Honestly Reviewed: New York-based recording artist Lachi’s new track ‘What I Want’ produced by Julian Javan

At times, she sounds offbeat, uninterested and deadpan. I believe the aquatic tropical beat is too fun for such execution.

Artists from all over the world reach out to me by way of a publicist, manager, or someone else of value, if not directly. Some music doesn’t sound as polished as the others. Others have what it takes, but they don’t have a budget for the best mixing and mastering around. Since that’s out in the open now, for anyone who is just visiting my website for the first time, I’d like to critique ‘What I Want’.

As the music came on, I thought of Chris Brown or a Popcaan crooning on the record. Then, the vocals came in. Unfortunately, I wasn’t a fan of its delivery. At times, she sounds offbeat, uninterested and deadpan. I believe the aquatic tropical beat is too fun for such execution. I think she could have been coached to sing it differently, so her voice would soar over the infectious dance production. The music stands alone by itself. That would be good if that’s what they were looking to achieve, but they weren’t. The song has vocals on it.
