Lais' new song, "Consequence," is smooth and confident, walking the fine line between arrogance and self-assurance. The lyrics are like a slowed-down, hip-hop version of Steve Monite's "Only You," where the lyrics don't present the perspective of the singer, but rather of someone looking back at him with longing (see also Abba's "The Winner Takes It All"). Within this conceit there's plenty of room for fun wordplay and Lais makes the most of it.
This song is the first single off of Lais' upcoming album SESSIION, which comes out in only 5 days, on September 21st. It will be Lais' first album since 2017's Give Me One More. The Toronto artist has been around for some time now, keeping up a consistent output of stylish R&B, so this album looks like it may be the project to nudge him over the edge into the more mainstream popularity. Get in on the ground floor:
Gucci coat and Fendi shoes
Fingers still got residue
She say all you want is all of me
but you'll never say you're mine
Lais, I just want the rest of you.
