“Let Em Say” by “BContheTrack” showcases a talented vocalist and rapper with a fairly unique sound. The track itself takes a little bit from the hip hop and rap sound, the mellow vibe, a slight vintage, and fuses it with an incredibly energetic rap performance. BContheTrack, Bill C grew up in South Central Los Angeles. This is why his beats combine street noises with studio sounds. BC has almost twenty years of music experience ranging from Old School, R&B, Gospel, Trap, and Hip Hop.
The laid back and energetic sound of the musical backdrop contrasts notably with the high energy of the rap vocal. Similarly, the chorus, or hook section, beautifully and stylishly sung, also has a very easy going and chilled out nature to it. The whole track throws out a few different ideas and the energy switches several times during just a few minutes. The structure of the piece as well is particularly unusual.
The music has a cinematic sort of strength to it. Although gentle in nature, it’s a soundscape that washes over you like white water – the effect is immense. The sound is complex, yet peaceful; intricate, yet easily accessible. The creativity is present in every moment – in the instrumentation, the mix, the production, the lyrics, the structure, and indeed the vocal performance. The emotion in the artist’s voice is clear and consistent and compelling, whether it’s the soft, almost whispered moments, or the bigger, soulful and striking ones.
Beaux the featured artist on this track has a blissful sound to his voice that suits the words and the mood. The song sounds simplistic at first, though there’s much to appreciate and experience within just a few short minutes of listening. The track has an emotional honesty to it in both the lyrics and the performance, and this honesty is presented in a somewhat heart wrenching manner; always holding you captive with superb energy and power.
The character or personality that is so consistently evident in the vocal performance is hugely appealing. There’s an originality to the sound, the tone, the inflections and the general expression and presentation of words, and this has great value. When you do listen intently there’s a fair amount of clever wordplay and a very confident and varied display of lyricism. Plus, the vocal melody, the hook, really gets inside your mind, and it’s a pleasure to get caught up on.
