Sophie Fay – “Only1” (feat. Mighty Da Don)


“Only1” is a chilled-out pop track with R&B, hip-hop, and electro feels, a thorough success for the NYC-based Sophie Fay. The track begins with a mellow, nocturnal synth-laden shimmer, with Fay’s vocals opening to give way to Mighty Da Don, whose chill soul/hip-hop presence plays well amidst the serene beat. Fay’s vocals re-emerge past the one-minute mark, regaining as a consuming force throughout. Hypnotic and melodic, “Only1” has ample replay value.

Sophie elaborates on the track: “Only1 might seem like another love song at first, but there’s more to it. Even though Mighty is sort of trying to bring his girl back, I’m more in a playful mood and I don’t even mean what I say. I just want to have some fun and “clear my mind” from all the pressure and anxiety. When writing the song I was really inspired by ASAP Rocky’s Pain cuz it’s one of my favs. The vibe is hidden in the music itself.”

“Only1” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of April 2019’ Spotify playlist.
