Free Download | Having Fun - Marc E. Bassy
Marc is still on his groovy acoustic kick, and although I can’t speak for everyone, I love it. The R&B singer has been getting mixed feedback about his transition; many people who know him for his work with 2AM Club, or with rappers like G-Eazy and Skizzy Mars are unsatisfied with the switch up. I think it’s important to keep an open mind when listening to new music, and versatility should never be barraged or shunned.
‘Having Fun’ has accrued just shy of 1,000,000 plays since it’s release two weeks ago, which is by far the fastest that any of his original songs has taken off. The beat starts off with an acoustic guitar chord progression layered underneath some female vocal samples, which leads into a slowly building a drum line as Marc sings his first verse. The watered down claps and cymbals keep the instrumental splashy until about 2:13, where the beat tightens up and Marc spits a few bars for his hip-hop fans.
This song is about the highs that fade away, the numbness that comes with success, and addressing the elephant in the room as to whether or not everyone’s actually still having fun, or just partying out of habit. It’s a deep song, and certainly one that you can empathize with. Show Marc some love on Soundcloud, Twitter, and Instagram if you like what you hear.
