The singer’s first release since his 2021 debut EP ‘colors, vol. 1’, Sam Loid’s ‘Bounce’ entertains listeners with its astral-peppy beat and discusses the importance of overcoming life’s challenges and recovering after hardships.
“Bounce is about going with the flow and not letting life keep you down,” says Loid. “I personally have had a lot of changes happen in my life, and while I was recording this project, I wanted to write particularly to newer, more exhilarating sounds. The moment I heard the beat I knew this was what I was looking for.”
Sam Loid’s first EP, ‘colors, vol. 1’ featured two fantastic lead singles, “Wasted Time” and “BNT”, each of which was featured on Apple Music’s official ‘New in R&B Playlist.’ His other hit single, “Green” received similar praise and was even featured on the Spotify official ‘Fresh Finds’ and ‘Fresh Finds: The Wave’ playlists.
Influenced by R&B Powerhouses like Marvin Gaye, Pharrell, and Luther Vandross, the singer/songwriter’s honest, familiar, and heartfelt sound expands the full spectrum of R&B music — from 808-driven uptempo records to mellow, acoustic guitar-laden sonics.
