Boasting a laid-back, trap/afterhours vibe, ‘Only’ is about experiencing that first love and how it can fade away without having any real closure.
Speaking of his new release, Dorian says: “I wrote this song as a goodbye to mine as I’m pretty sure I’ll never see them again. I didn’t really get the closure I would have liked so ‘Only’ is my closure. Don’t get it twisted, I’ve moved on years ago but this song tells a key part of my life story and needed to be released to the world. That’s just how i want all my proceeding work to be – Journalistic, personal yet relatable material.”
‘Only’ was supposed to be included in his debut album ‘The Come Up’ (check out the album and review here.) Dorian explains: “I felt like ‘Only’ didn’t fit among the others as it has a whole different instrumental for it.”
Out today on all major download and streaming sites, ‘Only’ marks the beginning of Dorison’s shift from his ‘hip-hop/Rnb’ combo to something more sensual and soulful. So keep your eye on this serious contender as he releases more material throughout the year.
