Hip-hop artist Billy Reeves and Melbourne musician IJALE collab on their new single, “CAPRI MOON,” a silky-smooth rap tune with elements of numerous genres such as jazz-rap and lo-fi. The track is flawlessly executed, both showcasing Reeve’s and IJALE’s unique voices yet never overpowering the velvety smooth instrumental.
“CAPRI MOON” is one of those songs that has something for everyone; fans of rap, jazz, lofi, and even lovers of poetry and spoken word won’t get enough of this ultra-catchy tune. Not only is the song itself fun to listen to, but the impeccable artistry that the two display in their lyricism is what really catches my ears.
