Jon Hope ft. Nandi - Above It All

Posted about 7 years ago
Tags: Jon Hope
Producer:
Taktix
Album:
Work in Progress

Screaming fans, flashing cameras, and big money are nice, but no amount of glitz or glamor can distract Jon Hope from his first love, the music—as the Providence, RI native puts it on the lead single off his forthcoming Work In Progress, he’s simply Above It All.  Hope’s single-minded pursuit of musical greatness has clearly paid off, particularly on the lyrical tip.  Over a pensive blend of strings and piano by beatsmith Taktix (who also produced and sang the hook on Hope’s Better) the artist announces his intention to “kill fear and decapitate hate,” delivering ambitious verses jam-packed with poetic imagery and subtle wordplay.  Topped off with a soulful hook by R&B singer Nandi, this track is sure to raise anticipation for Jon Hope’s latest opus—Work in Progress has yet to receive a solid release date, but fans can keep it locked to the Booth for all the latest news and tunes.
