Last month, we brought you Brooklyn-based artist Gabriel Garzon-Montano's single "Sour Mango," a love story gone wrong. The talented Drake-sampled artist has followed up that release with "The Game," a contemplative but affirming ode to social pressure. Here's what the singer-songwriter told Fader about the release:
"We all play the game. We can make the best of it and we can make the worst of it. I wrote this as a reminder not to take myself so seriously. It's easy to grow solemn and boring! This song says be brave and show your joy and give your love. Have a heart like a tangerine. You don't have to lose the game."
Listen and let us know what you think. Does it rock you real slowly?
Do you worry about everything?
Afraid you ain't got the tight game?
Do you feel just a little too plain?
You compare yourself to what's his name
