Mxxn Wave’s new signee Wilke$ steps into the spotlight with his debut single “Should I.” The singer/songwriter/producer hits all the right notes on a ballad that finds him at a crossroad, contemplating the viability of his relationship. During a recent Instagram live, the Virginia native revealed that the song is autobiographical, and that writing it helped him work through his feelings of uncertainty. Soncially, the guitar driven track can be described as “Neo-Nineties R&B.” It evokes all the nostalgia of 90s R&B, while maintaining a fresh, contemporary feel. Vocally, Wilke$ is in his element. His smooth, unique tone is a welcome standout amongst his industry peers. His vocal delivery is both conversational and engaging. With each passing chorus, you hear his emotional unrest building as he layers additional background vocals and Ad-libs. From the soulful chord progression to the impassioned vocal, the song’s bridge will remind you of the classic breakdowns of yesteryear that are sorely missing from today’s music. To put it simply, “Should I” is a must add for any R&B lover’s playlist. If “Should I” is any indication, Wilke$ has a bright future ahead of him. Listen to “Should I” below.
