R.ythem N.athaniel B.lues - Breakthrough

Posted 7 years ago
Capo Decina

What’s in a name?  Sometimes nothing at all, but there are certain monikers that reveal quite a bit about their bearers.  Like “Speed Racer,” or, say, “R.hythem N.athaniel B.lues.”  Referred to our site by Think About That collaborator D. Julien, the aptly-initialed artist is making his solo Booth debut with new single Breakthrough, a cut that sees the singer putting a fresh spin on a familiar R&B theme.  Showcasing his soulful vocal stylings over a Capo Decina-produced beat that builds from Popcorn-style arpeggios to a dense, synth-scorching chorus, the artist describes the moment of clarity in which he made his mind up to leave a woman who treated him like trash.  More of a victory march than a bummed breakup jam, this track is the perfect soundtrack for a dramatic exit.  Simply flip it on, shoot your soon-to-be-ex a knowing look, and walk out the door with your head held high (be sure to play it on their equipment, though, since coming back a minute later to retrieve your iPod would probably ruin the moment).
