IN YOUR CITY MUSIC: NASHVILLE
It is what it is, what it is but it'll never be forever, and that's just how it is on K.O.N's freshly released drop, Forever.
K.O.N's vibe of satisfyingly simplistic meets with a message that is realistic.
It goes like: everything is temporary, life is full of changes, adaptability is required and this too shall pass with everything else in between, and it's produced by Brokebewoy with K.O.N adding his touch during the process.
Forever comes with all the trimmings by Brokebewoy, jazzy trumpets, mellow piano tones and a touch of cosmic aura that are all entwined with the classic motto of life - it is what it is, delivered by K.O.N.
"After not dropping any music for about half a year, I felt I definitely owed my supporters some kind of music.
Since I’d dropped Pastel in February, I’d put a lot of my focus into finishing school. I felt school was taking a lot of time and energy from music so I needed to go ahead and wrap it up. By the grace of god, I was able to finish in May. When I found the beat in June, before i even wrote the lyrics, I knew this would be the next single I dropped.
It was long overdue" - K.O.N.
K.O.N seals his track Forever with his distinctive flow, unbothered tone and adroit lyrics that'll have you doing a double take.
"Forever is just a depiction of my life this past year, wrapped up in a bunch of metaphors. I’ve definitely been blessed but this year has been pretty rough. The main idea of the song is that everything is temporary. The highest points, lowest points, women, money, and circumstances are all temporary. A lot of the times we can feel so trapped in the present and in the pity that we have for ourselves that we forget that our circumstances are temporary, and that we’re still in control. But at the same time I wanted it to vibe" - K.O.N.
Currently working on another body of work, K.O.N has a few upcoming surprises before it releases, along with potential visuals for his day one fans to enjoy.
Until then, keep Forever in your rotation and remember that 'it is what it is, what it is, but it'll never be forever'.
