Praise is a 20-year-old rapper from Brooklyn, NY. ‘Tempted’ utilizes the best parts of the ‘Tempted to Touch’ vocal sample under Praise’s upfront, braggadocious lyrics. It’s an anthem that gets heads bobbing and cars blasting it out of their stereo speakers. Her attitude coincides with her passion and lyrical intelligence, making for a complete, drill banger for the masses. Praise’s upbringing and surroundings gave her inspiration for this track. Praise talks about the conflict of living in a place that requires being tough to survive, and being feminine. Praise wanted to put out a Drill song as Drill is the sound of the city right now and she wants to embrace and embody New York. Praise about the song, “It samples ‘Tempted to touch’ by Rupee, but has hard lyrics that represent my experience as a woman raised in Brooklyn. It’s a mix of being pretty and girlie, but also having that gangsta attitude that’s “with whatever.” The song to me is a representation of me stepping into my confidence as an artist, and I would my audience to get a similar feeling as listeners.”
