A few months ago, we were introduced to the sharp sounds of Boaty Blanco, a unique East Coast talent who had become one of the most intriguing and talked about acts in modern hip-hop. A talented performer with a penchant for blending real-world grit with heavy, expressive beats, Blanco made his mark with the brilliant ‘Nonchalant’, but now, with the release of ‘Better Off’, he’s taken things to a whole new level.
A brilliant new release that perfectly showcases his unique sound, ‘Better Off’ was brought to us by Lenna Kidd, an up-and-coming journalist who first covered the track. In her piece, Lenna artfully described the new release, stating,
“’Better Off’ derives from the aching heartbreak one goes through when chasing a career and this is true for singer/songwriter Boaty Blanco. Having to leave the one you love for something you love just as much can melt the brain into nothing. This song captures that feeling fuses it into an extraordinary beat, and produces a lyrical masterpiece.”
“Throughout the journey into ‘Better Off’ we feel everything Boaty and his featuring singer/songwriter Yeddi are feeling. From this massive heartbreak to the effects of drug and alcohol abuse, to how music can have negative effects on relationships; listeners can escape into their hearts and feel it all. This song is about feeling lost, but listeners can feel seen by having something so powerful to relate to. ‘Better Off’ is also engineered by Randy Gilson, produced by Alanfor, and their incredible music video is shot by Bugge Productions.”
Easily one of Blanco’s most emotive and effective releases to date, ‘Better Off’ is contemporary hip-hop at its most raw and impressive. You can tune in to the new single today on all major platforms, and make sure you check out his complete catalogue where you can uncover his unique and undeniable emo-rap style.
