This time he recruits New Orleans based rapper Pell who brings an infectious energy to the chopping block. An amalgamation of house, rap and pop brings out the best in the versatile Young Franco.
‘Juice’ acts as a perfect refresher of Young Franco’s concise musical abilities. The seasoned producer recruits a 4 to the floor drum beat to hold down the back end of the track. With it combines glitchy piano synths, building tension towards an infectious hook. The bass line rumbles stronger here, as a repetitive, pop conscious chorus rings.
