Harlem singer-producer LoVel returns with a new single, “Somebody,” that blends infectious island vibes with plenty of bedroom glances for our first sampling of his next project, 'Passenger.'
The addictive track is all meticulously layered vocals, sensual songwriting, and wonderfully crafted dancehall charm—the last of which comes via the mind of the French-based production duo, SK Beatz. The bouncy backdrop is a choice setting for LoVel to show off his vocal talents.
In the case of “Somebody,” LoVel distinctively uses his vocals as an instrument, and as a means of adding superb depth. Playing backup vocalist to himself, LoVel creates a lush and engaging listening experience—perfect for a lowkey banger like this.
And after a strong past few years that included 2015’s stellar 'Backseat Memories' EP, LoVel is ready to release something new in the form of 'Passenger.' While details remain slim around the project, a tentative release date is set for early Spring.
