While I will never dare to call myself a music connoisseur, I’d like to think I’d know a masterpiece when I hear one. Case in point: Sam Kim’s live version of his latest track, Make Up.
Released November 22nd, Sam gifts us with 8 spectacular songs from his latest album: Sun and Moon.
Make Up had some jazz motifs like the other tracks, but it stands out in its softer feel with some Stevie Wonder-esque vibe thrown in. It was a masterful collaboration between Sam’s flowy R&B and Crush’s signature cool sweetness.
While the track is already a gem as it is, the live performance made it shine all the more:
The smoothness of the usual “Sam Groove” was toned down for a kind of roughness that lent the whole song the authenticity I’ve always heard from Sam.
There was a raw edge to his voice made it sound so honest I could almost hear my (non–existent) beau begging me to make up – well, if said beau could beg with perfect pitch.
Tap on the video to watch the performance in all its magnificence.
