Man it’s been a damn while since I last heard some new Jon Waltz tunes. The Memphis man’s last song “Riot” (an absolute smash) dropped in 2016(!!!). That’s two years worth of waiting. If you don’t know anything about Waltz, let me say the guy is a real treat of an artist. He’s built with flashes of Frank Ocean and his velvety voice delivers a spark of life to each of his tracks.
Waltz returns to us in 2018 with “Backstreets,” an upbeat joint that’s sure to pick up life’s tempo for you. It’s a bonafide bop, y’all. With “Backstreets” dropping early in the year this should be a sign for more to come from Waltz the rest of the way. He’s definitely a young artist to keep an eye on if you like to jump on the train early, because it’s only a matter of time before Jon Waltz catches fire.
Take a listen to “Backstreets” below and throw it in your rotation ASAP:
