Review for the new single release, ‘Backstabber’ by Mon’Quez

Mon’Quez introducing brand new studio single: Backstabber. A combination of soulful melodies and personal lyrics with an emotional twist.

July 2020 – Mon’Quez is back on the scene with a brand new studio single titled Backstabber. The song reveals the artist’s soothing and intimate vocal style, going for a personal and emotional twist with every line.

Backstabber is a quintessential neo-soul song, but it also features some classic R&B vibes as well, especially due to the smooth arrangement and Mon’Quez’ highly dynamic vocal parts. The drums are feathered beautifully, with a nice touch on the hats and some great snare tones to top it all off.

If you are a fan of artists such as D’Angelo, Stevie Wonder or Ray Charles, this one is definitely going to be right up your alley. We really enjoy the direct song arrangement, with Mon’Quez giving one of his warmest vocal performances to date. The choruses have a beautiful set of harmonies, creating a nice contrast with the verses, which are more understated.
