James Gardin gets vulnerable on “Black Boy Blush”

James Gardin Black Boy Blush

Black Boy Blush is a front runner for one of our favorite singles of 2017. James Gardin and Ess Be have outdone themselves on this one. The single released last week via Illect Recordings and gets heavy recommendation.

In the current era of rap where being vulnerable is more more in style, Black Boy Blush is a song in that same vein. James Gardin teams up with fellow Michigan creative EssBe to compose a musical display of the butterflies in the stomach that one feels when they’ve met the one. Society makes us feel like women are the only one’s who are shy, woo’d or charmed in romantic pursuits, but sometimes the roles can change.

Black Boy Blush is filled with humor, black love, and melodies over house inspired production by EssBe that dances around like your emotions do when you’re with that special person.
