Leon Bridges - "Sweeter"


Leon Bridges has shared a new single that speaks to the current times. It features Terrace Martin and is worth your attention.

Crooning over a trap-style beat, Bridges continues to evolve his retro-soul sound and uses his inspiring words to draw the attention on this one. While his melodies have always remained simple, with a reserved power, it feels more true than ever on this one as he lets the lyrics do the work with his beautiful, soulful vocals assisting to do the song justice. It's short, simple, yet oh so sweet. It's equally triumphant as it is heartbreaking and an unfortunate ode to the racism plaguing our country.
