Ever since I saw SPRTYK’s impeccable “Helly Hansen” music video earlier this summer, I’ve been anticipating the next move from the rising New York rapper. This week, she’s offered the next glimpse at what she’s working with on her second single, “Flourish.”
Offering more of the potent bravado that immediately shone through on “Helly Hansen”, SPRTYK continues to let her confidence supercharge her bars. An ode to showing out and showing off with no shame, she simultaneously gasses a listener and herself up like the best friend we all deserve. Her flows accentuate the boastfulness in her lyrics, handling the beat with a steady, gloating cadence that echoes the rhymes of her East-coast predecessors. If “Helly Hansen” had listeners suspecting she could be a threat, “Flourish” confirms SPRTYK has the talent to make serious moves on her own terms.
