Joshua Luke Smith's latest single "Carry Me" is a personal jam that focuses on Smith's relationship with his mother and his struggle with finding an identity as he grows older. "Carry Me" uses elements of R&B, gospel, and hip-hop in a minimal format, and with lines like, "Cause beneath the peer pressure and drunken nights out, mama I just want to impress you and make you proud," "Carry Me" is able to make itself instantly relatable to those of us that have gone through, or are currently going through the confusing teenage/young adult years. The single also makes great usage of live instrumentation as well as the addition of 808 drum programming in the beginning of the song. Overall, its Smith's distinctive voice and the songs arrangement that sets it apart. Smith's low tenor, UK accent, and unorthodox flow accompanied by a gripping story told throughout the singles two verses, gives this track an ample amount of replay value.
