Jerreau’s “Never How You Plan,” Very True

On April 8, 2016, Jerreau (of Fly Union) released a solo album titled, Never How You Plan. Extremely late to the party, I put myself onto this album about a month ago and it couldn’t have come at a better time.

I was doing my daily Youtube surf when I clicked on the video for Really Got It. Roughly a minute into the song, I said to myself, “Lebron? This track is hard,” and, “is that the dude from FlyU?”

(After the video I searched, Like That feat. Dom Kennedy, and it was confirmed)

The horns have a champion feel, and the drums touch your soul. “I’m everywhere I just didn’t get no pics up… You wanna style her, I wanna undress her.”

Jumping over to Tidal, I added Really Got It to my favorites, and saw NHYP was his only solo project. “Let me give this a spin.”

I forgot all about Jerreau and Fly Union. I was never a real fan but I respected the work they put out. I can’t say it enough, I love the underground/indie artist scene from 2009-12. It was in a good position, and the last time I heard these names.

Before I mentioned how this album came at the perfect time. I was in a rough spot, going through a slump and this album gave me a much needed lift. In the first photo, Jerreau speaks on the concept behind NHYPI saw that for the first time when I started writing this post. I felt that listening to the album the first few days straight.

“I had to hustle, I had to stop fucking with y’all. I had to mature. I had to start saving more, so I had to start making more.”

A lot of lyrics, beats and vibes I felt within. At times, I thought the music was speaking to me directly. Where would we be without music huh?

Check the album and leave your thoughts below.
