In today’s society, staying true to yourself can lead to labels like “freak” from those who fear what’s different. Stillyoung, however, offers a powerful response in his captivating debut single, “Freak Like Me.” It’s a celebration of embracing your authenticity, just like Stillyoung himself does.

Hailing from Oakland, California, Stillyoung is an artist who’s not afraid to wear his heart on his sleeve, and his music aims to inspire others to do the same, proving that happiness lies in finding true, genuine connections. In his fresh release, “Freak Like Me,” he shed old habits, built new relationships, and embraced his true self, even if it meant facing rejection.

“Freak Like Me” is a relatable exploration of self-doubt and the courage it takes to love someone who doesn’t fit the mold. The song’s strength lies in its raw honesty—a plea for connection that resonates with anyone who’s ever felt like an outsider. However, the music itself is a counterpoint to the emotional vulnerability. Uplifting from start to finish, it matches the genuine vibes and features smooth vocals. These vocals are silky and dynamic, showcasing the singer’s affection in a vulnerable yet captivating way.

Through poignant lyrics, Stillyoung explores the transformative power of love as the song opens with a woman’s uncertainty about her future and happiness, but Stillyoung counters with a cherished memory, “But what about the time we went to the golden gate?” a symbol of both freedom and connection, offering both points of view and leaving us to contemplate the future of the relationship.

“Freak Like Me” is a song that lingers long after the last note fades, a testament to the power of self-love and acceptance.
