“I can’t watch a man sing a song,” Jerry Seinfeld said way back when.
“What, are you crazy?” Elaine Barnes fired back.
To this day, much of the world stands on the side of Elaine Barnes. Over the years, a collection of artists ranging from Marvin Gaye in the 1970s to Brent Faiyaz in the 2020s have been able to pull in listeners time and time again. As a matter of fact, both Marvin Gaye and Brent Faiyaz are from the same Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C. area. More recently, an artist out of Prince George’s County by the name of Reggie Becton has been pulling out crowds to see him live. Just last year, he delivered shows in Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. before being forced to cancel his show in New York due to COVID-19 precautions. Fortunately, he’s offering a substitute to those who were hoping to see him in New York.
To start the new year, Reggie Becton has teamed up with the folks at We The Culture to deliver a live performance of “Sway” from his forthcoming EP, Sad Boy. Donning the customized “Sad Boy” grills and denim jumpsuit, he floats through the trap swing track just as he did on the “HOM3 Tour” a few months ago.
“It’s different every time we make love/Sway, sway/The way your body swayin’/Sway, sway/The feeling is killing but it’s kind of contagious,” he sings.
“Sway,” “Streets” and “Call” set the stage for Reggie Becton’s forthcoming EP, Sad Boy. While we wait for the project to drop, check out the live edition of “Sway” below.
