Follows Release of Debut “lemonade”
After making his Geffen Records and PFL debut with “Lemonade” Karri bounces back with a second serving of sweet melodies for his newest release, “can u?” Continuing his streak as one of the most exciting new voices in contemporary music, the 20-year-old Flipino American singer/songwriter uses his passionate lyrics to gently tug away at the heartstrings of his listeners as he looks to secure a permanent romance. “Girl, you know my love is so hard to give,” he chants on the poignant hook. Back by a ‘90s soundscape, Karri’s latest song is produced by Clockwork and Tommy Parker, with additional production from himself.
Like his previous tracks, Karri gifts his fans a trio of releases for “can u?” including the main song, a sped-up “Hi N Fly” version, and a chopped and screwed iteration titled “Lo N Slo.”
Karri has quietly made a name for himself with his “Lo’ N Slo’” brand of R&B. He cites Drake, The-Dream, and Sampha as influences. In early 2023, the San Francisco native released “3AM in Oakland,” which quickly went viral on Tik Tok and Instagram Reels, rapidly expanding the artist’s fan base and capturing the industry’s attention. With the release of “lemonade” and now “can u?” Karri’s lovestruck lyrics makes him a guaranteed artist to watch in the R&B space.
