I love that this one approaches a sometimes awkward topic (the pressures of having sex with someone you’re feeling) in a way that can be played right along with babymaking R&B. I also love that it’s not like that one Lyfe Jennings song. That’s because it’s not exactly preaching abstinence while masquerading as a sultry R&B cut. Nova Ultra’s “Come Over” speaks on sex in a frank way, one that I respect and appreciate. It also speaks on how we sometimes feel pressured to act because of desires, feeling we’re waiting too long, etc.
I also enjoyed this one because it approaches the topic through an LGBTQ+ lens as well. Y’all know that I rock with the LGBTQ+ community, especially individuals in that community who are Black. But Nova’s vocals and content are just limited to a queer perspective or a Black perspective, especially since everyone deals with this sort of thing. However, the coloring (pun completely unintended) of the track with those perspectives help flesh out the story even more. That’s because Black queer men are still underrepresented in contemporary R&B, even with the progression the community’s made over the last ten or so years.
