Chicago's latest rising talent Saba has kept us captivated throughout the year thanks to a gang of memorable features on many of his contemporaries' critically acclaimed projects, including Chance The Rapper's Coloring Book and No Name's Telefone. The 22-year old artist has been relatively quiet with his own solo output since the release of his debut ComfortZone tape back in 2014, but has hinted at a new project entitled BucketList with a few random singles throughout the year.
His latest release is a sentimental alt-R&B cut entitled "Symmetry"(produced by Ken Ross), that showcases his wide range as an artist capable of transitioning from rap to crooning with ease. It is an impassioned ode to the fairer sex that has him pleading for patience and understanding:
“‘Symmetry’ is about finding your other half, or better half, even,” said Saba. “They say the most beautiful people have symmetrical features, and that that’s what beauty is. I tried to take that concept and expand on it to say that symmetry in life is when everything lines up, things just start to make sense.” -via Nylon Magazine
