Skizzy Mars and JoJo Strike Up the Realest Romance on ‘Recognize’
After years of releasing mixtapes and EPs, Harlem-bred star on the rise Skizzy Mars is now just one week away from touching down with his debut album, Alone Together, out April 8.
"Baby, if I tell you what I want, don't call me crazy / If I tell you I'm in love, no I ain't playing," she melodically croons across the swoon-filled, seasonally appropriate Michael Keenan and P-Lo-produced cut.
Skizzy's equally smitten: "I love it when we in the club / I love it more when we in the bed / I coulda wrote you a love letter, but I wrote you a song instead," he fires back. That kind of bluntness, much like the production itself, is refreshing.
Buoyed by warm, hazy synths and sexy guitar licks, the feel-good track plays like a springtime or summer sleeper radio hit in the making.
"I hope you recognize a real one when you see one," JoJo urges throughout. A reasonable request, considering JoJo is, in fact, the realest one of them all.
