Listen To Johnny Drille’s New Single ‘Something Better’

It’s been six months since we got any music from our beloved alternative sensation Johnny Drille. But to our delight, this self-imposed hiatus has come to an end as he has released a new single, to uplift and “distract us from the madness” titled ‘Something Better’. For this new record, his first single since his stirring celebration of love on ‘Count On You’ he teams up with EDM beatsmith, Sigag Lauren who produced the uptempo single.

In ‘Something Better’ Johnny Drille is very honest to himself and his love interest that he has issues being committed in relationships. In fact, the record opens with a soundbite of a conversation between two women that confirm Johnny is a player. But there is something different this time: he is truly and deeply in love with her.

He repeatedly tries to warn her off that he might not be the best for her. But he is also helpless as finds himself running back to her love, one which is strong enough for him to backtrack and change his ways from a player to a “something better guy.”

Enjoy the record above.

All through the year, the Mavin Records signee has been steady with his releases as well as freestyles which he shares periodically on his social media pages.

As implied by the title, the song finds the folk singer appreciating his dad and crooning about his spirituality spurred and serviced by his father. Backed mainly by stifling strings and solemn keys, Johnny Drille opens the record by recounting the fatherly advice he was given when he was much younger to have his life guided and guarded by faith and prayers. He then describes how his father keeps in touch with him regularly and reminds him not to let go of his spirituality in the strange land he currently finds himself.
