Emerging R&B artist Reggie Becton has released a super-moody single, “Streets,” which surrounds his voice with a murky, R&B-drill production.
Staged as a unique track for night owls, “Streets” delves deeply into the mind of a downhearted Becton. He can’t seem to get his wits about himself following a hard breakup. He self-mediates himself in the best way possible, from drinks and passionless flings to the sound of Ari Lennox songs (Hint: “Up Late“).
“Drinking like its casual / I’m tied of feeling sad / Could p***y be my antidote / I see you everywhere I go / Are you in somebody’s bed / Why you leaving me on read / ‘Cause all night I been fighting logic / Up late listening to Ari,” Becton sings on the Ehll Evans-produced track.
“Streets” is Becton’s third song in a lead role this year. He previously released “Sway” in August and collaborated with Nana for “Call” in June. The latter track is close to one million streams on Spotify. It has not been announced if any of these three tracks are part of a larger project or standalone singles.
Becton’s debut album, California, arrived in October 2021. The 12-song LP featured the focus track “Issues,” which had an accompanying visual directed by Chris & Moy.
Becton has a couple of shows lined up for this fall. First, on Nov. 11, he will perform at The Peppermint Club in Los Angeles, California. Then, three days later, on Nov. 18, he will take the stage at Songbyrd in Washington, D.C. Lastly, on Nov. 20, he will play a concert at Mercury Lounge in New York City. Get your tickets here.
