It’s been a little while since UK rapper Tinchy Stryder released a new album, almost five years in fact, his legions of fans have been missing him greatly; two promotional singles for 360° were released mid-last year, but Stryder has followed them up with his current single Imperfection. Let’s hear what he’s been up to lately.
The synths introduce the track nicely, promptly accompanied by Fuse’s chorus and the persistent beat, Imperfection is already shaping up to be what you want out of a mainstream track; it has repetitiveness, a catchiness and it lingers in your head after the first listen. Tinchy drops rhymes about giving up the endless cycles of break ups and ‘me time’, wanting to finally settle down with a girl despite his imperfections, an endearing concept that other rappers could consider adopting; this track isn’t revolutionary, but it’s still a decent listen.
Imperfection is an enjoyable single release from Tinchy Stryder, it has enough energy to spark enthusiasm for his upcoming fourth album and you can’t get it out of your head; Fuse proved to be a suitable collaborator, he had just as much of a part to play in terms of where this track could go and went. If you’re looking for a catchy song that isn’t so groundbreaking that it alienates you, give Imperfection a few listens and enjoy it.
