SOTD: I Can’t Stay – Jesse Boykins III

Song: I Can’t Stay
Artist: Jesse Boykins III
Album: Way Of A Wayfarer
Genre: Hip-Hop/Neo-Soul
Artist: When it comes to voices, Jesse Boykins has a distinct one that cannot be mistaken for anyone else’s. The Beauty Created was an enthralling debut rich with all-natural extracts, making it hard to follow up, but the Wayfarer EP promises of a grander sound. “I Can’t Stay” has a sound more progressive than that found on his debut, leaving listeners wanting more while whetting their appetites for the upcoming full-set release.
