Christopher Watson’s “Truth Is” is a powerful effort that tells a story of African-Americans historically and in the current era. With a narrative of uplift, Watson is able to showcase how much of a positive force an individual can be. The backing instrumentation on Truth Is is laid-back but deceptively deep. The different samples and deliberate percussive sample acts as the perfect palette upon which Watson can paint his vibrant picture. The song’s easily able to crossover between modern R&B, rap, and even college radio vibes; this ability to speak to the widest possible grouping of fans ensures that Truth Is stays fresh for the longest time.
