AUDIO: MXY – “Mind, Body And Soul”
It’s not every day that MXY releases a track like ‘Mind, Body, and Soul.’ If you ask us to put it on a shelf, we’ll struggle. Furthermore, MXY forges a new path for herself, and her mix of popular genres keeps her relevant while still allowing her to stand on her own two feet.
‘Mind, Body, and Soul’ begins differently than many other tracks in the genre. Furthermore, an extended overture in hip-hop is familiar, but MXY defies expectations and dives right in, almost as if she is halfway through the performance. The beat and synth instrumental appear unexpectedly, almost catching us off guide at first. MXY quickly joins in with the music, giving a raw yet passionate performance.
One thing that distinguishes MXY is that she does not falsify her accent, as many other artists can often do in the same environment. She stays faithful to her hometown of Bradford, which will give her a unique edge over her contemporaries. It is impressive if you are familiar with the Yorkshire twang. However, if you are unfamiliar with the Yorkshire lingo, you may find it challenging to grasp her wordplay.
Overall, ‘Mind, Body, and Soul’ raises the bar. Also, it proves that MXY is one of very few artists who can deliver something quite as unique as this one. Furthermore, she inspires other artists, and given her recent success, it will come as no surprise if others follow in her footsteps.
