If you haven’t hopped on the Maeko bandwagon yet, you better act fast. The Boston, Massachusetts-based artist’s vocal deliveries and flows mixed with his undeniably mature songwriting is the perfect recipe to blow. Each new release captivates listeners with his genre-bending style that fuses indie/alternative elements and hip-hop into one unique sound. After initially catching my attention with his 2020 EP ‘Good Grief,’ I’ve kept a close eye on the rising artist. Now, he is back with his latest single ‘Cool,’ and it just might be his best release yet.
Produced by Dephrase, Maeko takes listeners on an incredible ride full of beautiful melodies, sharp pop elements, and lyrics that paint vivid pictures. From his melodic yet intensified flow to the ample wordplay displayed throughout, it’s safe to say Maeko is valid in the department of versatility and artistry. Overall, ‘Cool’ is balanced to perfection, and Maeko keeps us entertained with his ability to switch flows. If you’re not familiar with him yet, there’s no better time than now to get hip to an artist with a promising future.
