The musical composition of producer Matthieu Bost (Skanking Sweet – Chronixx) that accompanies Ellis’s vocal chords delivers a timeless sound to the track, and as he belts out “All for you… I just hope you know That they… They only want you naked They only want you naked Yeah yes Eh I want four kids and a wife Two dogs big house real life with you Ma”, he masterfully captivates the longing emotions.
Speaking on his latest release, the soulful crooner related “The song started as an open concept, about a man trying to compete for a woman’s love when he only has love to offer and it seems that there are more impressive guys around. In the writing of the last verse though I decided to include my own life as well, after all I’ve got 4 kids and a wife … and two dogs. Still working on the big house though!”
