Months after his debut single, “God’s Whisper,” Atlanta singer Raury let loose his second effort with “Cigarette Song” produced by New York’s Daytrip and Raury himself. “Cigarette” starts out as a rhythmic and mellow piece until about a minute in, when the track essentially climaxes, and Raury is able to show what his voice is really capable of, before mellowing out again to come to a close.
As someone who wasn’t familiar with Raury prior to “Cigarette Song,” I’m pleasantly surprised and moreover intrigued by what this kid has to offer with his upcoming Indigo Child EP, which is still waiting on a release date. There’s no denying Raury’s talent, so it will be interesting to see how the singer’s first two singles influence his music to come.
Be sure to look out for Raury at OutKast’s homecoming festival in Atlanta, #ATLast from September 26-28 (Raury performs the 27th). Check out Raury’s new track below, along with his first, “God’s Whisper.”
