Powerhouse singer, songwriter, and producer John-Robert is back again with a stellar song “Healthy Baby Boy”. if you wanted to listen to a song that will pull at your heart strings then this is the one. The song can be described as a mix of sad and sweet, the song wrings bright nostalgia from gentle guitar plucks, intimate vocals, and building production. Roberts wrote the song A mix of sad and sweet, the song wrings bright nostalgia from gentle guitar plucks, intimate vocals, and building production.
“I wrote ‘Healthy Baby Boy’ after I’d uprooted my life, I was initially devastatingly lonely and became fairly depressed and reflective. But I realized I can still communicate my love for those in my life despite the distance, and this song is my journey towards feeling empowered by and appreciative of the opportunities I have that sometimes seem invisible at a glance.” The song is an emotional roller-coaster that is raw and authentic to John. The song really takes off straight from the beginning with the opening line that refers to him receiving a guitar from hitmaking producer Ricky Reed—“Ricky gifted me a Silvertone / Mom and Dad are proud that I am out and on my own”—to lyrics about lives ending and beginning back in Edinburg, VA.
The music video to accompany the song is just as beautiful as the song. Directed by BROCKHAMPTON collaborator Spencer Ford, the “Healthy Baby Boy” video follows that journey almost literally as the artist says goodbye to his folks—Silvertone in hand—and lets his mind wander through a childhood of simple pleasures and innocent romance. It’s a real coming of age story that showcases just how versatile John really is in his music. John has been unstoppable and a force to be reckoned with, we can’t wait to see what he has in store next!
Keep Up With John-Roberts!
