The song ‘Slide’ is said to not only show his passion and hunger but “exhibits his youthfulness, from the catchy urban beat that will get you moving to his memorable lyrical content that is perfectly conveyed on the track, making ‘Slide’ a perfectly crafted masterpiece that guarantees to usher in the warmer seasons, that are known for fun fresh music, in style”. This single, co-produced by up-and-coming producer Christer, is further said to promises to take the listener on a musical journey that is populated by explosive bars that are strategically laid on “Slide”…
