Chicago emcee Rockie Fresh is prepping the release of his debut album Destination after signing a multi-year deal with Rostrum Records. To commemorate the forthcoming release, Rockie has released the latest single from the project — an R&B heavy bop entitled “Maria.”
Reminiscent of much of hip-hop’s sound from the early 2000s, the bass-heavy track employs a hefty amount of bounce. Rockie croons over the instrumental as he expresses his love for a girl named Maria, lacing auto-tuned vocals against hefty verses that employ the rapper’s traditional sound. The track is much more commercially in-line than what Rockie has previously put out, a sign that he’s brought out the big guns for his debut album.
