As soon as I read that Negash Ali already had a publishing deal and had success working behind the scenes, I was wary. Normally, it is in the public’s best interest for the behind-the-scenes figures to remain in the shadows and I wish someone would tell them that before they try beefing with Beyonce, or are Sean Garrett.
Negash Ali, though, shows promise with “What You Want.” Beat selection is beyond important, of course, and this one is like a hodgepodge of different pieces. Taken separately, they might not work, but here they come together and it feels like a celebration. Not to let his choice of instrumental take all the shine, the 22-year-old Eritrean also employs a variety of flows, and has captured our attention with this video.
I’m still not sure why he wants me to get in the car, though.
