I can't even begin to describe the size of the smile that spread across my face when I saw there was a new one from one of my favorite artists to date, Louis Futon. Everything the Philly-native touches turns to pure gold. Take his latest work, a cover of J. Cole's original, “Kevin’s Heart,” for example. There’s really no other way to characterize the rework than as a certified JAM.
Collaborating with the gifted minds of Bellah, BXRBER and Armani White, LF takes the popular R&B single and spins it into his own funk-driven interpretation, roping you in immediately with an infectious beat that is signature to his brand. The rhythm is complimented with a jazzy, emphasized take on the melody of which is shaped through an amalgamation of crisp, futuristic synths. J. Cole's verses also receive a makeover through the honeyed, harmonizing vocals of Bellah and BXRBER, while Armani White packs in the heat with his very own lyrical lines. Just hit play and you’ll realize within seconds that one listen will not be enough to satiate your ears.
