    “Aqua Arm,” while maintaining a stylistic similarity to Santana’s previous releases, offers a more introspective look into the artist’s world. With its repetitive lyricism, the project delves into the complex layers of Santana’s selfhood. The project’s energetic engagement and production serve as an artistic expression of the rising artist’s journey, evoking moments of invincibility while also attempting to ground himself in reality. Speaking on a recurring theme, Santana shared, “Duality was a big one; I’m a Gemini, so I guess it could be that, but also, it’s about showing one face to the world and hiding another at a given time.”

    “Aqua Arm” represents a composition of considerable complexity, offering listeners a nuanced exploration of the artist’s inner experiences while tapping into the different sub-genres of hip-hop. Santana invites his audience to immerse themselves in an introspective and sonically captivating musical journey. “I have a lot to say, and music is a chance for me to say it right. I want to be more analytical of this big world on wax and not just analytical of myself. So, I’m looking to have more purpose behind my music. I’m not saying it’s devoid of it, but I can definitely stretch a little farther. This album helped me warm up.”
