When he's not quietly releasing his Dream Lobby series of instrumental albums or covering one of Tony! Toni! Toné!'s best songs about regional weather, Devin Morrison is still usually hard at work in the studio. It's something that has consistently worked in his and our favor as the singer-songwriter continuously puts out a stream of quality music with a throwback feel. That streak continues with the release of his latest single "P.B.J."
"P.B.J." is another winner that Devin uses to serve as an ode to Black women everywhere (the title's acronym stands for "pretty brown jawn"). For the song's sound bed, he combines his forces with rising 17-year-old producer CUBE to create a smooth R&B groove based around warm guitar licks and slapping drums.
"So tell me what you want / Pretty brown jawn / What do you want in a man? / Baby, do I stand a chance?" he harmonizes along with the melody on the song's chorus. "So tell me what you want / Pretty brown jawn / What do you want in a man / Baby, I deserve a chance."
Elsewhere on the track, he makes the track all about the lady on his mind and her perfect complexion while also stating his case as to why he should be her guy. It's a sincere and fun come-on that's sure to catch the attention of brown-skinned ladies the world over. It also has one of the slickest bridges we've heard in a long, long time.
If you happen to be a P.B.J. or you're trying to woo one, we recommend adding this one to your playlists as soon as you can. Take a listen below when you press play.
