Royce Lovett, a former contestant on season 17 of NBC’s The Voice, is back with a smooth cut entitled “Better” where he sings the praises of Black women. The talented singer-songwriter co-wrote the song, which also features rapper Canon, who lends his lyrical skills to the record. 

When asked about his motivation for the song, Royce explained via press release, “Malcolm X reminds us that ‘the Black woman is the most forgotten person in America.’ Through this song, I wanted to let women know, I’m here to support you, protect you and even get out of your way, so you can step into your leadership and passion.”

Royce is anxious to let Black women know they are the prototype on “Better.” He proudly sings on the first verse, “I ain’t never met nobody quite like you / That done been through them things that you been through / Yet you shine like the sun know you best.” 

He pours into Black women over the track’s uptempo beat, driven by a steady bassline, drums, keys and Rhodes. Royce’s gospel and hip-hop roots are evident as his soulful voice comes through on lead and background vocals. He delivers non-stop praise and encouragement, and Canon keeps that same energy for his verse.

Royce Lovett shows big love to Black women and injects some much-needed positivity into the universe with “Better.” We hope this trend continues with his future releases. Give “Better” a listen below and stick around to watch Royce and his band perform the track live in the studio.
