Featuring Mariah Mariah and WesWill, “Closer” is a track that features on Cherry’s ULTRAVIOLET project, which released recently. I feel the vibe and the concept. That’s because it’s about just wanting to be closer to the one you love. The sound of the whole thing reminds me of a mix between KRIT on DRDD and Anderson.Paak, even down to the rap components of the song and the utilization of the talkbox at the end of the cut.
The parent album seeks to discuss attempting to find that balance between love and career. That’s something most creatives know all too well. I know I’ve definitely had to make some sacrifices in my creative career for love and vice versa. However, when you do find that balance, you’ll do almost anything to keep it–and keep love and music/writing/producing working together instead of against each other. If you’re intrigued by the blend of sounds this one has, I recommend checking it and ULTRAVIOLET out and supporting dope music in all its forms.
