Given that each genre has its own nearly infinite potential, genre-bending takes talent, skill and ambition to experiment with unfamiliar genres. Fortunately, Nonso Amadi has proven to have all it takes and then some as he pulls off a monumental cross from acoustic R&B to EDM on his latest single, “Long Live The Queen”.
While the guitar-heavy instrumentals aren’t new on Nonso Amadi releases, the lyrics are a lot more weighted. The mellow tune that the single opens with reflects the numbing feelings of being lonely and despite words like “I Never Loved You” ringing through the course of the song, the tempo remains somber for the most part of the song.
Synths give “Long Live The Queen” a much needed upbeat atmosphere that forces the song into EDM’s groovy soundscape. Though the bass drop doesn’t come till the latter part, it’s fun enough to be worth the wait. You can stream Nonso Amadi’s latest single below.
