R&B has experienced a full revival in the last 5 years. After establishing itself as a premier genre, the sound experienced some growing pains in the 2010s, before picking it up toward the latter half of the decade. Artists like SZA, PARTYNEXTDOOR, The Weeknd and more are credited with bringing that feeling back, which sparked a generation of underground vocalists who have taken it to previously unseen heights. One of those artists is Norman Perry, who checks back into our pages with his ambient new single, “2032305.”
Produced by frnchhmwrk, “2032305,” finds Norman crooning about his love for nightlife. Speaking specifically on the Miami scene, Perry’s lyrics about Biscayne baddies popping pills paint a vivid picture of how he sees the city. Utilizing much of the 3-and-a-half minutes to showcase his aforementioned vocal range, the most appealing part of the record appears towards the end. Proving, again, that he’s a man of many talents, he delivers an endearing verse at the end where he raps with the ease and confidence of a 10-year-veteran emcee — confirming the notion that he can do anything on a mic.
Take a listen to the single below and get familiar with Norman Perry.
