Up and coming R&B Hip Hop artist Sosa V created his latest soberingly striking latest single “Winnin” through a mix of atmospheric aural energy and haunting lyricism. Instead of creating a track which appeals to your empathy and compels you to slip into a state of melancholy, Winnin goes down a much darker route. Sosa V gives faint glimpses of his grief, allowing your imagination to do the rest of the work.
The multi-layer beats carry plenty of intricacy, but ultimately, they stand to serve the lyrical narrative of Winnin and amplify that gnawing feeling of disparity knowing that plenty of people are living the lives Sosa V is versing about in Winnin. To feel the full effect of Winnin, you will need to pair the track with the visuals in the video which perfectly capture the anxiety, grief, and loss which is a result of gang violence and police violence.
