Jack Harlow defies convention as much as his new mentor did with Comeback Season. The defining sound of our modern era is very much “808s and trap breaks”; with Come Home The Kids Miss You, Jack Harlow signals what perhaps could be the next evolution of the sound for the still-young decade ahead – just like someone we know. He’s willing to take the risk of diverging from the mainstream with his glossy collection of synth horns harkening back to the days when T.I. and Bow Wow held radio in a chokehold. But he’s also perfectly positioned to be the one to spark this latest nostalgia wave, what with TikTok being deluged in 2000s hits and radio playing a song sampling Mariah Carey four times an hour. — Aaron Williams, Senior Editor, UPROXX Music
