About the track “A NIGHT WITH YOU”
“A Night With You” is a fantasy I was having of spending one night with this girl I was thinking about at the time and how she effected my life over the summer period of 2019. The song started off with me finding a piano sample (heard at the beginning), and building on it. I wanted to think/expand on the idea of using worldly instruments because I thought this girl was diverse and which led to me adding asian instruments like the Chinese Erhu Violin and other instruments like the Indian Sitar. After that I added arranged a drum loop consisting of different elements (kick, snare, hats, shakers, etc). After hearing what I had come up with, I thought of Chris Brown’s single “Fine China” off of his 2014 album “X”, and started dissect how all the elements in the production work together, providing room to breath. After, I started singing melodies as if I were singing smoothly to a girl. In this case, that girl I was thinking about all summer. The chorus came from just the frustration of me thinking to myself “If only if I had one night with this girl”. As funny as it sounds, yes. I did say that. The feature is from my homegirl Ashlye. She came in and played the girls part as a call and response to how I’m feeling in the first verse. The lyrics to me, are raw; smooth with a sense of gentleness and unforgiving romance.
