R&B chanteuse Stout is continuing to show why she is one of the most exciting voices in R&B with her new single “Under.” The song is a standout on her latest EP “Highs and Lows.” When we recently reviewed her single “On The Fence,” it was clear that she had won our hearts and ears with her unique brand of R&B. This song only elevated our love for her music, and seeing her visual output has us amped for more videos from her in the future.
“I’m trying to find my way out. I need some help. I can’t see my way. I need some help,” she she sings on the vulnerable tune. She sings about the weight of life getting her down and her struggle to get out from “under.” The song is a masterclass in vocals. The layered harmonies in the chorus are paired with her uncanny ability to alter her voice to a gritty, evocative color as she ad-libs towards the end of the song. The beautiful black and white video pairs perfectly with the song. The video is performance-driven which allows Stout to really drive home the deeper message of the song as it pertains to mental health. Great song. Great video. Be sure to add this one to your current playlist.
