. Lucas is a Hip Hop/r&b singer based on Florida.
Massachusetts-bred, Florida-based artist Lucas has been featured on our platform a number of times recently, and now he returns once again with a fresh video for his single “the art of being happy”. Following up singles “zizou” and “caprisun”, “the art of being happy” continues to expand his signature sound centred around carefree, warm sonics and heartfelt songwriting that blends influences from genres like hip-hop, R&B, and alt-pop. With a refreshing new visual directed by Freehoneyy, “the art of being happy” is sure to bring back nostalgia and longing for the balmier weather of summer.
“the art of being happy” contains an addictive bassline mooring a swathe of atmospheric, layered synths. Lucas‘ enters vocals that feel both laid-back and unrestrained, matching the energy of the smooth, sleek production. Locked in by crisp percussion and underscored by watery keys, he floats atop the track with an effortless sort of charisma across his vocal performance. The new accompanying visual reflects the song’s warmth and vaguely psychedelic style, with hazy and calm yet surreal shots, as well as an engaging performance from Lucas.
Amazing. This song has a whole vibe. This is the type you blast at night cruising down the road in ya whip. The artist’s flow is so amazing and attractive. The beat of this song is world class. The rhythm and melody of this song are impressive.
