Just like Billie Eilish came into the female pop world sort of left of center and ready to take over the world, R&B Future Crooner Sam Setton is about to shake up the male pop world. With his first release, “Santiago,” you’d want to categorize him with the likes of artists like Lauv and Timberlake — but with his newest single, “Wine,” set to release this Friday — this takes Sam to a whole other level.
The song features next-level production, swiftly taking us into a post-skrillex era of electronic production that combines melodic songwriting with big hooks and big drops. His crooner-esque voice is so smooth, it’s likely what modern-day Timberlake wishes he could sound like — sorry, JT.
Sam says, “‘Wine’ is a song inspired by the on and off relationship I had with a college ex girlfriend. We’d get into these small fights and all we would do was drink and smoke to avoid confrontation. Eventually, I told her I loved her for the first time and we made up. I intended for this track to be a sort of anthem for toxic relationships and confronting your problems head on.”
