Louisiana Hip-Hop Artist, Aries Marquis, wears an array of jazzy hats as he bounces between lyrical dynamite, poetically raw prose and downright soulful verse throughout his album release, ‘Salvation: The Arrival’. Kicking off with the first track, “The Arrival”, Aries prepares listeners with a melodic and moving opening that tells the tale of challenging walks that he has taken to reach the place that he is within at the moment. The second track, “Ready To Fly”, is the lyrical release of Aries’ past as he embodies the bold, mature and wizened individual that he has become which has led him toward creating the inspiration to bring the album to life.
If you’re a fan of fellow romantic and expressive lyricists such as Tyrese, R. Kelly and Ginuwine, then the third track, “Lessons”, is the track that’ll pull at your heartstrings as Aries’ emotional growth shines while he lyrically holds himself accountable of the energy that he allows into his life. The fourth track, “Better Days”, slows it down into an ode and dedication to gifting himself with patience as Aries accepts that he will no longer tear at barbed wire with bare hands and is willing to do whatever it takes to create a better life for himself and his family. “No Light” is the fifth track which takes the album for a harder turn with a bold production style that mimics the likes of Craig David in his ‘Born To Do It’ days as Aries’ refuses to step down from his throne even though every emphatic bone in his body aches from accepting less in the past.
“Salvation” is the seventh track in which Aries’ idiosyncratic aesthetic is a highlight as the neon soul singer sticks out like a sore thumb over a startling beat that adds an emotive element that elevates the fluctuating states of mind that Aries has encountered to reach his current state of serenity. The eighth track, “For Life”, is dance floor sugar as the flirtatious vibes coming straight from Aries heart lights up the spirit of the one that he loves. Closing out with “Wanna Be Free”, the track serves as a boost of motivation as Aries takes action in the most beneficial direction to lead a life of peace and sets an examples for listeners enamored with his genuine authenticity.
If you’re a fan of fellow musicians such as Tyrese, Marques Houston and Trey Songz, then keep an eye out for the trail that Aries is bound to blaze as he journeys through his inner maze and steadily finds solid ground within his artistic endeavors.
