“PsychMo – Celebrate” The Review

Celebrate is a braggadocio anthem on living the good life. A musical call to break free of moments of inhibition and worries. “I wanna play safe but there is no rule tonight’ is a line in the song that underscores the theme of Celebrate. PsychMo is not sticking with the formula; rather he sticks out his neck and he’s ready to explore. His ability to write witty lines and deliver faultless vocal brings the perfect synergy of pop, fuji and hip hop in a wonderful fusion  out in Celebrate. This readily makes him an artiste to relish. Enjoy the wonderfully fresh and calming sound of PsychMo.  It is a feel free, club anthem that will influence a movement; I am gonna be less surprised if this song spawned it own dance sequence. This is the first official single off his forthcoming LP The Name iz S.O.S...
