Two days before the release of blackSUMMERS’night, Maxwell decided to drop two more singles from the album.
The lyrics for “Fingers Crossed” are signed throughout the video while Maxwell sings about how he hopes the love he wants to share will be accepted by his love interest. “Hostage”, on the other hand, is a much softer ballad. It’s talks about a love that has a hold on him, which I know a lot of us can relate to.
So far, the “Pretty Wings” singer has released four singles from his upcoming album set to drop July 1. Maxwell seems pretty determined to bring that R&B feel back that we’ve been desperately missing, and we are here for it. Listen to both singles below.
