Jordan Rivers – Let Me In [Audio]

Toronto, ON – Toronto up-and-comer Jordan Rivers just released a new track on us entitled “Let Me In.” Holy damn diggity – this is some suave cloud rap R&B ish.

Jordan takes a genre-bending approach and bodies that new wave sound by combining soulful R&B vocals with slow rap delivery. And through it all, he invokes all of the lonely lovey dovey feels as he makes a plea for his girl to let him in.

This is a commentary on those one-sided relationships where one person is way more emotionally invested in it all than the other. In this instance, Jordan is the one who’s head-over-heels and he’s begging for some reciprocation: “I can’t grasp it/ Why you’re so attractive/ My life/ You impact it/ Helped me grow in areas where I lacked it.” On the real, though: I hope bae hears this song and lets Jordan Rivers in because dude just spilled his heart on this track.

Side note: One thing I love about this track is that the feeling behind it all is so universal; it’s more than just a love song. There are so many times when we’re overcome with that need for an “in.”

Whether you’re an up-and-comer trying to get a foot in-the-door of the rap game, or a Toronto MC named Jordan Rivers who’s found himself catching the feels for someone who’s emotionally unavailable, the need to get “in” remains the same. I feel this 100%.
