From the very start, Saay Park's "Hobby" captivates with what seems to be reminiscent of a classic sample with voices layered on top of each other that add an undeniable richness to the track. "Hobby" overall boasts a mellow feel yet is equally elegant and beautifully emotive. The sample amplifies the catchiness of the production that smoothly breaks when Saay Park begins his verse.
The authenticity of his vocals ring out as he proclaims, "Tell me what you want from me" in a seductive way that the listener can't help but to believe his conviction. Saay Park meets his listeners with a bold artistic statement, "what I gotta do to make you love me... no need to take his slowly." He pleads his case in a way that commands yet is warm and intimate. He combines the heaviness of modern production with feel good vocals that makes "Hobby" the perfect blend of R&B.
He presents himself as not only a good vocalist but also a passionate songwriter that truly knows how to capture a voice. His uniqueness while staying true to the essence of R&B allows him to stand out among his peers while maintaining artistic integrity. Saay Park shows off both his extraordinary voice and his remarkable ability to turn basic phrases into impassioned declarations that makes his audience feel. "Hobby" is the song that establishes and declares his sweet spot... his place in between big sounds with catchy drums and melodic effects and delicate and smooth vocal.
"Hobby" is a part of his latest project, "While We Wait," which is truly worth the listen.
