American hip hop/R&B recording artist, songwriter, and engineer AyeJay Freez drops his recent single "Catch22". Since the release of his notable mixtape "#2kthegoat", Ayejay Freez (a.k.a. Arbie Glover IV) has worked day and night to strengthen his sound and brand as an artist. With his most recent hit "Catch22", we can sense that the song surrounds an unhealthy relationship where it grows into more of an attachment and knowing that it's not right for you. AyeJay Freez also brings an enormous intriguing factor within the song's production, giving off a dark and sensual atmosphere that lets you contemplate on what doesn't serve you anymore.
With heavily filtered pianos that slowly increase in volume, "Catch22" opens with such a heavy vibe right for the start. What keeps our ears peeled during the intro is the vibrating sub-bass that fluently converses with our soul. As AyeJay Freez brings in his warm and flawless vocal abilities, we're impressed by how he sings such clear lyrics of loving someone for just a bit too long. Highlighting lyrics like, "I know you bad for me, and I'm so bad for you it's a catch22" AyeJay Freez emphasizes the meaning of a paradoxical situation and not being able to leave. While the production of the track stays consistent and ambient throughout the entirety, it's evident that AyeJay Freez has conjured up "Catch22" with nothing but heart.
