By now, the name SAINt JHN should sound familiar. After his recent and ikonic premier on “BROWN SKIN GIRL” off Beyoncé’s album The Lion King: The Gift , he’s a rising international sensation. This year he also dropped off his own collaborative efforts with album teasers like “Trap” and “Anything Can Happen.”
Finally, the full body collection surfaces featuring Meek Mill, Lil Baby, A Boogie Wit da Hoodie and the legendary Lenny Kravitz. The Guyanese-American, Brooklyn bred rapper, singer, songwriter, producer and rising King of melodies truly shines in this project from his genre ambidexterity to his indisputable pen game – he’s showing off!
SAINt JHN is a chameleon and chameleons make for the best artists.
The album opens with his intoxicatingly melodic record “Wedding Day” where he raps, “ You can be a suspect, you can be a custy / Still know how the trap work, even if I’m rusty / These are still the hood rules, this the way it must be /If you’re not a made man, you can not discuss me,” – an undeniable banger. As the album proceeds he slips into his love conscience with tracks like “Who Do You Blame” and “Borders” to guitar led slow jams like “I Can Fvcking Tell.” Each tune tells a different story of lust, passion and realizations amid hood-vibes and head-bobbers like “All I Want Is A Yacht.”
This body of work is imbued with flavors from spicy love to tangy trap.
SAINt JHN told Apple Music about Ghetto Lenny’s Love Songs, “I imagine if me and a stripper got married, we’d play this at our wedding reception…And then at the wedding reception, and after the divorce, at the signing of the paperwork.” With that being said, take a listen below.
