Stanza - Love & Appreciation
With the arrival of summer, a lot of the new music that’s been released lately has featured trunk banging beats paired with hot fiery punch lines to go with the scorching weather. So wouldn’t it be nice to hear a smooth, refreshing song that comes in like a cool breeze? Well, Stanza, with the help of legendary beatsmith 9th Wonder, hopes to provide exactly that refreshing feeling during this hot, chaotic summer with new leak Love & Appreciation. The production, of course, comes from 9th Wonder, and samples Ben. E King’s Let Me Live In Your Life, providing a smooth, soulful head-bobbin flow that goes great with the song’s romantic theme. (Some may recognize the beat off of Murs’ album Murray’s Revenge). For his part, Stanza knows that the warmer months mean new love, and new opportunities to slick talk and spit game to some lovely hunnies. If you think you’ve found your first official summertime jam, you can grab this feel good record on Stanza’s Searching for Bobby Fischer mixtape, set to drop on June 15.
