They used to look at me funny when I said I loved Makonnen. Some still do. The real ones never did.

Makonnen speaks to the real. He speaks to the soul. He’s got hits, sure, but his real gift is his vulnerability and willingness to share it with the world in the form of almost nonhuman pitches and melodies. His latest jam, “Leave It There,” is in that exact, introspective vein, much like almost all of my Makonnen favorites.

Listen to the Sonny Digital-produced cut below, and stay tuned for more.
