Aquakultre - Wife Tonight

Fast-rising hip-hop/R&B artist Lance Sampson feels the funk on this lustful cut.

Aquakultre - Wife Tonight

By Kerry Doole

Aquakultre - Wife Tonight (Black Buffalo Records): Things have moved quickly for Halifax R&B/hip-hop artist Lance Sampson (aka Aquakultre). He only started rapping in 2015, after he'd served a five-year stretch in federal prison. Three years later, he won the CBC's Searchlight competition, participated in the prestigious Allan Slaight Juno Master Class program, and recorded a new album,  Legacy, at the National Music Centre.


It comes out on Friday, preceded by this focus cut that showcases just why such a buzz is surrounding Sampson. While two recent singles, I Doubt It and Pay It Forward, traversed R&B and old school hip-hop terrain, Wife Tonight brings out the funk.

This is an upbeat romp accented by cool clavinet work that certainly recalls Stevie Wonder a la Superstition, while Sampson lustfully declares he's "looking for a wife tonight." A cut sure to go over well in a future live setting.

Joining Sampson in Aquakultre are bandmates Nathan Doucet, Nick Dourado, and Jeremy Costello.
