“Boy Toy” is the sixth magnetically hook-filled single to be released from breaking R&B artist Sarah Khatami. In the short time since her inception, she’s become renowned for her ability to inject vibrant new energy into the R&B genre.
While there may be some reminiscences of 90s R&B in her sound, the empowering vibes in her radio-ready tracks such as Boy Toy have well and truly earned their spot on contemporary airwaves.
With a bassline which will remind you of Arctic Monkeys iconic hit Do I Wanna Know?, Sarah Khatami’s dynamically flawless vocals, and the unfaltering conviction in the lyrics, Boy Toy is a playlist worthy hit. Bringing in Myia Thornton for a Rap verse ensured there was plenty of diversity in the track which continued to make seamless evolutions right from the prelude to the outro.
