Armed with silky vocals and swaggering streetwise lyricism, Eric Bellinger dexterously blends Hip-Hop and R&B into a skilled, velvelty assault. Today, Karen Civil premieres “Make You Mine,” Eric’s dive into a more tropical sound. Lifted by lush production, “Make You Mine” is a steamy club banger featuring Eric Bellinger soulfully crooning along to saccharine harmonies and a pulsating dancehall stomp. Following the Wale-assisted “Treat Yourself,” “Make You Mine” is the second single from Eric B. For President: Term 2, which releases on March 10th. Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump.
Explains Eric Bellinger, “People are really into the Islandy/Caribbean vibes right now, so much that I started to feel like I would be crazy to just ignore that. However I knew if I was gonna make one it still had to be me. So I got transparent… I opened up and wasn’t afraid to make it personal. For this song I took it back and shared the chase that I was on when getting my girl. My first date with my now wife LaMyia was insane. I went all out. I had been on her for over a decade so I knew I had to make that first impression count. We had a conversation about cereal one night before we went out and we shared our love for cereal… From types of cereal to flavors of milk to sizes of bowls and spoons. I obviously did my thing because now she’s mine and TODAY our son just turned two years old!”
Capitalizing on the 2016 campaign season, Eric released the Eric B. and Rakim-referencing Eric B. For President: Term 1 in September 2016. Its forthcoming follow up, Eric B. For President: Term 2, knits together varied sounds from bossa nova, yacht rock, reggae, and other beach-friendly genres, forming a breezier version of his woozy, romantic brand of R&B. Featuring appearances from Wale, Victoria Monet, Elhae, and Tayla Parx, Eric B. For President: Term 2 is a radiant star in a graying, stormy sky, and the perfect soundtrack to a romantic interlude.
