In case you can't tell, we're kinda deep in our standom when it comes to DUCKWRTH. The rising star — who is also a newly independent artist — constantly and consistently impresses with his output and his ability to flip from rapping to singing quite nimbly. He earned his place on our playlists with the collection of bops that was SuperGood and then kept that vibe going on his recent single "Birthday Suit." Now he's back to seduce us with the seductive new jam "make u go."
Ardent fans will remember that he previewed "make u go" during his appearance on NPR Music's Tiny Desk Meets SXSW earlier this year and in a brief snippet during his "Kiss U Right Now" video. The fully realized studio version, however, gives the song a whole new light. For one, the studio version allows him to fully flesh out its old-school feel thanks to added instrumentation and vocal layering that show off the song's quiet storm roots. But don't worry, he doesn't just dwell on the nostalgia of it all, infusing the lyrics with modern sensibilities as he encourages his lady to lay her burdens down in his bed for the night. His MC skills inform his clever wordplay as he sings, allowing him to get romantic on one hand and persuade her to keep their freaky sneaky on the low on the other without breaking the song's sensual spell.
If you're feeling "make u go" — and let's be honest, you are — you'll be happy to know that it will be featured on DUCKWRTH's upcoming EP SuperGood 8, which is set to arrive in on September 3rd. Allow DUCKWRTH to make you feel something good when you press play and pick up the sexy new single from your digital retailer of choice.
