Summer flings are just that. During this highly promiscuous hot girl/boy summer, Mozzy doesn’t give up on what real love is on his latest single, “Cut Ties.”

Sacramento’s Mozzy The Motive turns his latest single into a breezy California affair with rising R&B star Marc E. Bassy and Sage The Gemini. Together, they deliver a tale of summer lust, heartbreak and moving forward that translates into a potential song of the summer.

Mozzy opens up about lost love with a reminder that everyone needs a little bit of TLC every once in a while.

Bassy sets the tone for the song off top. As a filtered R&B vocal sample slowly fades into the guitar loop in the production, Bassy’s vocals slowly emerge into the fold. Mozzy opens up about lost love with a reminder that everyone needs a little bit of TLC every once in a while.

First you tell me ‘pull up,’ then you tell me never mind / Blood put his hands on you, I was there for you every time,” he raps. “Lookin’ at the photo you sent, it got me mesmerized / Like, damn, I’m in love, quit playin’ with a thug,” he continues while adding a tinge of harmony to his delivery, complementing the R&B vibe already set with the production.

Mozzy’s decision to add additional voices to his own narrative only enhances the overall message. He’s fighting to win back the love of his life while Sage The Gemini takes on the role of the side-man. But it’s Marc E. Bassy that ties together the whole song with the hook.

Whether you’re the side-piece or the entree, everyone has a level of tolerance before it’s necessary to cut ties.
