Alina Baraz is coming into her own on the R&B scene. One of her older hits Fantasy has integrated her into popular culture but 6 years later, is her latest single measuring up? Did Miss Baraz give us More Than Enough?
The sound of this single lines up with everything else Alina has released. She is consistent, I’ll give her that. She gives us an R&B sound where the rhythm and blues elements are very present; her songs don’t lack any presence of rhythm and the tone of the song is melancholy. Whether this matches up with the lyricism or not, she is consistently and inexplicably R&B, just not in your typical package and this song is no exception. The sound on this single earns an 8/10 on the Intersect rating scale.
Baraz has a voice like silk, yet there’s a little rasp to it as well. It’s like a relaxing desire that is not only present in the timber of her voice but her lyricism as well. Her voice aligns with the music in the background, but it doesn’t even necessarily feel lie it’s In the background— Baraz almost blends with the music; she is the music. Her singing on this track earns a 9/10 on Intersects rating scale.
THE ART BEHIND THE SINGLE
Like most songs of the genre, this one is about love. This single expresses adoration and appreciation for a “stay down” lover. Her voice is seductive, and her message is vulnerable yet relatable. Everyone has experienced or at least hopes to experience, a love that changes them—a love that is more than enough. This type of love requires transparency, patience, and intimacy which are all present in the song. The art behind this single earns a 9/10 on intersects rating scale.
