Music is such a beautiful expression of emotions, feelings and art. It’s a breath of fresh air when everything is coordinated from sound, voice and visuals. This new project is a combination of elements that just work. MJ Sings and Murphy Cubic have collaborated and given, no blessed, us with a track titled Feels, an afro-pop/soul track written by MJ Sings and produced by Murphy Cubic.
This is an undeniable bomb combination because the music they produced here is top-notch. MJ Sings has such a beautiful voice, I just can not get over it. I had goosebumps when I first listed to the track. Vernacular music does something to me. It’s authentic and relatable. Murphy Cubic makes the best instrumentals, I’m talking international level. It’s giving Sun-El-Musician ft. Simmy energy but better because it has that extra touch of home. The talent is in abundance here.
Feels does just as the name suggests, puts you in your feels, the good kind. It does something to your soul that is indescribable. It has a mellow sound both artists outdid themselves. The visualiser is equally chill and warm. It features MJ Sings doing his thing. It’s natural and charming, you can feel MJ’s aura through the camera. As a visualiser it did what needed to be done. The colours, the editing, all on point. Can I mention how the colours are very autumn? Those greens and yellows from the flowers to his jacket were a nice touch. We all know autumn is the season of shedding and a transition into a new season. Autumn is between summer and winter. It depicts how the relationship has gone from hot to cold. The autumn theme is appropriate for the song because it matches the overall theme of the track. Being in the ruins illustrates the state of his feels. Shout-out to the videographer because none of this happened by accident. A lot of thought and intention went into this seemingly “simple” visualiser. It epitomises that less really is more. It’s impeccable.
I don’t know if you can tell but I really love everything about this project. I really cannot wait for more from this duo. If you’ve never heard of MJ Sings please please check out his track below. And many more of MJ Sings’ songs.
