R&B supernova Blxst is back with a single sure to pull at your heartstrings. A powerful tribute to loved ones who have passed, he braves the difficult topic of grief in ‘Heart Ain’t Empty’.
Blxst has generated well-deserved critical acclaim for his musical versatility and vulnerability. He gained notoriety through his addictive melodies, hooks, and smooth vocals. This being said he has differentiated himself from his male R&B peers. He’s unafraid to show all his cards and bear his all on a track. He cuts through the noise because his lyrics feel genuine. New fans listen for the energy and catchy nature of his music but stay for the depth of meaning behind these songs.
On ‘Heart Ain’t Empty’, Blxst puts into words the inexplicable heartbreak he’s suffered from losing loved ones. He also speaks of regret and feeling divided between his commitments to music and family. The first verse appears to be dedicated to his late friend Gello. The second verse discusses his sister, and how despite her losses she remains strong. He shares a rare message in this song – all the money in the world can’t heal deep pain.
This song is a cathartic listen, one to spark memories and healing. Although this has all the ingredients of the Blxst formula that has garnered so much success, this feels like a new chapter for him. Blxst has cemented himself as an indispensable voice of honesty in today’s R&B scene.
