We took a listen to Pharaoh Hussein’s single titled “Run Up” produced by the legendary Zaysace P and this single was a huge hit. This song had a trendy lyrical approach with a catchy hook. It’s the type of hook that gets stucks in the listener’s head because the vibe is so contagious. Pharaoh Hussein’s cadence style is quite unique and almost idiosyncratic to him. Although the lyrics can get a tad repetitive after a minute, the song still manages to somehow give you transitional surprises in the production of the beat, thus keeping you highly attentive to the entire track. “Run Up” is club ready! I instantly visioned my friends and I banging this track on our ready to function or even while we turn up in a large social setting. Pharaoh Hussein knows how to captivate and deliver the energy that radiates through the music. You can’t help but get hyped when listening to this music because the beat is so addictive.
You find yourself swaying your head back and forth naturally moving with the rhythm. I can see “Run Up” being a marketable single that will resonate well with a large audience of music lovers. It’s raw enough for the hip-hop fans and diverse enough to cater to the non-rap lovers. It’s an all-around vibrant and catchy track that you will undeniably fall in love with the way we did.
