Faint of Heart by Millie Blooms: Review
After her break from extensive touring the hip-hop artist and producer from Wales, Millie Blooms returns with a fiery hot single that burns as hot as her passion for hip-hop, Faint of Heart.
Millie’s songwriting and production on Faint of Heart is an explosive display of individuality and originality. The song is a personal reflection, with a modern twist on the spirit of vintage hip-hop and R&B from the 1990s. This is not a tribute or a nostalgia trip; rather, it is Millie rediscovering her confidence and enthusiasm for the music she makes and loves.
Although the song was inspired by artists like Missy Elliot, Qveen Herby, and Dessa, Millie has that authenticity that is evident in her confident and fierce flow. Her singing and the rap verses cut right through the deep bass. The arrangement of the song may strike unconventional to some, but it allowed her to showcase the versatility of her vocal abilities.
Yeah… Passion, pinnacle, lets not fuck around get cynical
When you really want something bad, got to give it all you have
Gonna have to think smart, ain’t for the faint heart
Don’t even try to start, If you ain’t got the heart
Millie Blooms’s latest song, Faint of Heart, is an honest account of her time spent in this industry; the lyrical punches are grounded in reality, but they also serve as a rallying call for anyone who wants to give this field a go. Or you can carry it over to other aspects of life and use it as an inspiration.
