BOY MEETS WORLD (EP)
Seamus Fay on 'Somebody' ft. Jachë
I’ve been hip to Atlanta native RobOlu for some time now, and over time, I’ve noticed an incredible amount of growth from the rising talent. Quite clearly, he’s always developing and growing his sound, and today, this hard work comes full circle with my favorite release from Olu to date — “Somebody” featuring Jaché.
Melodic as can be, the unmatched smoothness of this song makes it an easy-to-love crossover track between the hypnotic worlds of rap and R&B. With each successive line, Olu bounces his slick deliveries off of Jaché’s unbelievable vocals, and the result is a tremendous balance between hard-hitting and gentle. Needless to say, in all of its love-minded lyricism, “Somebody” is a brief yet highly entertaining listen, generating a near-perfect representation of two incredibly talented artists and their ability to demonstrate the art of passion in music.
That said, “Somebody” has just the right sound to connect with a broad array of fans, so be sure not only to check out the song and accompanying video below, but also to show it to all of your friends. RobOlu and Jaché make the perfect combination, and the world needs to hear it.
Jake Camarano on Boy Meets World EP
The Atlanta rap scene is due for an imminent shift.
RobOlu is an emerging new talent from Atlanta who has just released his anticipated seven-song album titled, Boy Meets World. The breezy new project is an invigorating new perspective to the immersive Atlanta rap scene. RobOlu is truly special as he can precisely execute wide vocal ranges on multiple tracks such as, “B.M.W.” and “DEADopps” while over exhilarating instrumentals to propel his entire sound. On “Chris Hansen” RobOlu exhibits his versatile ability to flow with different tempos while maintaining his sharpness and emphasis. RobOlu has a great tendency to harmonize and enunciate unlike many of the emerging Atlanta acts hopping on heavily trap-inspired beats with the same atmospheric vibe.
RobOlu has done a brilliant job of showcasing his various abilities on the different tracks considering he closes the album off with R&B infused tracks, “Somebody” who features Jache, and “Outro” which features Shai Nowell. RobOlu should be able to turn more heads in the near future as he has made a profound mark on the intriguing Atlanta scene in order to stand out in his own musical lane.
