Heart Eyed set to save the world for the better with his new EP ‘Savers’

Heart Eyed has just releases a new song called ‘Woke Up In’, produced by Falsecut under the alias Vinnythewizard. This single is part of an upcoming EP title ‘Savers’. Heart Eyed’s vocal delivery is a mix between Baby Smoove, Rio Da Yung OG, with hints of Curren$y and Drake flows mixed in, all while drugged out on whatever he’s taken that day. The result is a very dry, to the point attitude that almost forces you to agree with or think twice about whatever he is rapping about. The beats are ridiculously hard-hitting, with an unforgivably heavy, yet bouncy 808 bass line, crisp and in your face drums, and a melancholy/spacious/orchestral melody to bring it all together. This somewhat confusing mixture is what makes Heart Eyed’s new singles from his upcoming EP, “Savers” sound rigid, one-of-a-kind, truthful, and painful when talking about the harsh realities of his own world and the world around us. Heart Eyed is not the type to lie to his listener’s; he simply opens the door to a world potentially unfamiliar to those who haven’t struggled with drug addiction, a poor/broken family, and loyalty within your group (among many other topics, some of which seem to […]
