Rising R&B singer Motaz is bringing The heat with his brand new single “Un-Break.” The song is built around a sample of Toni Braxton’s iconic hit “Un-Break My Heart.” Lets be honest, it takes a lot of courage to attempt to flip a song as classic as “Un-Break My Heart.” The big question is does he pull it off? The answer is a resounding yes.
The Oregon native succeeds because he completely reimagines the song, and he gives a modern day response to the original protagonist’s request. Lyrically, he offers to help heal her broken heart all while recognizing she is just using him to heal. With all this talk of entanglements and whether or not it’s wrong to use someone to get over someone else, this song is perfectly timed.
For those not in the know, Motaz is a first generation Egyptian-American singer, songwriter, engineer and producer. The talented star taught himself to play guitar, piano, and bass. His commitment to all aspects of his art make him a true modern day renaissance man. He even edited the video for the single. The video is a sleek, simple well produced live performance video that allows his showmanship to take center stage. Remember the name Motaz because he is destined to become a household name.
