The guys of Tropic are back with another soulful cover …
Remember Tropic? The soulful Electro-R&B Pop duo I recently introduced you to. Well, now they’ve dropped a brand new cover. This time the groovy duo take on one of my faves, Frank Ocean and his hit “Thinkin’ Bout You”. Tropic is a group who is quickly becoming quite well versed in the world of cover songs. Most notably with their unique and fresh update on Earth Wind and Fire’s “September” (see my review here).
The duo, consisting of singer Jo-B Sebastian and producer Phuse aka Jarel Hill do justice to this cover as well. Once again Jo-B’s slightly husky tone (which also are very reminiscent stylistically of 80s R&B singers) glide along beautifully and the way Jo-B plays around with wording through vocal ad-libbing, pair perfectly to Jarel’s futuristic yet soulful production on this cover. Altogether the combination of the two creatively adds a new perspective on the Frank Ocean track which has become quite the groundbreaking track. So as I had mentioned prior, to do it justice is to do a song in your own way, which Tropic has successfully done.
