Khalil – “Buddy (So Fly)”
“Buddy (So Fly)” consists of a very appealing production. The hearty base, graceful instrumentation, snazzy upbeat rhythm, and trendy vibe make for a dynamic combination. The hook is refreshing. The vocals are polished and the lyrics are simple yet delightful. The verses are fulfilling. Khalil exercises both his singing and rapping abilities. He uses both mediums in an impressive fashion with well blended tones and enchanting lyrics. He gives an expressive account regarding a special lady that has his attention. It should be mentioned that there is definitely a sprinkling of influence from Musiq Soulchild‘s hit single “B.U.D.D.Y.” made evident throughout the offering. A handful of lines that make a bit of a splash are: “Black is beautiful. I really love your melanin. Plus you got no plastic on your cuticle. I got pictures at you at work up in my cubicle. Everything you wearing so suitable. You sicker than the average and more than the usual. And I’m so intrigued by who influenced you. Plus you’re so natural. (…) Now you a queen so I gotta bow.” Those are some seriously flattering bars right there. Overall, this song is a gem and it doubles as an awesome introduction to Khalil as an artist.
