“Inhale/Exhale” opens with sensual vocals from Sabrina Claudio. The duo produces a harmoniously seductive single that flawlessly fuses R&B and dance that’s a sultry start to any night out. “Freeway” then transports fans with a feel-good, upbeat track that’s complemented by Estelle’s vibrant energy. Together, Millz and Estelle create a timeless track that’s a flawless example of dancefloor pop. “Breathless” entices listeners with a sexy, decadent love letter accompanied by the tantalizing vocals of Alina Baraz leading to the EP’s lead single “On & On” with the soulful Justine Skye.
As the EP unfolds, listeners are soundly swept through the different phases of an unforgettable night out. Millz collaborates with two of the industry’s outstanding Black creatives on the two final tracks. Joined by the gifted queer lyricist and soulful performer, DESTIN CONRAD, together they create an irresistibly seductive track “Afterparty.” A song guaranteed to remain on spin beyond PRIDE month across many dimly lit dance floors; concluding with Duckworth’s flirtatious vocals and verses in “Familiar” to end the sonic night out and musical journey.
