Music Review: Stamina - Big Lean
“My momma asking me for grandkids. Here’s what the plan is. You be my Michelle and I’ll be your Barack.”
Off of first listen, I liked the style of Stamina. It has a dancehall type of beat and Toronto's Big Lean makes his voice fit perfectly with it. I’ve heard previous Lean songs, but not like this. This shows his versatility.
After a few listens, I was shown the video. This is what really makes the song shine. The location I’m guessing is in Jamaica mainly on the beach and various other places. What I noticed to make it real authentic was the Red Stripe beer chilling in the cut. You can tell some thought was put into the visual and it wasn’t just put out just because. I appreciate this song that much more. Also I would love to hear this being played at a club or an event that promotes all or most dancehall music. Definitely putting Stamina in my rotation when I feel like visioning myself on the islands with clear waters, some drinks, a cigar, and a woman by my side. Check it out for yourself below…
