Lungelo Manzi – I NEED YOU | #SongOfTheMonth :June

Durban based singer, rapper, beat-maker & songwriter Lungelo Manzi has once again shown he’s more than emerging talent, but a consistent force to be reckoned with. His new single carries a fusion of R&B and Hip-Hop where Mr Manzi expresses his undying love. Commenting on the album art and it’s link to the song on Genius, Manzi says “The robot-like pose on the bench references the movie character “Forrest Gump” who famously sits on a similar bench relating his personal story and his love for Jenny. This image draws a similar parallel with the story of the song, which speaks to a partner almost, pining, for the one they love with an earnestness akin to Forrest Gump.”
