Powerfully and soulfully infectious, Beatchild & the Slakadeliqs’ latest single is a joyous coming together in times of hardship and division. Timely in its heartfelt message and deeply stirring with its vibrant, grooving melody, “The Only Difference” features singer-songwriter Justin Nozuka as he and Beatchild swap lively and uplifting verses. Both musically and thematically, the song recalls an era of classic R&B that can set Beatchild & the Slakadeliqs near the forefront of its revival in a vein similar to Lee Fields & the Expressions. Directed by Dan LeMoyne, new music video encompasses these same feel-good vibes, embracing unity.
Beatchild tells PopMatters, “The feeling of the song is one of coming together during difficult times and looking beyond our perceived differences. I wanted the video to reflect that feeling of human connection and hope to inspire people to take care of one another.”
