After years of diligently collaborating within the Chicago music community, Knox Fortune has put forth a new solo single that’s both infectious and intriguing. The man behind the hook in Chance The Rapper’s “All Night” and the production for Vic Mensa and Joey Purp is charming listeners with a whirlpool of genres on his new song, “Help Myself.”
A guitar-based track with an atypical crash of instrumentation, the song spreads its forlorn message across bubbling beats and a heavy hitting chorus. Knox captures the sweetness of the little parts of romance and the stinging feeling of their absence with a youthful swagger. The song sinks into its playfully spurting verses but really hits home as it sweeps into the violin-swirled bridge. There’s much more to come from Knox Fortune this year, and it’s bound to be equally as irresistible.
