Muni Long is setting the tone for a successful new year to come. After dropping off her Public Displays of Affection project a few weeks ago, fans have quickly been drawn towards her entrancing voice, pristine pen, and smooth vibe. She smartly has kept the momentum going with consistent visuals, starting with “Time Machine,” then followed by “To Do List,” “IMU,” “No Signal,” and “Hrs and Hrs.”
It was fate when social media propelled “Hrs and Hrs” to become the stand-out. As R&B lovers everywhere gravitated towards the track, one fan of the song in particular, August Alsina, loved it so much he decided to put his own twist on it for a remix, which fans can check out below.
Best known for writing/co-writing the hit singles “California King Bed” by Rihanna, “Worth It” by Fifth Harmony, Kelly Clarkson’s “Love So Soft,” Pitbull’s “Timber,” and “A No No” by Mariah Carey, Muni is now embarking on her own solo recording career.
Prior to the EP’s release, Muni took some time to break down an explanation behind the track. “’Hrs and Hrs’ is just a vibe,” she says in a recent sit down. “I was washing dishes, and it was just a very monotonous task. I hate cleaning up. So I decided to listen to some tracks while I was washing dishes. This one came up, and I just started freestyling. I would every now and then use my elbow to start it over from the top. I think I wrote the song in maybe 20 minutes. I went in the studio a couple of days later and recorded it. It’s probably my favorite song to sing live. It’s just so beautiful.”
