In this era of political disillusionment and declining religious faith, people are hard-up for something to Believe in. I wouldn’t suggest pinning all of your hopes and dreams to any up-and-coming rapper—the game is too damn unpredictable—but if you were to do so, SonReal wouldn’t be a half-bad selection. On his latest single, featured along with Peter Huang‘s official visuals, the Canadian buzzmaker emphasizes his commitment to the grind and his wholehearted dedication to his fans. As he (and a full children’s choir) put it on the hook, “If I make you smile, I’ve done my job at last.” Complete with a pensive, keyboard-led instrumental by 2oolguy, this cut is just the beginning of the fresh material to be found on SonReal’s forthcoming free album, One Long Day. Watch our pages for further singles off the set, which is scheduled for release on Tuesday, January 21.
