With so much talk about how the genre of R&B is slowly getting away from it’s roots it is always nice to be able to come across someone staying true the roots. Josh Waters fits the bill as one of those singers, and his soulful debut EP 1.4.3 is a prime example of this ability. Over the course of 7 tracks the rising star gives us his thoughts on love, lust and other emotions all with a voice that is unmatched by most.
“143 has a simple, yet broad meaning. The numbers 1, 4 and 3 represent the number letters in each word when you spell out “I LOVE YOU”. This EP explores love on all levels of a relationship, from meeting a woman, treating her, falling out and then realizing love is the only thing consistent and it’s needed. God is love and love is unconditional acceptance of one another and everything that goes on around us.” – Josh Waters
1.4.3 contains features from Domani Harris, Res and of course Smoke DZA on the lead single “This Fire”. Production is handled in large part by ZThePro with additional contributions from Big K.R.I.T., Ian Ewing & Garrett Benally and Joedi.
