Dating, rejection and all the feels that they come with can be a hard pill to swallow. Especially if what you did in a previous relationship comes back to bite you.
In his latest song, Boston-based artist Kwaku tells a story of his new love interest that plays games with him and toys with his feelings, similarly to how he’s behaved in the past. Hence, he gets a taste of his own medicine.
Though the lyrics allude to pain and heartbreak, they’re contrasted by the bouncy electronic beat, demonstrating that rejection doesn’t always have to be as miserable as we often make it out to be. The track, produced by Shadowkey, Spenser Edmund, and American Antagonist, features a mixture of singing and rapping by Kwaku. It’s heavily influenced by EDM, but manages to carve its own little niche in the genre with its hip hop influences.
Over the summer, Kwaku released the music video for his song, “OMW,” so we’re hoping he drops a video for “Medicine” in the near future.
