“People saying me and you like the finest cheerleader going wit’ the dude that got picked last for the team.”
If we let Lil Duval tell it, the word “basic” has a negative connotation. Not true, especially when an artist like Tay sticks to the script – opting for effective crooning of honest words – and partner Nicolay uses sparse arrangements that allow the continually evolving rapper turnt singer room to flourish. “Maybe She’ll Dream Of Me” isn’t a complicated tune at all, the premise of longing for the one you love to reciprocate the affections equally as hard isn’t far-fetched. The majority of us don’t live whirlwind love affairs, jetsetting the world and eating candlelight dinners with aspiring models. We encounter that special someone in the most mundane of places, usually in spots where they become the brightest, undeniable ray of light. From then on, we set our sights on winning their heart, hoping to have our advances welcomed. See, it’s straightforward simplicity and the basics are why this duo keeps winning when it comes to crafting music to match the occasion.
The group’s third studio album, Authenticity, is in stores and can be found wherever good music is sold.
