Gleewos is the professional name of emerging Hip-Hop/R&B artist, Jonathan Marcel. Born and raised in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti, the 22 year-old singer made his debut in 2020 with the single “Huh?” Since then, the prolific artist has produced a steady string of successful singles reaching thousands of fans worldwide on multiple platforms. Now he has dropped his debut 5-song EP. “GENE$I$” was released worldwide to all major streaming services on May 28, 2021.
“Come” is the lead single from the new record. The song is a soulful and sexy invitation for an unnamed lady to join the singer in his home for the evening. The track opens with a mellow electric piano intro for a chill R&B vibe. Shortly the beat drops and we slide into a smooth Caribbean groove.
At the mixing board is acclaimed Haitian record producer, Egar Boi. He lays down a great summertime vibe perfect for top-down oceanside cruises and late night beach party bonfires. The producer peppers the mix with some really tasteful vocal harmonies, expertly executed by Gleewos who is in top form throughout the track. The clean ensemble arrangement of bass, keys and drums leaves plenty of room for the singer to deliver his sultry proposition, “Baby, just come into my home.”
