Maddy Suppez – “Art of Healing” (feat. Justice Gbada)


A soulful, chilled-out hip-hop production enamors on “Art of Healing,” a new track from Maddy Suppez — artfully exuding the impact of a breakup and its non-linear healing process. Suppez and collaborator Justice Gbada provide suavely impactful vocal deliveries, culminating in an anesthetic title-touting refrain.

Airy vocal expressions meander alongside subtle rhythms to start, expanding upon Suppez’ precise vocal flow. “Even though I walk through hell and backwards, I’m surrounded by angels,” Suppez lets out, entrancing amidst the hypnotic bass line and steady percussion. An uptick in vocal emotion upon the title-referencing sequence sends chills, easing into an equally debonair vocal showing from Justice Gbada. Both vocalists stir alongside a serenely intoxicating beat, providing introspective immersion throughout the riveting “Art of Healing.”

The artist elaborates on the track: “This song is inspired by going through the ups and downs on the spiritual journey, understanding that healing is not linear, it is a slow process at times.”

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of September 2023’ Spotify playlist.

We discovered this release via MusoSoup, as part of the artist’s promotional campaign.
