Who is Preston Harris and how long has the San Diego native been making hits for?
Harris is a singer/songwriter currently signed to Hit-Boy's 'HS87' label and quite frankly I fully see the vision in why the 'Ni**as In Paris (Kanye West/Jay-Z) & Trophies (Drake)' producer had to get this particular signature from pen to paper.
With his debut EP: Love Crazy, being dropped earlier this year in February, I feel like this has shined a bight light at the end of the tunnel for us (day 1's) R&B fans who have been waiting for a project of this calibre to present itself for some time now. Don't get me wrong, what we have on the scene is great, with the PARTYNEXTDOOR's and the futuristic Rhythm & Blues sound, whether its a Timberlake comeback, or a Justin Bieber crossfade into the genre, but for me, Preston Harris has a Frank Ocean feel to his music and let me tell you why.
Not many would have the chance to have their first project executive produced by Hit-Boy, so instantly he's already put himself in the running for the highest of production quality, which he demonstrates with such smooth joints and a few of my personal favourites 'Iloveyou' , 'Love Crazy' , 'Hummingbird' & 'Good Morning', which means that for those of you who click on the image below you'll understand that I Evidently got lost in the first 4 tracks.
I can't lie, I was a gassed when I discovered him one night browsing through Soundcloud as his vocal structure clearly shows his revision in the R&B field is extensive, with beautifully performed melodies, harmonies and ad-libs throughout as he does it how it should be done paying homage to the greats.
