Chris Rivers | In The Morning
It's been a minute since Hiphop had a great love song, so New York's Chris Rivers decided to be the one to deliver it. In The Morning is a smoothed out Hiphop celebration of sunshine pouring in on you and your lover in at the start of the day. It's a reminder that the best moments aren't in the club, or the streets, but at home when you wake up next to the dream who helps you build everything worth having in life. "In the morning I would say is my first love song. You know that moment when the sun piercing through your window, cascading over you, waking you up and the first thing you see is the sun-kissed face of the person you love right across from you? Some of you haven’t, I get it, but I have and I wanted to encapsulate that moment, keep it in front of me, and make it last forever. Because life isn’t always this perfect, this simple, this beautiful, and if I can trap that moment in time, then maybe I can exist in it for as long as possible. And that’s what In The Morning is about. Taking that one moment and everything that goes with it. Taking a lifetime of love and wanting it to last forever. Even tho it never will." - Chris Rivers The new album Chris River's G.I.T.U. is out August 16th on Mello Music Group. Album Pre-Orders | smarturl.it/GITU
