There’s quite a lot of star energy on one tune after which there’s this. 4-time Grammy-winning R&B maestro PJ Morton has a brand new album popping out on April twenty ninth, entitled Watch The Solar and he’s simply enlisted two unquestionable legends for his newest single. On “Be Like Water,” each Nas and Stevie Surprise join with Morton on a tune that’s about going with the stream of life’s curveballs and stay adaptable.
It’s a pleasure to listen to Morton and Surprise harmonizing as they sing, “Be like water, let it stream. Be like water, simply let go,” over cinematic strings. Then Nas drops in for a verse on a tune that shifts from R&B to hip-hop with orchestral instrumentation and, sure, Surprise on the harmonica.
“‘Be Like Water’ was positively a phrase I had heard earlier than,” Morton stated in a press release. “Bruce Lee made it well-known after all, however it didn’t totally join with me till we have been all shut down and I needed to pivot in my life like all of us needed to. After I completed writing it I might solely hear Nas’ voice on it. For him to truly get on it blew my thoughts. Then when Stevie Surprise agreed to be on it and to study that Nas had all the time wished to work with Stevie, it was past my wildest desires!”
Take heed to “Be Like Water” above.
PJ Morton’s Watch The Solar is out 4/29 through Morton Data.
