Not every song dedicated to love needs to be a cliché. GoldLink shuns the typical love ballad for ‘Fall In Love’, an upbeat anthem that invites smiles not tears. With fluttering wind additions fit for a Ron Burgundy solo and a groove-led bassline, the song features light-hearted throwback stylings, until the dance beat kicks in and the hip hop takes hold.
“To love and keep quiet was the greatest punishment I brought on myself.” – GoldLink
Having previously been described as an “electronic hip-hop” artist, the D.C. vocalist’s latest track slots perfectly under this label, no doubt helped by the king of genre-crossing, Kaytranada. The production maestro teamed with BadBadNotGood for the track, the two coming together to provide a chunky, pulsating backdrop for GoldLink and Ciscero, who offers a seemingly breath-free verse for this feel good number.
