Novel - Grand Finale

Posted about 7 years ago
Tags: Novel
Producer:
Jiggilo
Album:
The Audiobiography (Bonus Track)

Though Novel‘s road to musical success hasn’t been an easy or straightforward one, the many obstacles he’s faced in his life and career have only made him stronger, and his story more compelling.  Nowhere is this clearer than on Audiobiography bonus track Grand Finale, which is as much the prelude to a new chapter in the artist’s life as it is an ending. Looking back on the hardships he’s faced, from his lack of a father figure throughout his poverty-stricken childhood to the industry politics that derailed his debut album’s release, the ATL-based jack-of-all-trades does double-duty, delivering rapped verses (flowing in the Booth for the first time since March feature Hold On) and a sweeping R&B hook over Jiggilo lushly orchestrated blend of choral vocals, strings, and synths (also featuring a sample from the Chi-Lites’ Have You Seen Her).  It’s still unknown when or on which label Novel will be releasing his long-awaited debut—in the meantime, though, fans can enjoy his Suspended Animation mixtape, as well as his newly-premiered video interview with DJ Z.
