There is a high diversity of tempo on Drea Jeann‘s “Come Back To Me”. A slower, snapping backbeat; a quick step vocal turn. These clever hooks draw a listener in, while Jeann spins a story of the hardest kind of love — the kind you can’t walk away from.
Drea Jeann has clear control over her voice from the get-go, but it is when she bridges into the chorus with a graceful soprano before dipping back down that the full range of her ability shines. And shine is a word to hold on to, as that is exactly what she does in the accompanying clip.
Backlit in black or angelic in white: Jeann performs in real time while she and her lover swim submerged in slow-then-fast motion beats. Being able to display every painful flit of emotion while remaining gracefully underwater is no easy feat, but it’s another skill that Drea Jeann possesses. Here there is panic, there is longing, and there is relief. But if you’ve been paying attention to the lyrics, the only remaining question is “for how long?”
