Joyner Lucas is back with his latest single and visual to “Fall Slowly.” ft. Ashanti. Preparing us for his forthcoming album, Evolution, that is set to release on Friday, September 18. The six-song project includes featured artists The Game and Rick Ross.
Ashanti plays the sultry love interest. And saying things get intense would be an understatement. The song, which arrived on digital platforms Sepetember 2, along with accompanying visuals, is a passionate but toxic love story about the ups and downs of the pair’s tumultuous relationship.
“You know the vibes we on, be like some movie sh*t / And we don’t always get along, but when we do we lit / I never understood love or what it truly is, until I met you / Now we just inseparable until we trip,” Lucas raps in the first verse.
“And every time you try to leave I’m chasin’ after you / And every time I go, I keep on comin’ back to you / ‘Cause you belong to me, and I’m the other half of you / And as much as I need you, deep down I know I’m bad for you / You know I’m bad for you,” Joyner Lucas raps. “Fallin’ slowly, fallin’ slowly / Fallin’ slowly, fallin’ slowly,” Ashanti sings in the chorus.
In the music video, things escalate from verbal arguments to physical altercations between the couple. And the ugliest parts of their partnership is put on full display. Just as well as the inlove enegry and cuddly parts. The visuals vividly depict the thin line between the happiness and the destruction. As the two artists remained committed to their characters.
Make-out scenes in the shower quickly turn to fights in the street, and before you know it, Joyner Lucas is arrested for domestic abuse while Ashanti finds out that she is carrying his child. It’s really toxicity at its most severe, and the song lyrics accurately blend just that in this video.
