At The Honey POP!, we’re all about that R&B vibe this year. Who can resist those beautifully delicate vocals layered over serene beats that give you goosebumps? If you can’t get enough of this sound like us, Hojean is the artist you need to know about. His music is a go-to for that perfect R&B fix, weaving the theme of love into a harmonious blend of R&B and nostalgic pop. Luckily, we’ve got three Hojean songs guaranteed to earn a spot on your playlist.
This indie soul gem of a song layers delicate vocals on spacious beats. It makes us feel a sense of nostalgia sprinkled with futuristic vibes (it’ll make sense when you listen.) ‘Cruel’ is a sneak peek from Hojean’s upcoming EP Cherie, which is dropping on September 21st. The track itself crafts his unique musical identity. The stripped-back sound offers ultimate relaxation, and it would be ‘cruel’ not to listen to this song as we ease into his new era.
In contrast, ‘Over 85’ is an energetic track showcasing Hojean’s silky vocals. Lyrically, the song sets the scene of a journey towards a lover, acting as a driving force of excitement in an otherwise seemingly normal life. With a catchy chorus and breezy lyrics like: “gets boring but I know that I will be alright ’cause I’m off in five” creates a relatability with this track. Ultimately, this song is a must-listen – ‘over 85’ times, we’d say!
‘Comin’ Through’ is an uplifting song with beautifully light harmonies featured on a lively, bright beat. Featured on Hojean’s 2022 album Swing, the song captures the excitement of a romantic encounter. It’s about the importance of complete attention and devotion. ‘Comin’ Through’ is the perfect coming-of-age anthem that beautifully conveys the timeless nature of love, even as we all grow older.
Hojean provides all that good stuff, giving us our R&B fix. As we eagerly await the release of Cherie, we can’t help but wonder: Which Hojean songs are your absolute favorites? Share your top picks with us in the comments or tweet us @thehoneypop!
