Missouri rapper, Evi da Prince shows his vulnerable side on his latest release, “Next Time.” The single features the melodic vocals of Julian Grae and eloquent bars from Evi. Prince has garnered a significant following on social media with the release of his most recent project, All or Nothing, showing that from writing structured bars to engineering beats, he is a well-rounded emerging artist.
“Next Time” is a reflective ode to the trials and tribulations of a romantic relationship. The rapper’s verses toggle between the complicated highs and tension filled lows that come with an intimate connection. The track describes a refreshing dose of reality. It’s a love song that divulges the complex and less than glamorous aspects of real-life relationships. He raps, “I put my all into you and if that ain’t enough then I’m packin’ shit up with the quickness.” The beat has a mellow R&B undertone that blends perfectly with the symphonic chorus. The modern soul sound is reminiscent of Jeremih or Tory Lanez, but Evi’s subtle chopper-style rapping adds a unique flair to the track.
Evi da Prince continues to tease new music on his social media accounts and listeners can anticipate more visuals to accompany his releases. The artist’s YouTube channel boasts high quality music videos and strong support in the comment section for his conceptual approach to his songs. His strong verses and versatile style make him a must listen for lyrical rap fans and hip-hop aficionados alike.
