Softer Still: Intend’s “Kyu Ji”

Intend keeps things soft on “Kyu Ji,” but doesn’t get too quiet over the course of the song. This number, featuring a sparse piano-accented beat, approaches whisper rap, but the MC at the center of it makes sure to prop up her words with a blast of energy to avoid letting it get overly sleepy. While the space afforded by the production goes a long way to making the song work, it’s the energetic but not over-the-top delivery that really seals it. Listen above.
