He has proven that since his debut, FREE 6LACK, which put him on the map in 2016.
Fast forward to 2023 and the Baltimore R&B talent has grown his catalog a lot in these past nine months. After dropping his East Atlanta Love Letter LP back in 2018, 6LACK took his time to release another solo project. In fact, he waited five years, before giving his hungry fans Since I Have A Lover. That project has done well for him and he is carrying his new momentum with a two-pack of singles.
“Homicide” features Canadian singer Jessie Reyez for a toxic love tale. These two have worked together a few times already, and they have a fun time with this one. The melodies are very catchy and the chorus will have you undoubtedly becoming a toxic partner too. “Mean It” is the more mellow of the two. The tune is also very intoxicating, but it is about 6LACK breaking up with his partner. He wants to know how serious she is about it, needing reasons behind all of her undesirable behavior.
