With melodies made for melting into, sensuous crooning and strikingly contemporary lyricism, it’s safe to say that John MF Ward has made an ever-lasting impression on the airwaves with their single Make It Right.
There may be one or two elements of old school Soul. But the up and coming artist was able to lay his soul on the line while painting a stark portrait of 21st-century dating without over-romanticising it.
To add to the dynamism of Make It Right, John MF Ward borrowed the magnetic vocal prowess from Rap artist Exzac Change who lay down cutting bars over his smooth amorous harmonics. The collaborative chemistry is as potent as it comes with Make It Right.
We certainly don’t come across tracks as captivating as Make it Right every day. Or as authentic. We’d strongly suggest putting John MF Ward on your radar.
