GRiZ just wants to make happy music for those.
In the event you were worried about future funk phenom GRiZ during his year long hiatus of 2018, his newest release should dispel any notion that the 28-year-old has lost any of his glistening trademark energy. “Find My Own Way” featuring Wiz Khalifa is the latest in a string of promotional tracks leading to the release of his sixth studio album, Ride Waves.
Continuing this theme of positivity from the other lead paths (“It Gets Better,” “Im Good,” and “A New Day”-RRB-, “Find My Own Way” is a soulful, feelgood song slated as closer on the album’s 14-song tracklist. Its artwork seems to indicate as much, depicting a lucid yellow brick road resulting in a wondrous, vibrant world that we can only expect mirrors the soundscapes comprising his forthcoming project.
The track kicks off with playful piano scales that dance their way through the songs entirety, before greeting the listener with touch sax-squeals from GRiZ and mic compliments from its own emcee. The Pennsylvania rapper opens with autotune-assisted stability on a track that finds GRiZ’ production largely dancing in the background behind the prominently featured vocals. In addition to Khalifa, Griz also enlisted a complete choir to deliver the hook, reiterating the soul and gospel touched on the album’s previous singles.
The five-minute-long track’s production is purely instrumental, as the keys and brass work as accents to an already uplifting cadence and message out of its vocalists. The song also serves as a showcase of Griz’ ability to create his energy communicable through his art, and it’so infectious that’s sometimes overrides any of its shortcomings.
“Find My Own Way” by GRiZ and Wiz Khalifa functions as an effective album closer in what’s appears like a joyously fun and relaxing ride on Ride Waves, due out April 5th. Stream or download the single across platforms here.
