If Drake were braver with range and bouncier with beats in his early days, he might've snuck a ballad like ForteBowie's "So Emotional" on So Far Gone. Bowie sings capably over jubilant production on his latest cut, sounding legitimately bummed: Fell in love with the right girl with the wrong mind, and these the kind of things you gotta learn as you go, he reflects. The Atlanta rapper/singer is transparent when he tells us about the Freeze Frame Media-directed video, which he's dropped to celebrate his upcoming tour: "Nowadays these niggas in my city run away from vulnerable. I don't care anymore," Bowie explains to the FADER. "The girl in the video is someone I've actually been 'emotional' about. You know, 2015 is about real." ForteBowie's Passion & Confusion drops this spring—catch him on the road starting this Thursday.
