If you ask Cordae about his sound, he has he makes soulful music that is relatable. “I make that shit that touches your soul, that the average human being can relate to,” he told Pigeons & Planes in May 2018. There's no way I’ma play this shit if you not about to nod yo head to it, and you not about to feel that shit in your soul and in your heart of hearts. It brings out certain emotions.” He also mentioned that he wants his music to resonate with college kids or people who are going through hard times and are looking to escape: “I want my music to make you reminiscent or nostalgic of your childhood, or take you back to a better place.”
