
There’s a myriad of different genres weaved into Remember, and each of them is as tonally rich and mellifluous as the last. With vocals switching between R&B harmonies to mid-tempo rap bars, and with elements of Blues and Jazz infused in the mix, Hip Hop doesn’t come much more sublime than this.
You can check out Remember for yourselves by heading over to YouTube now.
