Son of Mars opens up even more about his track “Flip”, the most literal song of his drop. It is evident in the raw vulnerability of the track that Mars picked up lyrics and started singing from the heart; that’s what makes this song so great. It was not till attending the University of Rochester in (2018) did he discover his passion for music. It was at the university where he was able to pursue musical production and further his interests in Greek mythology and entrepreneurship.
He once stated when he was younger his family members in Trinidad often remember him referring to himself as “Demi God” a trend that has stuck with him in the later years.
Yes, “Flip” is sure to stir the pot on social media with lines such as “Howling me the blues, at the moon yelling at the moon make her loony toon” This song reminds the audience further that the public has never and will never understand the full weight of his private life, regardless of how much digging is done. Listen for the drama if you please, yet this song seems to sound even better when you simply close your eyes and let it play.
