If there’s one thing we have always been able to count on LEONE for, it’s noteworthy music. Now, we’ve had our eyes on lead singer Richie Bee Leone since his previous group, DEITRE. And LEONE’s last EP had us like putty in his hands. Their newest single ‘Kiss ‘Em Bye Bye’ has already joined our list of “Single Honeybee Summer” playlist picks. And it’s about to join yours too!
‘Kiss ‘Em Bye Bye’ is the start of something beautiful, serving as the first release from their upcoming EP, GTFOH. It’s safe to say it’s only built our anticipation more. Talking about the upcoming EP, LEONE has said that it’s truly a piece about reclaiming your power. Hoping that maybe this EP can help serve as some form of reminder to his listeners to stand up for themselves. GTFOH promises to have us in a pool of our own emotions.
Can We Get Some Pens In The Chat Please?
We have to take a moment to talk about the lyricism within ‘Kiss ‘Em Bye Bye’ as well. The opening line starts off on a stellar level with, “It had hit like a ton, like a loaded gun, weighted in denial.” Our jaws are already on the floor. The flawless picture painting continues throughout the track as you close out that chorus with, “But say goodbye to my lips, The ones you’re gonna miss, As I walk off and leave you behind, Now kiss ’em bye-bye.” The track continues to illustrate a toxic relationship where you tried your best to see the good in someone who simply had nothing good within them. The empowering build-up of the track is like the push of encouragement you need to truly leave a situation like that as well.
