Infectious with an upbeat tempo, “WAVES” brings a cool vibe while chronicling a pretty serious subject of issues and differences in relationships. The song explores how sometimes individuals end up getting what they need outside of their relationship.
Marking a musical shift, Deuce explains the inspiration behind the song:
“The inspiration behind “WAVES” comes from real moments I had with a woman I was dealing with outside of my failing relationship. I went through the euphoria of being with that person but still touched on the strain of outside influences in the dynamic. I had a woman, but my heart was somewhere else completely. The song was actually freestyled one night after I linked up with my engineer. The beat took me through a rollercoaster of emotions,” said Deuce.
“I talked about both women simultaneously in the song, but most of the happy parts were inspired by the other woman,” he continued.
