THE ONE (Album) - MASK

Mask’s latest drop furthers his rather energetic sound while implementing dashes of heavier production & experimental vocal outings that toe the line between Hip Hop & blissed-out R&B. 🎧 He goes on to show off an entirely new style in almost every track which truly shows the dexterity he brings to the table, assuring that there is something here to love for everyone. 🎙 Opening up with “Icy”, he provides a record that’s accompanied by a dancehall-esque beat that is sure to appeal to most & make people move. 💃🏽 On “One By One”, he crafts a lovers anthem that proves that he can still play around with his different flows & rhyme schemes in some of the most interesting of ways. 🗣✨Up next is the infectious “Lay Low”, where he just seems to float over the beat, delivering some stellar verses with ease, seemingly creating a straight bop with the snap of a finger. 🔊🔥 “Fanya Like This” is probably the most unique track as he & Chief start marching to the beat with a slow-burning song that is blended with a lush instrumental & bilingual lyrics that have a perfect foundation to run off of, giving us a track that arrives full-circle as an enchanting offering. 🏝 Meanwhile, “Close to You” offers up a hazy & tropical love story that embodies the romanticism & feverish feelings that accompany newfound infatuation. 💓 “Badman” follows, which is a wishful love ballad packed with simple yet vibey production that highlights the best parts of Mask & Korbs bouncing ever so smoothly on top of the beat. 🚬 To conclude, he & Nessy finish the album off on “I Know”, with a track on which he wears his heart on his sleeve taking us up & down a wave aligned with layers of emotional crooning. 🧸 Overall, he managed to deliver quite the punch across all seven songs, & if there is any signature component to his style, it’s undoubtedly his ability to deliver catchy tunes. 🏆
