Joey Bada$$, known for his thoughtful and socially conscious lyrics, takes a romantic turn with “Fallin’,” a tune from his next album, JB4. “Fallin'” is sure to enthrall listeners as Joey goes into unexplored thematic waters, thanks to an exceptional production team that includes Chuck Strangers, Powers Pleasant, Adam Pallin, DJ Khalil, and McClenney.
The song begins with a playful start that sets the tone for the rest of the piece. Joey sings, “Roses are red and violets are blue / I might just cut off all my hoes for you.” This choice of words underlines his willingness to let go of the past and embrace new love.
Joey reveals the fragility and uncertainty that frequently accompany falling in love in the chorus: “I’m fallin’ for you / And I don’t wanna catch myself / No, I don’t wanna catch myself / And I don’t wanna catch myself.” The repeated phrases emphasize the hesitancy and commitment anxiety that are common throughout the early stages of a relationship.
The relaxing, melodic hook of the post-chorus perfectly complements the dreamy, celestial atmosphere. “Comin’ down, I feel like I’m comin’ down / This feels like summer now / I need you to love me now / Won’t you love me now?” Joey sings. The summer simile evokes warmth and brilliance, as well as the joy that love may bring.
The bridge depicts the psychological turmoil that a person in love goes through, swinging between entire dedication and fighting the need to contact their lover. This contradiction is typical in love songs, and Joey Bada$$’s lyrics eloquently express the emotional struggle.
Joey frankly discusses the dangers of love and the possibilities of loss in the song, declaring, “They say all is fair in love and war, and I’fraid to risk it all / Fuck it, if I trip and fall, barely do I miss your call.” Despite his reservations, he eventually admits that he is willing to go to any length for his love, including allowing her to shine brighter and creating a legacy together.
“Fallin’,” a change from his usual hard-hitting, politically motivated lyrics, reveals a new side of Joey Bada$$, demonstrating his versatility as an artist and illustrating his progress, as noted in his recent tweet. He acknowledges that listeners continue to like his last album, 2000, but expresses excitement about delivering new content.
“Fallin'” is an ambient love ballad with an appealing tune that will certainly resonate with listeners who have experienced the ups and downs of love. The song balances vulnerability with hope and optimism, resulting in an emotional journey for the listener.
The much-anticipated music video for “Fallin'” will be released later tonight, cementing Joey Bada$$’s dedication to his art and fans. With its relatable topic and superb production, “Fallin ′ “testifies to Joey Bada’s ability to learn and adapt as an artist.
