Class Vee’s “IDK Why” is a soulful jam, one that questions why she’s dating. It also goes on to question how one goes about dating in the 2020s. Truth be told, it’s kind of a mess to date in 2021–especially because of the bevy of apps that come with the territory. That said, Vee’s got a vintage sound, as “IDK Why” reminds me of a ’90s R&B song–down to the phrasing of some lyrics. However, questioning the dating pool is an evergreen issue. It’s a relatable song for anyone, whether you’re getting back in the dating game or you’ve been in it for a while with varying degrees of success. Heck, even if you found your person, I’m sure you can relate to the insanity that is dating.
Vee’s vocals are beautiful over the boombap-esque R&B beat and have a crispness to them that feels brand new, although the vibe is a bit more nostalgic. In the age of Tinder, Hinge, Bumble and so on, dating has become easier–but still somewhat harder. Class Vee seemingly captures the difficulties of dating virtually and physically these days in this one. Check out “IDK Why” below and remember to support dope music in all its forms.
