7th Obi has established a lane all for himself in Ireland and he continues to impress on his new single "Red Eye". This release comes on the heels of a series of incredible singles such as "burner", "For Free" and "Holly Road". The prolific songwriter looks to continue his hot streak into 2020 and does not disappoint on this one.
"Redeye" showcases exactly what has come to be expected from 7th Obi. The incredible melodics that are underlined by a creative use of auto-tune and high pitched ad libs are expertly crafted. The lyricism is still at the forefront with this song. 7th Obi has only grown as a songwriter and this track is further proof of that fact. His ability to paint pictures with words is undeniable. The imagery on this track is even more potent than some of his other releases; his growth rate is exceptional.
The production see's a laid back trap beat with sputtering hi-hat patterns with deep, heavy 808's and sharp lead melodies. The beat is exactly what 7th Obi fits perfectly over. However, I have no doubt that Obi's sheer talent would shine through on any type of production. This production is just particularly designed for him to paint the images that he so brilliantly does.
This year is a big one for 7th Obi. With a lot of chatter around his name currently and without a body of work released since the incredible Taxi Club in 2018, it is expected that we will see a lot more of him this year. I am extremely intrigued to see where this frontrunner of the revolution in RnB & Hip-Hop is going to take us.
