As far as I’m concerned, there will never be enough Hip Hop Pop crossover tracks on the radio waves. Which is why I was stoked to hear Willborch’s latest single which was released June 8th, 2018.
What I’ve always admired most about Hip Hop tracks is the ingenuity which goes into the lyricism, the pure flow and the rhythm contained within the hype of the fluid bars. Which is exactly what you get with Willborch’s standout single Upgrade. A lot of people still find that as a genre Hip Hop is inaccessible but Willborch may just be the artist to bridge that gap and allow audiences with a penchant for Pop to delve in the soundscapes. How he managed to create a beat so haunting yet upbeat and polished I will never understand. The sentiment behind Upgrade may be a little morose, but it’s hard not to get caught up in the hype of this lyrically astounding single.
