Tapped In: Bren Joy

Ian Tsang

Nashville’s very own, Bren Joy, releases the deluxe remaster of his debut album Twenties as well as the dreamy visuals for his track “Insecure” – a joint venture with fellow recording artist, Pink Sweat$. At its core, "Insecure" is the epitome of perfection: a seamless blend of vocals between two of R&B’s most prominent figures – one of whom has already received their mainstream success, and another, who (with this track), may have just paved their way to stardom.

“Will you be there in the morning? Calling?

Making sure I’m good?

When I hit you in the evening, feeling, way too insecure.

And baby if I fall, I wanna land right in your bed,

So you can tell me in the morning, you were tripping,

How could you be so in your head?”

Insecure is lullaby meets serenade – using surreal electrics as an intro for a stellar addition to his already exceptional discography. Very rarely do those tracks come around that you can’t get out of your head, but that’s exactly what this is. The duo of Bren Joy and Pink Sweat$ pairs perfectly together. Pink Sweat$, born David Bowden, has a noticeably thicker voice compared to his musical counterpart. But when both singers trade on-and-off throughout the bridge and chorus, each artists’ strengths play out and receive their respective praise. This pairing is harmonious to say the least, as the dynamic duo fosters a feeling of serenity, peace, and love - highlighting the nuances between each other’s tones.

Bren’s stardom has seen recent success; while building his repertoire, the singer shared the stage with the likes of Jhene Aiko and Megan Thee Stallion. But with "Insecure," Bren seized the opportunity to work with yet another musical great. Insecure is 2021’s anthem for the unconditional lover. Dive into their track below:
