The pleasure is added further where the deep-phased bass blend with the other instruments and drums to engineer a club-like flavored R&B tune with her strong vocals smoothly ebbing and flowing to the rhythm of the melody in magical ways; Payton transcends emotions and genre barriers, elevating her performance to a level that the listener has always longed for. This powerful tune entices you from start to finish and demands some repeated listening experience as you savor its lavish melodicism!
