Thank God for the richness that is Giveon’s voice.
Imagine biting down into the smoothest piece of milk chocolate ever…that’s how listening to Giveon feels. A completely purifying experience.
Love hurts, love heals, love is loud, love is quiet, love is uncertain, and Giveon encapsulates the gist of it all in Take Time. The emerging talent is a West Coast native from Long Beach, California. In an interview with DJ Booth, Giveon credits old school artists such as Frank Sinatra, Barry White, Mary J. Blige, and Aretha Franklin, as inspirations. As well as new school artists like, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Miguel, and Frank Ocean.
His debut album is featureless with only sounds of Giveon’s velvety voice. It’s only 8 songs long and can be finished in under 25 minutes. It’s short and sweet, yet poignant and everlasting. Take Time also features production from boi-1da, wondaGURL, ASTROWORLD producer Sevn Thomas, and Giveon himself.
The album leaves you with a hankering for more. Giveon is continued proof that R&B is alive and well. Check out the full album here and my favorite tracks below!
