“Guru” is a chill r&b song with a dreamy soundscape that is perfect for a picnic on a sunny day. The musical production is very stellar and transports listeners to a different place. The beautiful keyboard melodies and otherworldly synths create a chill and soothing atmosphere, while the drums give the track a solid rhythm.
The artist, Ladi6, gives a sweet, laidback vocal performance that capitalizes on the dreamlike instrumental. Also, the song’s theme is absolutely touching as Ladi6 sings about feeding your spiritual side and following your dreams while fighting fear.
“If you hear it calling / Starve the fear feed the faith and ride / And ride”
Ladi6’s message resonates with me heavily. We are all dealing with our versions of fear that paralyze us or lead us to make bad decisions. So, feeding our faith throughout our lives is important to help us enjoy our time here; whether that be through religion, meditation, etc.
Overall, Guru is a beautiful r&b experience with a dreamy soundscape and an inspirational message. This is the perfect song to play on a picnic with the sounds of nature in the background.
