New Music: Adrian Marcel – The Way

Adrian Marcel meshes 90’s R&B with modern influences on his brand new single “The Way”. Although the verses in the song are sung in a trendy fashion, the chorus from the song contains a subtle interpolation of “I Like the Way (The Kissing Game)” by Hi-Five. This is the follow up to previous single “Slow Burn”, which we’ve touted among our favorite songs we’ve heard this year.

Both of the new songs are part of a new era of music for Adrian Marcel. He’s a completely independent artist since recently leaving Republic Records. The Raphael Saadiq protege has started his own label Third Voice Music where he will release his own music going forward. In addition, Adrian Marcel is executive producing his upcoming sophomore album “98th” which he expects to release soon. This is the follow up to his debut “GMFU” which released back in 2017.
