American hip-hop artist iLoveMakonnen recently released his latest instalment from the Drink More Water mixtapes, Drink More Water 6, also containing tunes ‘Sellin’ and ‘Live for Real’. Now, in his latest offering ‘Back Again’, the 26 year-old delivers a tune that sees himself delve back into his earlier demo-sounding roots.
‘Back Again’ sees Makonnen experiment with loss and infatuation. “You say that you don’t need me but I know that you need me/ You feeling kinda greedy ” he croons. The visually simplistic video accompanying the track is equally as brooding. Murky air, shadowing and a dark aesthetic surround, and almost confine, Makonnen.
