As co-writer of the track, Thomas beautifully elicits sincere and poignant passion pulling at our heartstrings. Vocally evoking fragility and vulnerability lifting the relationship and his love for someone way beyond the breaking point. Melodically the beat follows seamlessly along with the lyrics of the track storyline.
“…I can’t turn down the noise / you are my only choice…/ they told me love was fragile/ they told me love was breakable/ I thought that I could handle/ but that is still debatable/ I thought this was for me/ but it’s feeling impossible/ breaking point/breaking point…”
“Breaking Point” is filled with introspection and self-realization that recognizes when the relationship pendulum begins to swing far from comfort and center. Acknowledging when one’s own heart, mind, and feelings need to be nourished and valued. It’s perhaps the point of no return.
Thomas shares the meaning behind the song saying, “When we’re at a crossroads, it’s important to have the courage to follow the path that needs to be taken despite the flood of conflicting emotions. Love is fragile, and sometimes nourishing a relationship is the toughest challenge.”
“Breaking Point” is already catching fire as it premiered and featured today in the latest ‘Beats by Dre’ spot starring NBA athlete and global icon LeBron James and his son Bronny James. The heartwarming commercial highlights an unbreakable bond between father and son. Watch the Beats by Dre spot HERE.
The track “Breaking Point” will certainly top the charts, and will be played on repeat as he gives us food for thought, something to marinate on.
