“Flower boy” is a poignant diary entry, delving into the ‘growing pains’ Danté faced while navigating the uncertainties of life.
The song serves as a symbolic exploration of fear, self-doubt, and the quest for identity. Danté collaborated with close friend and mentor Tory Du Plessis, alongside producer Ewald Jansen van Rensburg (Monark), to bring his vision to life. The result is a deeply meaningful and introspective track, marking a departure from his previous pop-influenced singles.
His musical style seamlessly blends elements of pop and singer/songwriter, showcasing his versatility and willingness to experiment with different genres.
While his previous releases, “Run” and “Pick It Up,” displayed a more pop-oriented sound, “Flower Boy” introduces a raw and vulnerable side of Danté, emphasizing the emotional depth of his songwriting.
