The album features both of the breakout talent’s acclaimed recent singles, the D-Smoke collaboration “The Mood,” praised by Rated R&B for its “infectious chorus” and Ray’s “honeyed vocals…over the silky production,” and “Gold,” which Billboard called “a lush, romantic ode.” The album also finds Arin head-to-head with some of R&B’s preeminent stars, including Ty Dolla $ign (“Nothing’s Forever”), Ari Lennox (“What It Is”), and Blxst (“Bad Idea”). Arin also sneaks in a treat for R&B purists by tapping Brandy on background vocals for his stirring record “Storm.”

The uncertainty and fear that lied within the beginnings of the pandemic is a topic the entire world is able to easily grasp, as we desperately tried to understand the significance oof this “new normal”.
