Up and coming Trap Soul artist Jay Threatt teamed up with Smoov to create his latest sensually immersive drop “Like Money”. The smooth rhythm of the track sits right on the contemporary curve with the hype of the beat sitting in the kicks of the 808 and the sensual vibe brought by the R&B melodies. Jay Threatt was able to vocally set himself apart from your average R&B artist through his lack of use for autotune, instead his magnetic vocal command seamlessly fed into the instrumentals of Like Money. There’s plenty of hyped energy to sink your teeth into to Like Money when it comes to the beat, but it’s easy to feel that the lyrics and the sentiment behind the track didn’t quite do Like Money justice. While there are enough sultry grooves in the track, the comparison of women to money doesn’t seem overly evocative.
