Cry by Wrash Heed: Review
The afro-pop prince Wrash Heed’s second single of 2022 is a soulful RnB infused afrobeat jam.
Taking a look at the idea of love and dating popular people from the perspective of the ladies who date popular artists and entertainers, the song depicts their struggles with their partners being unavailable to them more often than they’d like. The sad part is it’s not just being unavailable but all the things that keep them away and even the unfaithfulness that comes as baggage of being popular. But in the end, it’s not only the ladies that pay the price of the partner being popular. The said partner may too end up paying a hefty price of love and loyalty that they may never find again.
The tune is a brilliant mix of RnB and modern hiphop elements with afrobeat. It starts with a resonating guitar arpeggio gently plucked over Wrash Heed introducing his vocals. As the synths and the syncopated hi-hats and kick drums lay down the rhythm section, Wrash Heed captivates the listeners with his melodious airy vocals with a touch of modern mumble rap-like restrain on it. The spaces between syncopated beats are brilliantly filled with synth melodies. The ethereal vocal overlays during the bridge and the chorus add that “je non se qua” organic fusion factor to the captivating nature of the song. This kind of fusion is not heard every day and feels like a breath of fresh air.
