In the years since Reece’s first single Ghost debuted, he signed a publishing deal, moved to LA and briefly NYC, and even had a meeting with super-producer Benny Blanco – only to find himself more lost than he’d ever been. He made his way home to Virginia, pouring his heart out musically, mentally, and physically. This led to musical breakthroughs, an amazing weight loss of over 100lbs, and Reece putting effort who he was as a young man and artist.
Reece recently shared his new single BOY, DON’T CRY. Produced by Trackside.
The song sounds so good. I like the modern pop melodies. Besides, the hooks are impressive. Furthermore, I’m also a fan of the delicate vocals and unique grooves.
Lyrically, Reece delivers. His words are powerful.
Speaking about the track, the artist says: ”This is my first song explicitly discussing my sexuality, and while terrifying, it’s something I felt I had to do. BOY, DON’T CRY is about moving on from an ex who made you feel small, which transcends orientation. I tried to make a song I wish I’d heard growing up.
With so many Black lives still being taken in this country, I wanted to honor our moral obligation of support with actions in my life, and my music. ALL Black lives matter – including LGBTQ+ Black lives. Since June is Pride month, I wanted to support a charity benefiting both groups at once. I will donate my earnings on this song to The Center Of Black Equity – a charity founded in D.C. to help Black members of the LGBTQ+ community thrive in this world.”
Reece’s music connects with people. The song is a gem. It deserves to be heard.
