Now this is smooth.
Between the Kaytranda-produced grooves and Dana Williams' ghostly vocals, “Egypitan Luvr” finds Rejjie Snow drifting on another astral plane. The Dublin rapper first broke in 2016 for his ability to take the haze of lo-fi hip-hop and give it some teeth. A fine rasp to his delivery, Snow unearths the minutia that makes lost love so painful.
With an additional breezy guest verse from Aminé, the track tackles final moments and last memories with a gilded tone: “Do anything for ya, that's love / Go anywhere for ya, that's love / Might even kill for ya, that's love.”
“Egyptian Luvr” serves as the lead single for Snow’s upcoming debut record, Dear Annie, a 20-track album which drops February 16 on 300 Entertainment, for which the four-track first installment (Dear Annie, Pt. 1 EP) is available now.
