It’s a melodic beats with dreamy laid-back R&B textures. He uses his smooth, soulful vocals to talk about how men are encouraged to believe that expressing their emotions is a sign of weakness.

I spent 18 years in Africa due to my father’s job, and this experience has made me want to become a journalist. Writing has always been one of my hobbies, as well as art. I’m passionate about 60’s film, art house film, and also by modern art.
