To say that we have been waiting for Rico to make a full-fledged comeback is an understatement. We have loved all the little teasing singles that he has dropped (both officially and unofficially) and recently posted his first album on our Audiomack page to introduce those who missed out to his beautiful voice. And now we finally have a new album to enjoy…or, at least, the first half.
While we wait for the full project to be released sometime next month, we get to enjoy his new, upbeat single. Come My Way is one of those songs that has an underlying energy to it thanks to the frantically strummed acoustic guitar and underlying rhythms. It’s not a hectic beat, but is something that makes you want to get on your feet and dance.
Rico’s delivery on this is just perfect. He has a naturally smooth tone and does not do a lot to deviate from it, but he adds nice little flourishes to his performance that meet the production where it’s at in just the right moments. When he does lapse into his smoother tone, he matches a lowkey bass melody that is just under the surface. He gives the track a dimension that could have gone unnoticed.
If you like this, check out the first single from this album, Paradise; it’s Raphael Saddiq-like vibes are a killer.
We’ll have a translation for you as soon as possible.
