Bronx-born-and-raised RnB artist, Chris Paris, has been in the habit of pouring soul into his raw confessionals since his debut single release in 2021. In 2022, the artist that draws inspiration from the likes of Frank Ocean, Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole and Drake is back on demure form once again with his latest single, Confide.
By starting with the opening lyric, “I could always tell we were never on the same page”, you instantly relate to Paris and the universal struggle to find people on a similar wavelength. From there on out, you move through smooth RnB melodies and melodic hip hop beats that run under shimmering reverb and drink in Paris’ honeyed-in-spite-of-scorn vocal timbre.
Paris is everything that you’d want from a contemporary RnB artist; he brings a sharp slice of modernity to the genre through his candid lyrics, indie production style and fearlessness when it comes to stamping down his soulful signature.
Confide is now available to stream on all major platforms via this link.
