WithLoveXavier has some burning questions for you in his smouldering new single For What — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
The latest single from the hip-hop/R&B artist’s freshly pressed LP This Is Fine, For What (ft. 9D4 JU) is one chapter in a creative arc that spans the release start to finish. “It’s a rollercoaster,” WithLoveXavier — aka Matthew Xavier Hunter — says of the album. “It’s an eight-part rollercoaster that tells the story of a man who is trying to give love a second chance, but is in conflict with himself — and the world.”
The LP — which, yes, is named for the iconic meme — is spreading like its own kind of wildfire, resonating wide following its February 2021 release. One noteworthy nod for the Brooklyn artist’s work came from singer and songwriter Ne-Yo. “He reached out,” Xavier shares. “He even added his voice to the album. It was like a passing of a torch.”
WithLoveXavier is quickly becoming known for his unique lyricism — his way of relating and sharing through music. He first stepped onto the scene in 2019 with Feenin’, and has since added six additional singles — including the stream-stackers Deserve It and Good Vibes — before this year’s debut LP.
“When you’re listening to my music, you’re listening to my heart,” Xavier reveals of his intimate songwriting style. “You hear my love, and my happiness … You hear my heartbreak, and my pain. Music is my way of opening up to the world. You get the real me.”
