Detroit based producer Apollo Brown and Atlanta based rapper Boog Brown are at it again. The pairâ€™s first collaborations resulted in the enchanting mixtape The Grind Season Vol. 1, a tantalizing taste of what was soon to come.
The sensual â€œJust Be,â€ an intimate whisper that floats over Apollo Brownâ€™s shimmering samples and passionate groove, inspiring the intense pleasures of living in the present and savoring every moment. Boog expressed that desire, advising us to â€œLive in the moment. In all things, intimacy, joy, pain, hurt, loss, gain, triumph. All of that — be in it. Feel it, because itâ€™s the fabric of life. Blink and it’s gone.â€ Powerful and vibrant lyrics such as â€œEnraptured in the scent/ This is bliss at length/ From start to the finish/ Euphoric/ Absorbed in the ebullience/ Elegant every sense awakenedâ€ meld with Apolloâ€™s sampled soft horns, sweeping strings, and chimes, echoing his thought that “‘Just Be’ is one of those songs that exude passion and feeling. We don’t have a lot of true feeling in the music now days. Emcees and producers shouldn’t be afraid to express themselves exactly how they please.â€
Boog Brown and Apollo Brownâ€™s album Brown Study will be available September 28th via Mello Music Group.
