Love Is – [Ausar] x [Bairi]
Chicago’s own Ausar connects with Hershey, PA artist Bairi for an impeccable new track titled “Love Is.” Following “Homies,” the song serves as Ausar’s first single release of 2022, and unsurprisingly it couldn’t be more excellent. Equally versed in rapping and singing, this particular offering essentially gloats his top-tier stylistic qualities. Effortlessly alternating from a verse to a showcase of vocals, Ausar’s slickness remains all the same no matter the type of record. With a highly memorable and sonically pleasing chorus, it’s quite absurd how Bairi comfortably shines with a corresponding phenomenal verse of her own. The unique, highly-skilled production from a pacing standpoint is suitable for both artist’s talents, and the background piano in particular solidifies the record’s elegance. Along with Joyce Wrice and Kaytranada’s “Iced Tea,” this track deservingly joins my personal songs of the year nominees so far. I absolutely cannot wait to hear more new music from Ausar; notably a full-fledged project release that he’s been teasing his fans over. No matter the duration, the wait will certainly be worth it, since there is no question that his discography will always be top quality. Listen to “Love Is” by Ausar, featuring Bairi below!
