Bakar and Lancey Foux Bring Energy on ‘Everytime’

Bakar is one of the hottest names in music today. Armed with a genre-straddling swagger, his success has skyrocketed recently.

His refreshing indie rock sound has captivated an R&B audience and reverberated across the Atlantic. Summer Walker, Kenny Beats, and Dominic Fike have all jumped at the chance to collab with the Londoner, but this time, he teams up with Lancey Foux for a hometown hit.

Everytime‘ is a feel-good, vibrant, and high-tempo track. The production feels like an old-school garage tune, with a looped sample and a hyperactive snappy beat.

The pair go back-to-back, sharing a few lines each, which gives the sense of true collaboration and shared energy. The singing-rapping auto-tuned style of Lancey Foux sits in stark contrast to Bakar’s all-natural vocals, but it works. Besides, it’s the ability of Bakar to match the breakneck speed of Foux’s delivery. He is hitting the beat perfectly and not allowing the looped sample to take centre stage.

The duo discusses relapsing into destructive habits and destructive people ‘every time’. This song has all the ingredients for a radio hit, and it’s an easily digestible, fun track. Although I tend to turn to Bakar for his soulful vibes, this is a refreshing change of pace. Furthermore, it is a smart move for an artist who can make this a sing-along festival smash. This song acts as proof to the opinion of many fans that Bakar can really slip into any musical space with ease.

This track has been a long time coming, with it being first previewed via Instagram Live in 2020. Coming off the back of two sold-out nights at the Apollo at the end of last year, it seems like the experimental Brit was waiting for a prime moment for this to drop. In addition, he and Lancey Foux hopped on the coveted ‘On The Radar Freestyle‘, performing the track to secure a viral moment.

I always have respect for artists who aren’t afraid to experiment. Further to this, the artists who aren’t precious with genre rules or cultivating a singular sound for themselves seem to be winning in 2024. In conclusion, give ‘Everytime‘ a listen for a light-hearted summer single and a taste of this artist’s enviable versatility.
