Beginning with a jazzy rhythm and smooth, soulful rapping over electronic beats and sparkling, bubbly, and watery synth waves, Hizway presents us with a translucent and tranquil track, “Back 2 Us.” It’s a simple yet extraordinary track that contradicts the usual glossy and materialist culture that hip-hop music showcases with the lyrics. But Hizway pays tribute to marriages and committed relationships, singing that is all they need while showering the wife with the utmost honor and respect. It’s a refreshing look at the music industry, and Hizway’s talents give him room to win.
“Back 2 Us” combines hip-hop with jazz and R&B, and he has manufactured his original sound with inspirations like Lecrea, Andy Mineo, Flame, Toby Mac, and KB behind his jams. His music requires little instrumentalization due to Hizway’s flawless rapping and clear vocals. With a consistent tempo, listeners can relax as they listen and vibe to the atmospheric soundscape of “Back 2 Us.”
Behind the lyrics and the chill hip-hop ambiance of “Back 2 Us,” Hizway sings of an account of getting back together with his former lover and doing everything possible to make it last. Hizway’s spiritual peek into relationships is what makes the song so pure, yet because it is hip-hop, we can groove to it. Released on a very fitting occasion right in the heart of February, on the 14th, “Back 2 Us” is the perfect lover’s jam.
The soul and significance he has portrayed in “Back 2 Us” are timeless, and so we find ourselves getting back to it and implore you to do the same.
