Although From A Bird’s Eye View underperformed in the sales and numbers department, Cordae is still on a respectable run. His album satisfied a lot of listeners, especially his core fanbase, and he’s been making sure his message is heard. Cordae has done a string of interviews, music videos, and performances to continue his stay in the spotlight, with his showing on Colors being the most recent.
Though “Chronicles” received assistance from the likes of Lil Durk and H.E.R. on the official release, Cordae handles this performance on his own. The track stands as one of his most melodic songs, and his vocals are on full display through the duration of his verse. As with most Colors performances, his approach to the song comes with minor tweaks and changes of lyrics and delivery, but it undoubtedly sounds true to the song’s origin as far as notes go.
As mentioned, Colors is only one of the recent platforms Cordae has had the opportunity to perform on. Recently, he performed on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon and had an NPR Tiny Desk performance (featuring live ensemble). He’s making it his mission for From A Bird’s Eye View to get the attention he feels it deserves.
