BERNA STARTS OFF 2022 WITH COLD NEW SINGLE “FORTY”
23 Feb 2022
There a few rappers who have managed to stay consistent over the years of making music; Berna is one of them. 2021 saw the East London raised but Cape Town born rapper give fans exactly what they wanted, with freestyles including Tim and Barry’s “No Miming” as well as “The Cold Room” on Mixtape Madness. Ahead of forthcoming project EAST2ESSEX, Berna has released cold new single “Forty”.
Production courtesy of Sokari and Henry Black embodies Berna’s trademark bounce, allowing him to showcase his lyrical contrast and versatility, switching between aggression, sincerity and moralism. Although the production seems velvety and warming, the lyrical conent throughout is much deeper than the beat may tell – which is what I personally love about this single.
Overall, Berna expresses and demonstrates his woke ability to create music with substance, with each bar paving a way to deliver his story in an intricate and credible way.
