A few facts about Gene Noble: first, Gene looked to music to help him after his father, as a soldier, died saving someone’s life when Gene was just four. It was also D’Angelo‘s Voodoo Tour that inspired him to become an artist. Those two facts don’t have anything to do with his latest song feature, but I just wanted you to be Aware that he is much more than your typical R&B singer. Not that you wouldn’t have been able to discover that by pressing play. Setting the mood on this unique R&B tune, Lion’s Share cooks up a flanged, synth-driven beat that has a very funky, unique vibe. Most R&B singers would struggle with the quirky production, but it fits Noble perfectly. His feathery, fluttering vocals glide atop the beat and lend some smoothness to the coarse, textured track. Just so you are Aware, The DJBooth will have an exclusive stream of the artist’s new album, Rebirth of Gene, next Monday, one day before the album officially drops on March 4.
