Lawrence D’s Smooth Cruising RnB track “Wanna Be” out now

Rnb or Rhythm and Blues has always been a staple in the music industry. It’s an expression of love and passion, encapsulated in sexy tunes that could make you melt in an instant. An ice cream exposed in the warmth of the sun; it brings back certain memories as well as rose laced fantasies laying in dormancy in the deepest recesses of the mind. From acts such as Jamie Fox, Luther Vandross, Tank, Charlie Wilson and so much more, it’s got that tight grip on us. Captivating and leaving us breathless every single time. Whew! 

Constantly evolving, the Rnb scene is seemingly a living organism that’s been steadily growing since the 1940s. With new artists coming along at a constant basis, these newbies so to speak are taking the genre to new heights. Providing new listening experiences to millions of fans worldwide. They’re what most arcade fighting games would say “here comes a new challenger!”. Challenging the norms and standards established years ago. 

Speaking of new artists, a new one enters the ring in the form of Nashville,TN based singer Lawrence D. Sure to give you palpitations like nobody’s business, he came out with smooth tunes like “CKLY” and “This Feeling”. Now though, he’s got a new baby called “Wanna be” feat. 219:AM set to be released today. Spoilers though, this one’s a bop that’ll get you tapping the replay button nonstop. 

A song about longing for the arms of another, Lawrence D masterfully gives us a snapshot of how it exactly feels to fall intensely. Skipping the head over heels part, and just taking it to hyperdrive it depicts a heightened version of L-O-V-E.“Far away that I can’t see. Front seat no nose bleed. Come through with the real. On the wheel keep a warm seat. 50/50 chance thousand miles in the ghost speeding”. 

As much as it is a song about fatal attraction, it also speaks of that person being worth it. No matter how much mishaps may arise, at the end of the day they’re someone you need in your life. They’ve become a part of you, so much so that their absence makes you grow crazy. “I know what you about. Your worth it I see it now. Your love is such a long way down. Now that I should’ve found a way. Hundred in the four speed. Now I’m running late.”.

Looking at the song as a whole, Lawrence D’s new offering is cruise worthy. The beat, and its picturesque lyrics frequently referencing automobiles such as “Hundred in the four speed”. It provides that adrenaline rush we all need from time to time. To top it all off, it’s got that the old school Rnb vibe that we all grew up on. Sure, it’s new track but it’s got that old world feeling straight back from the 80s and 90s.
