Paris is an up and coming artist from LA. I first discovered who he was via Toopoor and Tyler Grosso as he’s their friend. He released his first song ‘Po’ed UP‘ which was my favourite song for a long long time.
He’s now released his third song ‘Bones’ yesterday. I’m sorry but I just have to say this, from the time I clicked on the song and heard the beat I rolled my eyes. The beats made by Taylor King and it is a wavey beat. However, I’ve heard it on so many soundcloud rappers/singers songs. I’m not really sure why so many people have this beat but in my personal opinion he only should’ve given it out to one artists as now it’s repetitive and boring. What’s happened to originality guys?!
Having said that, I wish this was the first time I was hearing the beat as it goes so well with this song. The song itself is very catchy and I’m already singing along. What I like about this song is that it has meaning behind it and you can tell he’s singing/rapping from personal experience and the heart. My only negative comment is that it’s too repetitive and the whole song is just repeating itself.
There’s a few lyrics that stood out to me on a personal level: “And I’m tired of feeling used” and “Always thinking, got something to prove.” These two got me in my feels as these are daily feelings for me. He also sang “Will fall away, and die alone,” that’s pretty deep and is most people’s fear in life.
Overall, I do like this song a lot I’ll probably just try not to listen to it too often as I’ll get bored quickly.
