Toronto native and Halal Gang repping SAFE has started the new year strongly. Shortly after providing us with a revised and silky rendition of his 2018 song “FEEL”, he has followed it up with Hashtag.
The multi-talented artist has already demonstrated the ability to weave between genres persuasively and journeying through his 2020 releases reinforces that argument from the guitar-led melodies Orange Freestyle to the rapping alongside the late Smoke Dawg on Gang on the Map.
Hashtag exhibits this again, whilst being a short offering (coming in just under two minutes) gives an ethereal feel to it which encapsulates a style that SAFE excels at. The modernized R&B sound composed of the piano melodies and old school percussive pop elements accompanies SAFE’s tone perfectly before the hook provides a hazy feel to round off the track. It’s one that feels like it ends too quickly and that’s only ever a good thing.

Hopefully, 2021 is composed of SAFE’s sound and we’re looking forward to hearing more from him going forward. Over the last year or so, SAFE has delivered a constant stream of singles with his last full-length project, STAY, released in 2019.
