It may be my first time hearing him (and his first time gracing the pages of Lyrical Lemonade), but Rylo Rodiguez has been putting in work. “Easy To Love, his third single of the year (equipped with his second video) has garnered over 150,000 views in just two days, and it’s not hard to hear why; it’s most definitely rotation ready.
I always find it weird when people are concerned with the length of a song. If it works who cares if it’s two minutes or ten minutes? “Easy To Love” is the perfect example. I didn’t even realize it has a sub-two minute run time, partly because I replayed like seven times, and partly because it’s a complete track the way it is. Rodriguez has a real understated style and his introspective (yet still braggadocious) wordplay combined with the (always) stellar strings from Seph Got The Waves, gives the song a “full” atmosphere that has the perfect accentuations of R&B sprinkled into his rap framework.
