denouement

you know that feeling when you've had a really good thing, but you know it has to end? it's like if life were a really good movie its the part where you know the end credits are coming and you get kinda sad that you have to leave the theatre. i wrote this song a long time ago right after adam sent me the beat, the hook came immediately and the intro took a bit longer but i was stuck for a verse. sent it to jacob some weeks after and he loved the idea, and expanded the meaning and depth of the song - he killed it. fun fact i almost didn't release it cuz i had listened to it so much and started hating it.

sanguine

Dear [redacted],

Yes I know that sanguine is an adjective and is pronounced "san-gwin". But if it were a noun, it would be the perfect noun to describe who you are to me. No better words can be used to describe the way you gave me hope in love again, something I was certain was dead. Although I can't exactly say I love you yet (I met you last week), I know I want to learn how to love you and i'm ready to nurture a relationship that will last forever. From all the times I've gotten my heart broken and the times i've hurt other people, I learned the best way to nurture a long lasting relationship is taking things slow despite how fast we may feel like going. If that's okay with you, let's start this journey of the rest of our lives.

Love,
Lil Seyi

westside

Greeted by the rumbling of tom drums turned into a baseline, we enter into the world of westside. We know nothing about the world we're listening in on until an un-named character starts speaking/singing. He appears to be living his best life, chasing dreams and things that make him feel good, but deep down he knows something is wrong. He starts to question everything, questions initially surrounding why he can't do what feels good but those questions quickly turn into an interrogation about the character of this so called "higher-power" in control of the world. Us listeners can hear an explanation given by someone "guided" to answer these questions, but it seems like they fall on deaf ears because it wasn't the answer they wanted to hear. The song ends kind of getting nowhere. This person continues to question God while not listening to the people he uses to answer our questions and so he is trapped in a cycle of frustration.

deciduous

ok so let's get this straight. deciduous is the name of the 2-song project, but it is also the name of the first song on the project... are you following? Ok, so, the second song on the project is evergreen, the more popular song. you kinda need to listen to both songs to get the full picture, but evergreen has a recap in the beginning so not really. i was really just lying in my bed one day and thought why do some trees have leaves in the winter and others don't. i looked it up and found it so poetic how it kind of paralleled my relationship with god, soooo i wrote 2 songs about it and here we are.

the trilogy

my label put myself and my management in contact with bryan hahn - writer, director, producer, visionary. we hopped on multiple calls and all the ideas that came out were golden. we finally settled on the idea of a 3 part story of a relationship where there is a first date, honeymoon phase, and then the downhill-ish part and we played around with the ordering of the different clips. we shot everything in brooklyn in about 2 days i think and went wayy over budget so yeah. Shout out everyone that made it possible and made it a fun experience, hope you enjoy.
