Brooklyn based artists, Yellow Shoots and Johnny Burgos release their single, Fun Tonight, a collaboration that captures the evolution of both their friendship and their respective artistry. The single is part of Burgos’ upcoming LP “Falling into Place.” The upbeat single has funk elements mixed with modern R&B melodies. The soothing guitar plucks and the faint shaker sounds in the background really create this feel-good vibe for the listener. The groove reminds me of Bruno Mars style of music. The vocalist falsetto notes really add that flavor to this track along with everything else.
