GIVEON has just arrived on our radar with his recent Drake collaboration on the track ‘Chicago Freestyle’, but it doesn’t appear as though he’ll be dropping off any time soon! His distinct, beautiful voice left us craving more, thus leading to the discovery of today’s Song of the Day, ‘LIKE I WANT YOU’. This song was released in November of last year, and it is a truly emotive love song. There’s something special in his voice that will forever set him apart. His deep voice and pure tone draws you in and refuses to let you go. We, too, often hear the complaint of ‘real R&B’ being rare as of late but I think it’s safe to say that we have an emerging crop of vocalists that provide true R&B. GIVEON, without a doubt, is in this conversation.
