“Explode“, the latest single to be released by Kyle Lettman, embodies the soul, pain, and vibe of a true R&B joint. An authentic slow jam with an intense and sensual production, Kyle explores the tormenting irresistibility of forbidden fruit and uses it as a metaphor for the exasperating pain of desiring someone, despite knowing that the relationship is harmful or impossible.
“I wanted to connect with the R&B side of myself, and ‘Explode‘ was the result. It tells the story of two people who just shouldn’t be in each other’s lives because of the effect they have on each other.”
The video, directed by Chas Appeti, sees Kyle and his love struggling to resist each other as Kyle serenades us with the bittersweet “when you feel so wrong it’s right“. The video perfectly reflects the tempting, yet excruciating, experience of an illicit love affair expressed in the track.
From his work with Mary J Blige to having writing credits for some of the biggest names in the business, including Frank Ocean, Ne-Yo, Nicole Sherzinger, Kele Le Roc, and Varren Wade, Kyle is a seasoned R&B talent that has often sneaked under the radar of the mainstream in recent years as his pen has done the talking. A UK gem to be celebrated and cherished, Kyle Lettman continues his elegant ascent through music.
