New Jersey-born and Atlanta-based artist Russ is back with a breezy and heartfelt new single, "Can't Get This Right." However, this track feels less like a new drop and more like business as usual for the rapper: a quality track every couple of weeks. Moreover, his last single was "PUT YOU ON GAME" just a few weeks ago, a hyped and boastful trap cut. He put out a load of singles last year, each with similar art styles but with pretty varied sonic pallets. Whether he's working towards a compilation project or just dropping what he feels, his fans are well-fed.
Furthermore, "Can't Get This Right" is a melodic, emotive, and classic-sounding effort from the 30-year-old. While the track is about a relationship coming to an end despite both sides' efforts, it's not really a downer. For example, the high-pitched vocal samples in the background give the track a positive, chipmunk-soul energy. Also, the crisp and steady R&B beat will make you bob your head regardless of whether you relate to the heartbroken lyrics. In terms of Russ's performance, he maintains a light and confident middle register as he switches between the sung chorus and melodic verses. Still, it contrasts his expressions and reflections on this track, indicating a painful and yearning end to a crumbling relationship.
While the rapper acknowledges that something needs to change in him and his partner, he realizes they can't grow together.

We both know what to do, but pride is in the way-way
We both obsessed with bein' right, can't walk away-way
And everytime wе fight, we question the rеlationship
We don't know if we makin' it, it feels like ain't no savin' it
