The 22-year-old Kentucky rapper confronts his newfound fame on a debut album that hints at finer things to come.
Jack Harlow’s ‘Thats What They All Say’ Is a Louisville Love Letter.
For a debut album, “That’s What They All Say” is pretty solid. Harlow plays to his strengths for most of the record, even if he tends to ride the back of his producers more often than not.
Ratings Game Music
At the tender age of 22, Jack Harlow has a Grammy nomination and a debut album that is pretty damn good.
Everything on this album is grounded but simultaneously relaxed and laid back – an incredibly hard contrast to balance. While Jack Harlow allows himself and collaborators ample space and time to express themselves, nothing feels forced and everything is purposeful, calculated and understood.
Black Boy Bulletin
Jack Harlow’s debut is a solid formal introduction to the rapper. Thats What They All Say leaps across genre lines and pulls from influences like Hall & Oates, Bee Gees, and Lil Wayne. Above all, Drake’s influence stands the tallest on the record. Time will tell if Jack can build on that influence and innovate something more unique or stay in the shadow of that blueprint. Regardless, Thats What They All Say is ultimately a showcase of Jack’s potential in every sense of the term. It seems like he’ll be around for a while.
The Musical Hype
The album has its notable moments, with hit singles “Tyler Herro” and “Whats Poppin” leading the charge. There are other nice records too but nothing particularly game changing that distinguishes the ascending rapper just yet. He’s still young, and if nothing else, his debut shows his potential.
That’s What They All Say is a solid request for those elements to the equation, an argument for Harlow’s inclusion into the cool white boy discussion, and a reason to ease up on the verbal abuse. Give the kid a chance and he might just surprise you.
