In 2018, after taking a considerable step away from his previous Christian Hip-Hop subgenre, John Givez issued in the arrival of a more R&B-centric sound as the West Coast emcee turned to more melodic deliveries over nostalgic soundscapes to make for solid showings with his "2 Steppin" and "I'm Workin" singles.
Now to properly close things out, Givez has delivered on his full-length EP To Jalisa. Taking on a more thematic approach, the EP spans a radio segment in which a host delivers on a ride through John Givez's selected catalog while taking the occasional stop for light commentary and calls from listeners on the topic of love, the project's focal point.
To Jalisa proves to be an effective transition for John Givez and quietly point towards a talented voice still finding its footing. Listen now.
