Better Man


An R&B-infused pop tune with a powerful message.

London, UK-based musical creative, Sekou, is a rising 18-year-old singer and songwriter who is ready to share his unique creations with the world. Prior to the release of his debut single, the artist’s stunning vocals were already earning plenty of attention from notable names in the industry; including Quincy Jones. Since first making waves in the music scene, Sekou has since been spotted with artists like Bruno Mars and Anderson Paak. Last year, he performed at the Glastonbury Festival and later signed with Island Records UK and Republic Records. His discography, though currently limited, is available on Spotify, YouTube, and Apple Music. Sekou’s freshman single is the R&B/pop tune “Better Man.” The song also has accompanying visuals.

A sweet and simple melodic piano makes us all feel the message of “Better Man” before Sekou even starts to speak. This thought-provoking reflection sets us up for internal debates and uncertainties that must be resolved. Lyrics like “I find it hard to figure it out / I gave it my all without a doubt” and “Some loose ends they don’t get tied / I had to learn to change my mind” reflect on struggles and the choice to become a better person for ourselves. It’s time to saddle up and learn how to do what’s best for you, and sometimes, that’s hard. We need to be better than we are and force our perspectives to change sometimes. So, press play on Sekou’s new single to learn how to become a “Better Man.”
