I still vividly remember the first time I discovered Bruises by Lewis Capaldi. I became an instant fan. Every song he released from that EP then stuck on me, especially Fade and Mercy. With how Spotify, Youtube and Facebook helps push new artists on the wave plus of course the artist and his team’s hard work, it wasn’t surprising that he would end up being nominated for the BBC Sound of 2018 List. On the other hand, Jessie Reyez went up my radar when she was featured on Calvin Harris’s track Hard to Love.
The pair brought a new kind of mix especially with these new generation of sound. Capaldi’s dark voice will haunt you from the very first word that he sings then Jessie Reyez’s voice who seemed like only fit for R&B pop came out so powerful but mellow at the same time. When they sing the chorus together,it’s just surreal!
