In addition to having a truly stellar last name, Kyle Lucas has a refreshingly humble perspective in an industry which, if you aren’t careful, will change you (and not for the better). On his new single, Rainy Nights, the Georgia native gets back to his roots, spitting over a heartfelt Simon Illa beat powered by a sped-up sample of Brook Benton’s classic Rainy Night in Georgia. With the soulful beat behind him, Kyle gets introspective, sharing details about a lost friend, his worrying mother, and the complexities of dealing with success. While his energy and charisma will make you feel good, the thoughtful, bittersweet, lyrics will leave you feeling pensive—much like Rainy Nights. This joint is not attached to a larger project, but fans can, of course, keep it locked for the latest news and tunes from Kyle Lucas.
