R&B singers often like to portray themselves as expert seducers, able to wrap women around their finger with nothing more than a few well-chosen words. On indie singer Markell Clay‘s new promo single, however, it’s the chick who has him weak in the knees. As he puts it over Jamezz Bonn‘s delayed keys and hip hop-tinged rhythm section, “I think I’ve found my West Coast Crush.” YMCMB’s Tyga handles verse two, plying the object of his affections with promises of a getaway to Paris, and the Golden State’s own Game recounts his latest tryst in a racy closing 16. Have you fallen head-over-heels for Markell Clay’s smooth sound? Then stay tuned; while Crush is only a loosie, I have a feeling we’ll be hearing more from this ATL crooner in the very near future.
This is the first song featured on DJBooth from this artist. If you would like to hear more, be sure to rate and comment!
