Are you currently with that special girl or guy in your life who makes you feel like you’re walking on air? If you are, be careful, because air doesn’t offer much stability and you may fall to your death if you’re reckless. To prevent that, you need reinforcement; lucky for you, DJBooth Freestyle Alum Novel’s latest effort, Walkin’ on Air should help you keep your balance. From the flawless sensuality of Novel’s vocals to the trademark electro-falsetto provided by Colin Munroe to Novel’s Defying the Predictable partner Joell Ortiz’ effortless glide on the mic, Walkin’ on Air is bulletproof from every angle – you can’t bring it down. The award for most valuable player is pretty much a three-way tie, but none of them would be anything without Novel’s ethereal production, which captures what my dreams sound like, or at least my good ones. Novel is one of only a handful of singers who can do no wrong, so it’s only right that his upcoming album Calligraphy, which will include Walkin’, drops “soon”, as well as his long-awaited mixtape Legato Summer Blues, coming in September.
