New York-based RnB artist Xavier White releases new EP Love Questions today. Staying true to his musical roots, Xavier showcases his vocal range and stylistic choices in the six-track EP. The lyrics cover topics ranging from love and lust to insecurities faced in a relationship. The title track “Love Questions” is a slowed down, emotional inquiry into the inner workings of love and catching feelings. It encapsulates Xavier’s laid back approach and youthful energy. “Say My Name”, a track previously released as a single, features a slower start with eclectic sounds that build up to a beat drop which encourages listeners to move along with the music. The track offers listeners an opportunity to connect to the feeling of needing reassurance and for someone to prove their love
Comparisons can be drawn between Xavier’s style and artists such as Khalid, Cautious Clay, and others who have mastered the combination of electronic background beats and RnB vocals. However, Xavier is in a league of his own when it comes to tying together all aspects of the song and creating a culmination of his artistic abilities.
