“Not Quite Sure How Many More Lies I Can Take”: Listen to SOLOMON’s Heartfelt Breakup Single “over”

SOLOMON (@solomonmusicuk) is a 25-year-old singer-songwriter from North London, England. For Valentine’s Day, he released “over,” an empowering bossa nova breakup song about being cheated on.

SOLOMON – “over” (Official Lyric Video)

“Well, I guess this is the end. Don’t know what’s left for us but I’m done with the pretend. My friend, don’t cry to me for closure. You already signed the dotted line when you called him over. You stained the sheets, it’s plain to see don’t play with me then claim that it’s okay to be. I hate to see what came to be was make-believe, don’t make me leave late now. This sh*t’s over, I’ve exposed ya. I don’t know just how long this goes on for.” – lyrics

‘over’ finds SOLOMON purging the emotions that come with heartbreak into a cathartic confessional. Building from sparse acoustic guitar into punchy, R&B-tinged beats, ‘over’ feels as intimate as a closely guarded secret while SOLOMON’s versatile vocal is the star of the show. Switching effortlessly between soulful high notes, a whispered croon, and staccato rhymes, every line that SOLOMON delivers feels like an authentic outpouring of emotion.

Hailing from Kensal Rise, SOLOMON started playing guitar during early childhood and would often be the youngest performer at his local open mic night. After he started to write and produce songs in his teens, the attention around him was soon amplified, with a first flood of fascination on TikTok (his profile has now exceeded 18.5 million likes) – the springboard for his career.

SOLOMON’s music is more than the sum of his influences, but similarly far-reaching: think timeless singer-songwriters and modern icons alike including FINNEAS, John Mayer, and Ed Sheeran. Early tracks such as ‘listen up’ and ‘sore loser’ achieved his first impact, while his Kojey Radical collab, ‘phases,’ the ‘FOR STARTERS EP’ and his take on The Paper Kites’ ‘Bloom’ have all kept his momentum bubbling. Moreover, BROCKHAMPTON sampled his track ‘robbery’ for ‘LISTERINE,’ while Ice Spice drew upon ‘phases’ for her own ‘On The Radar.’ Yet for all those big moments, SOLOMON is also unafraid to showcase his creativity in skeletal form, as shown in the ‘VOICE MEMOS’ set; an ever-growing playlist of short track snippets, designed to be sampled and remixed by other creatives.

SOLOMON is firmly established as a major next-wave talent. Following on from a sold-out headline show at London’s Oslo last year, he commenced a North American tour as a special guest to Pink Sweat$.
