In his debut album, Daniel Caesar provided music that was highly impressive. His single “Get Out” received acclaim and created stir around this well overdue album. It was refreshing to see an independent star get signed and rise to stardom.

Caesar is a Canadian artist who acquired fame through releasing independent EPs or Extended Playlist. His album incompasses his ability to make music as a lone star as well as the capability to combine sounds with various artists  to make amazing music.

His smooth and soulful style resonates throughout his entire album as he discusses love, life and lust. His lyricism connects further than just a surface level understanding, but examines relatable topics as well.

Love is the general theme throughout the entire album, and each song somehow finds it’s way back to it. Artists with similar styles found their way onto this album and enhanced it beyond anything I could’ve anticipated.

Caesar connected with rising star H.E.R on the second song of the album “Best Part.” Together, they create a sound that is so soulful, so beautiful and so expressive. This collaboration was the union we didn’t know we needed.

Lyrics such as “You’re the coffee that I need in the morning, you’re my sunshine in the rain when it’s pouring” help to express why a significant other could be the “Best Part” of any situation.

Love bares more than just a definition, but an undeniable and unforgettable forging of persons that throw people through a rollercoaster of almost inescapable emotions that seem to superseded by love.

Caesar converses about his individuality in “Transform.” He mentions that he is incapable of being anything but true to himself. Despite industry standards and societal norms, Caesar maintains himself.

The line “if a leopard never changes its spots, how can I change what I’ve got,” exemplifies how Caesar recognizes that he can’t change himself. He decides to embrace what he is and this is exactly what makes him so unique.

Any solid soulful album has to contain at least one song pertaining to lust. Caesar manages to combine love and lust into “Take Me Away.” Syd adds her flawless vocals over a very melancholic beat to create a song that fits perfectly into any cliche intimate movie scene.

Caesar brought all he could offer to this album with him.

His great choices in featuring artists as well as his untouchable vocals have excited me as a fan for his future products. If this level of music persists, Caesar has a long future in music ahead of him.
