Perspective has a lush beat that calls back to the funk of the 1970s and the sound laid down by the Fugees and Corinne Bailey Rae back in the 1990s. The charismatic vocals of Sy Smith imbues this effort with all the trappings of R&B and rap. We particularly love the bass lines and the sensual vocals contributed by B. Slade during Smith’s latest. The continually shifting and changing sound of Perspective keeps the song’s replay value high. A move over to a more gritty, streetwise sound during the 2:40 mark is precisely the soudn needed to keep fans firmly planted on the edges of their seat until the cut leads out.
We last wrote about Sy Smith in 2009.
