An ambitious collaboration in the neo-soul realm, Flwr Chyld teams up with Baby Rose and Sebastian Mikael for the romantically cathartic “U Should Be Mine,” a track composed of deep red, candlelit wanting.
A sonic yearning, “U Should Be Mine” reintroduces a tactic the industry has watched dissipate in recent years—unabashedly pleading for the one you want. The modern-day R&B girlies aren’t dropping to their knees, ripping off their shirts, and demanding their lover’s gaze the way they used to, and Baby Rose is doing her due diligence in making uncontrollable desire sexy again.
With Flwr Chyld’s seamless production meeting the integration of Baby Rose and Sebastian Mikael’s funkadelic vocals, we’re bearing witness to the birth of a dream team. With winding electric guitar (courtesy of Alex Hassell) and blaring horns (courtesy of Sammy Haig) threading together this sensual masterpiece, it’s tracks like these that validate why Flwr Chyld, Baby Rose, and Sebastian Mikael are the major names brought up when discussing the rebirth of alternative R&B. As musical elders fret whether or not the genre is within good hands, this is a humbling moment of reassurance.
Each artist on this track is coming off of an incredibly powerful year, with all three acts headlining their own national tours and Baby Rose slated to perform at the highly anticipated Camp Flog Gnaw. As they usher in a new era of funk, “U Should Be Mine” stands as proof that anything birthed from the soul will transcend language, status, and time, ultimately gifting the power of feeling.
