Download Sidelines - Blackbear & 4e

Blackbear’s been raising the bar for R&B singers with every new release, especially with his cover of Dej Loaf’s Try Me last month. This time he appropriated a 4e produced beat, delivering perfectly crafted vocals across the heavy bass and hard-hitting drums. His drifting voice lures you into the dark melody, pleading for his lover to ease his pain and empathizing with everyone who’s “waiting on the sidelines”. Not my favorite track from him so far, the bleak/grim lyrics sway the vibe of the track, and the abrupt changes in pace don’t flow as smoothly as some of his other material. Still, new blackbear is always worth a listen, don’t forget to follow him on twitter.
