I was sleeping too, but damn – Eric Bellinger is talented.
So, I’ve heard about Eric Bellinger for awhile now, but I never really gave him the attention he deserved. That’s completely my fault. I just so happened to be listening to a Spotify playlist at work a few months ago and his song G.O.A.T. came on and it caught my attention. Everything from the beat to the actual lyrics (I know, ya’ll don’t pay attention to lyrics anymore, but I do) was amazing. I’ve been listening to his music a lot lately and it is some of the best out right now. Yeah, I said it. Fight me.
Eric Bellinger is a very talented songwriter who has written for the likes of Usher, Chris Brown, and Trey Songz. He’s even won a grammy for his talents behind the pen. However, he needs to win a grammy for his talents behind a mic. He even did all the songs in an acoustic version! No one does that anymore – like ever. I’m hurt – in a good way. His music is what is missing from R&B right now. As an R&B person, its perfect. Its the perfect balance between contemporary and 90s R&B. If you haven’t listened to his two latest releases, stop what you’re doing, and listen to it now. I’m not playing with ya’ll. Get to it. Let me know what you think and have you been listening to Eric Bellinger?
