Four months after releasing his debut album, Sonder Son, rising artist Brent Faiyaz releases a bonus track titled “Make Luv.” On the song, he Fiayaz claps back at anyone who has doubted him in the past.
“Gave you all I had but it wasn’t enough / Thought I wasn’t much but now you wanna make love / Now you wanna make love to me,” he sings.
The Columbia, Md. native further explained the meaning behind the song to Bazaar. “It’s just about bossing up on whoever was with you and fronted on you or acted like you wasn’t good enough,” he said. “You boss up, and they all want to come back around, like, ‘I see you. I’m so proud of you.’ I’m like, ‘Yeah, okay.'”
Although Faiyaz is relatively new to the music scene, his guest vocals on D.C. rapper Goldlink’s hit single “Crew” landed him a Grammy nomination for Best Rap/Sung Performance.
Fans can catch Faiyaz on his sold-out tour. He has upcoming stops in Houston, Los Angles and London.
