Up-and-coming New York artist Flare embraces his more melodic side and delivers the incredibly catchy “Bad Ting,” the latest track stemming from his studio sessions as he preps for his next project.
The Washington Heights native made some waves over the past few years following the release of his debut, 2015’s NoToNoise, and its standout singles, “Real Ones” and “Greatness.” Whereas those tracks were more steeped in pure Hip-Hop, “Bad Ting” finds Flare switching things up and spitting with a Caribbean-tinged sing-song flow. He’s clearly been inspired by a certain someone, and let’s hope her role as his muse doesn’t wear off anytime soon.
Flare’s vocal direction is matched perfectly by U.K. producer Scott Supreme, who pairs thick bass with ear worm rhythms that take “Bad Ting” to another level. It’s the type of tropical, low-key banger made for your next weekend playlist—and let’s be real, summer’s not over yet.
Give “Bad Ting” a listen and keep an eye out for more news about Flare’s upcoming project in the near future.
