You might remember Crystal Caines as the producer behind A$AP Ferg's "Lord" with Bone Thugs N Harmony or her many credits collaborating on tracks with Nick Jonas, MIA, Baauer and more. After releasing five tracks earlier this year, she returns today with her newest offering "Aquarium" produced by Bronx Native V Don. In a warm pool of production, Crystal quickly pulls you into a reservoir of heartbreak as fluorescent fixtures illuminate her flowing reverb begging her lover to stay. By the chorus, the song's cautionary backbeat bubbles to the surface warning that she will "keep swimming" if he doesn't comply.
“Finding love isn't easy and the process can be tedious, usually ending in ever lasting love or heartbreak," Crystal told us over email. "We've all been a fish in someone else's aquarium— it's the name of the dating game, I suppose. Welcome to my journey of becoming a woman, losing love, and finding it in myself. Welcome to... AQUARIUM.”
Listen to "Aquarium" below and look out for her project "Vertigo" to drop early 2016.
