Listen: Kiwi Rapper That We’re Now Claiming As Our Own, Saint Lane, Drops Second Single “Sugary Sweet”
Words by: Alia Lievore
Following on from his first single “Compliment My Shirt”, Gold Coast rapper Saint Lane (originally a Kiwi but who cares he’s ours now) has dropped another banger release under his Saint Lane banner called “Sugary Sweet.”
Premiering on triple j's Home & Hosed with Declan Byrne the song has already racked up a tidy 100k streams.
Muir described the upbeat tune by saying, “Sugary Sweet is about when my ex girlfriend cheated on me. At the time it was heartbreaking and I think when anybody gets cheated on the easiest thing to do is blame yourself and that's exactly what I did. There's so many "I don't need no man" r&b tunes I realised there's no equivalent for the fellas. This is taking the idea of "am I not good enough" and flipping it to "no I'm fine as hell. I'm sugary sweet and don't need anybody". It's a song for people who have been taken advantage of and now they are saying no no no."
Produced by Dennis Dowlutt (Peking Duk, Flight Facilities, Set Mo) and Danny Duke Perez (Noname, Jai Waetford) maybe this song is the breakup anthem all the dudes are after? Regardless, the song is fine as hell....sugary sweet.
