Syd, the lead singer of neo-soul band The Internet, unveiled her first solo single with accompanying video. "About Me" is a laid back ode to staying down for those closest to you. With it, she's wading into the waters of trap r&b, the nascent genre that mixes smooth vocals and harmonies over trap beats.
The video is pretty straight forward. The singer/producer is hanging out in a garage telling us about her commitment to authenticity and her crew while they hang out nearby.
The song itself is immediately replayable in a Bryson Tiller kind of way.
24-year-old Sydney Bennett, formerly known as Syd the Kyd, was once a member of alternative hip hop group Odd Future and went on to form the new band with two of the collective's other members. Their latest album Ego Death made it to the top 10 of the r&b album charts and produced the must buzzed about single, Girl.
