British Singer Priime Introduces Himself With Debut Single Lil Bit Longer

British singer, songwriter and rapper Priime is introducing himself with the debut single “Lil Bit Longer.’ Inspired by Mary Poppins and produced by LNTMusicGrp, the song is a mix of pop and R&B and Priime calls his sound Hybrid Music. Priime explains the motivation behind “Lil Bit Longer”:

“The idea for ‘Lil Bit Longer’ came after one of those late night conversations with a significant other that you never want to end, and it expresses the antithesis need for us to spend more time with ourselves, for the sole purpose of self-awareness. Notwithstanding, art is a very subjective form of self-expression, in that it is whatever you make it out to be. “Lil Bit Longer” was inspired by elements of my faith and belief, which teach that my identity is rooted in the image of God, so in spending time with Him, I come to learn not just who and what I am but also who and what I’m not. I was inspired to compose the song in the first person, taking on the position of God himself as I feel he relates to me.”
