In Gary Jordan’s latest drop ‘Uncontrollable’, he beautifully employs an Ohio Players sample of the track ‘I Want to Be Free’. This slow-tempo track, laced with the piano-heavy sample allows Jordan’s voice to take the main stage. His deep lyrics speak about his current reality and his past experiences. The title ‘Uncontrollable’ represents his desire to be truly free and able to do and accomplish all he wishes. His rawness and vulnerability in this track are refreshing, a stark contrast to music’s current tide which consists of up-tempo Trap-influenced beats. Gary Jordan is undeniably posturing himself to be a well-respected lyricist in the game.
