Emotional Oranges is a mysterious Los Angeles-based R&B-centric collective. Not too long ago, they released a groovy R&B tune, entitled, “Built That Way”.
Emotional Oranges – “Built That Way”
“You can be honest with me babe. Be honest with me babe. I have to let you know I’m built that way. So give it to me straight. Just give it to me babe. I’ll handle it, you know I’m built that way.” – lyrics
‘Built That Way’ tells an interesting tale of a couple who have a transparent and honest relationship. Even though everything is up front and center, the truth is still painful to hear.
The Miseducation by Lauryn Hill and Erykah Badu’s Mama’s Gun songs inspired Emotional Oranges to create their “Built That Way” single.
The bubbly tune contains a relatable storyline and ear-welcoming vocals. Also, the song possesses groovy instrumentation flavored with contemporary R&B and neo-soul elements.
