Spending his career in search for the perfect hook, Oakland’s Bobby Brackins is one of urban music’s melodic masters. Crafting a sweetly sentimental love song with influences from Caribbean music, hip-hop, and classic soul, Bobby opens up his heart with “My Love.”
Teaming up with fellow Bay Area hooksmith Marc E. Bassy, who croons a dancehall-inspired hook, Bobby gently describes an ideal day with his soulmate over a backing track that fizzes like sparkling rosé. Featuring an interpolation of Stevie Wonder‘s “Isn’t She Lovely,” “My Love” is the latest single from …To Kill For, Bobby’s upcoming EP. Featuring appearances from Jeremih, G-Eazy, Marc E. Bassy, P-Lo, Olivia O’Brien, August Grant, and Joy, and with production from Nic Nac,, Count Bassy, and Davidior, …To Kill For arrives later this summer via EMPIRE.
A recent winner at the BMI Pop Awards for his effort writing DJ Khaled’s #1 hit “I’m The One,” and after earning industrywide acclaim for or co-writing radio anthems like Chris Brown‘s “Loyal,” and Tinashe’s “2 On,” Bobby is ready to command the spotlight for himself with his upcoming EP. The second in a planned EP trilogy, following 2016’s …To Live For and preceding …To Die For, …To Kill For is a breezy summertime listen, packed with radio-ready bangers, romantic jams, and rider’s anthems, all tied together by Bobby’s impeccable songcraft. Earlier this month, Bobby shared the tropical video for “Whiplash 2.0,” featuring Marc E. Bassy and P-Lo. In July, Complex premiered Bobby’s latest single “Big Film,” an entrancing new summer jam featuring a verse from G-Eazy and a gorgeous hook from Jeremih. “Big Film” is currently available gratis with pre-order of …To Kill For EP.
