HeIsTheArtist, whose real name is Leemann Bassey, has been making waves in the music industry with his unique sound that combines Broadway style vocals with elements of neo-soul.

These songs are a reminder to embrace love in all its forms, whether it be romantic or self-love.

The EP comes to a powerful conclusion with covers of “Diamonds” by Rihanna and “Brown Skin” by India.Arie, promoting the message of self-love and breaking beauty standards. These songs are a fitting end to the EP, as they encourage listeners to embrace and love themselves, regardless of societal norms.

In addition to the original tracks, the Wicked Deluxe Edition also includes two 80s-inspired remixes of “Mi Amor,” including the latest single, “Mi Amor (City Pop Remix).” These remixes offer a fresh take on the already popular track and showcase HeIsTheArtist’s ability to infuse different genres into his music.
