On mixtape lead single Heaven, Cris Cab put his game-spitting abilities to the test as he persuaded a Bible-believing shawty to let go of her inhibitions. The freshly-released follow-up finds the Miami singer-songwriter trying to coax another reticent chick out of her shell; this time, though, it’s a simple lack of self-esteem that’s keeping her from letting him in. As on the aforementioned cut, Cris Cab and PJ McGinnis double up behind the boards, crafting a sugary Island-pop groove to back the singer as he encourages the girl in question to cut loose and let her True Colors shine. RCA recording artist Mike Posner echoes the headliner’s sentiments on the guest tip. Like what you’re hearing? More fresh, summery jams await on Cris’ Red Road Mixtape, set to drop digitally April 16. Also watch our pages for the latest on Cab’s Mercury Records debut album, coming sometime this fall.
