Rome Fortune – “Love”

Green-bearded, cowboy boot-rocking ATLien Rome Fortune will soon give his unorthodox swag a proper introduction on his debut LP Jerome Raheem Fortune. Following the KAYTRANADA-produced lead single and accompanying video for “Dance,” Romey Rome shares “Love” along with details on the new album. A ballad of sorts dedicated to his children, “Love” finds him spitting a heartfelt confessional about his regret of missing their first steps and birthdays. Then he moves to some Auto-Tuned crooning over dreamy synths and airy drums with plenty of slap and reverb. To be honest, I never understood how Fortune was able to build such a buzz, but I’m starting to understand it now. If the other songs are as intimate and exploratory as this one, Jerome Raheem Fortune will be excellent. Check out “Love” below.
