I still don’t know where I fall on the Rome Fortune fan spectrum. I’m aware of his work, but I’ve yet to find that one song that does it for me. In spite of that I can say one thing: Fortune has a great ear for beats. Jacques Greene laces him with an ethereal dream-pop soundscape that is the real star of the show on “Pure,” the latest cut from the ATL artist. Across the choice production, Rome spits personal bars like, “I appreciated the pain it makes me relevant.” Between the airy instrumental and Fortune’s gravel vocals, there’s a nice dichotomy to the whole affair.
