SINGLE Review: 'Less Than Lovers' - XO
XO is a Midlands-based R&B artist who had a smash hit earlier this year with 'Shut It Down' and has now released 'Less Than Lovers'.
It's a modern, refreshing R&B track, with a seductive side.
The chorus is catchy and infectious.
“Less than lovers but more than friends, that’s the only way this makes sense…, " XO is honest about his intentions. "You and I know the situation, baby".
The vocals are mesmerising and layered over guitars, a punchy bassline and an Indian vocal sample. In this way, he fuses both eastern and western influences.
At only 24, he has received praise and support from A-listers such as Diplo, Tyga & Majid Jordan - and it's easy to see why!
