Eternia & Rel McCoy - FREE (Album)
By: Fat Beats
It's easy to hear just what she means on standout singles like the warm and nostalgic "Most PPL" and moody and haunting "Home," the latter of which features fellow Canadian talents Shad and SHEAL. These are lyrically rich, profound tracks that are both easy to follow but brimming with layers, effortlessly walking us through complex themes with straight-shooting simplicity as only veterans can do. From Eternia's attention-grabbing vocals to Rel's nostalgic and melodic blend of boom bap production, FREE is just as engaging as it is organic.
Rel big-ups his collaborator for why the record sounds like it does. "She has an excellent ear and knows what she's looking for when she has a song concept in mind," he says.
Speaking of concepts, there are almost too many dope ones on FREE to name. But perhaps the most gripping is "The Story of Us," one of two collaborations with her husband, Mr. Lif (the other track being "Secret"). The track outlines how the two met, fell in love, and became a family, and it boasts heavenly vocals from Eliki on the hook.
Beyond the singles, Eternia just wants her listeners to emotionally connect with FREE. "I hope people take the whole record in," she says. "But even if they just take in a song here and there, I hope it leaves them feeling—ANY feeling." For the hip-hop world at-large, there's certainly a feeling of appreciation, and the hope we don't have to wait another decade for more fire from Eternia.
