Below, we’ve got the latest track from UK singer/rapper/producer Benjamin A.D., the moody “All on Me.” What I love about this track (and its video) is two-fold. First, I love the 90s aesthetic of it all. Even more importantly than that, though, I love that we get a “fly on the wall” look at a relationship that’s tumultuous and quite toxic. It’s one of those relationships that has one person bearing all the blame and shame of the relationship not being ideal. They’re even struggling to co-exist with each other, much less love and care for each other.
Things aren’t thrown–except cold stares and mini-barbs throughout the lyrics, which find Benjamin singing the role of both people in the relationship. The video is quite intense, without being visceral. You can see and feel the tension between the two individuals. Plus, his vocals are so crisp and smooth. If you’re interested, check it out below and support dope music in all its forms. This song is the first single from A.D.’s W/Love project, which is due out later this year. If the rest of the project is anything like this, I think you’ll have to give it at least one listen before it’s all said and done.
