This song pulls you in from the start. MARCØ proves to be a force to be reckoned with on his new track "Villain" featuring vocalist Esse, out now via Hegemon Select. He struck a balance between eerie and sultry with a catchy pluck and lush lyrics. It's hard not to nod your head to this one.
The track starts off with an eerie sounding pluck. Esse's vocals are introduced with a strong chordal pad. Overall, the ambient-sounding instrumental is decorated with random effects and foley. When the build is introduced the instrumental is layered beautifully with the vocal hook. It drops into a heavy and repetitive section with obvious trap influence. The second verse introduces new progressions, with an added hi-hat moving the beat towards the same drop as before and added elements making it bigger than ever.
