about

If anyone from Florida tells you that something is « Bussin », it simply means that it’s tasty. Orlando-born Devin Morrison's first solo album on NBN Records, « Bussin » gives you an ill mix of flavors with eclectic inspirations rooted in 90's R&B, Gospel and Funk.


You get fresh-squeezed harmonies inspired by the likes of Take 6 & Commissioned on slow jamz like « It’s Time » and « Bussin », melodies that pierce like spears on « No » and drums that bite like gator jaws on the G Funk infused banger « The Struggle Iz Real » featuring Daz Dillinger.


Singer/Songwriter/Composer, Devin Morrison aims to show the world the sweet sound of Florida that it has yet to hear while collaborating with the finest voices the R&B, such as Grammy Award nominees KING, super talented singer from L.A. Joyce Wrice on the classic R&B duet « With You », or seasoned originals like Ace Hashimoto (aka BrandUn DeShay) on the futuristic sounding « Guaranteed ».


The opening track « It's Time » features a guitar performance from Devin's father, a solo recording artist in the early 90's known as Dah-Vi and ends up on a personal note with the spiritual jam « Fairytale » (featuring vocals from Devin's older brother, Lakks Mable) and the introspective « Love Yourself ».

As Devin tweeted, « As long as I'm alive, R&B shall be as well ».

The expectations are high for this Floridian creative, and Devin Morrison is here to live up to his own.

Track Name: It's Time feat Dah-Vi
Intro:

to fly, high
maybe it's time to fly

Verse:

(Maybe it's time)
to get up off the couch and pretend you're alive
(Maybe it's time)
to shut up and stop making exclusions for you life
(Maybe it's time)
to get out of your head
(and into the sky)
oh, that was a metaphor for living your life
no crying when you're shooting the breeze
have fun through those challenges and then you will see
you'll be just fine,
it's only in your mind
oh, 'cause you're overthinking through the night
oh, maybe it's time..

Chorus:

to fly, high
maybe it's time
to fly, high
maybe it's time to fly

Solo:
(Maybe it's time)...
Track Name: With You feat Joyce Wrice
Intro: (Fitz Ambro$se)

break it down like...(woo)
Joyce...(hi!)

Verse 1 (Joyce Wrice):

Finally free
With no more hesitation comin' from me
Now i see the most important thing (what's that?)
Is loving me over and over through all my insecurities..
It's hard to believe
That you'd take time to love what's underneath
Baby congratulations, you got me!
I'll return the favor in unconditional care and respect

Bridge (Devin Morrison):

Crossing out every prospect
And leaving them at the door
(Together)
I'm forever yours,
I'm head over heels over you
Doo doo doo doo- doo

Chorus:

I'm so in love with you
Life Is better with you
I will never trade a thing in the world for our love

Verse 2 (Devin):

(Oowee!)
Ain't got no doubt that we are meant to be
'Cuz I've never felt so happy
And it keeps getting better and better
Forever's not enough for me
I'm a fool
And everybody knows it's true
I pray for the day you say, "I do"
You're truly an angel the Heavens prepared, very well

Bridge (Joyce Wrice):

No, it doesn't matter what happens
You're terminally adored
I'm forever yours,
I'm head over heels, over you
Doo doo doo doo- doo

Chorus:

I'm so in love with you
Life Is better with you
I will never trade a thing in the world for our love
(Oh)
Different like orange and apple
in love till we peel and core
forevermore
I'm head over heels over you
Doo doo doo doo- doo
Track Name: Be Aiight
Chorus:

I'll be aiight, girl
(Go on baby just do your thing)
I'll be aiight. girl
(Don't worry about me)
Even though ,right now it's hurting me
(I'm sure you're fine)
I'll be aiight, girl
Then she said, thank you for everything

Verse:

Everything?
I'll get passed it
it was fun while it lasted
I know you don't care how I feel anymore
But keep this in mind if you see tears in my eyes

Chorus:

I'll be aiight, girl
(Go on baby just do your thing)
I'll be aiight. girl
(Don't worry about me)
Even though ,right now it's hurting me
(I'm sure you're fine)
I'll be aiight, girl
Then she said, thank you for everything
(x2)

Chorus
Track Name: No
Intro:
I'm tellin you, "no"..."no"..."no".

Chorus:
Wouldn't you know?
I was gonna wait for you but you was like, "no",
now, it's on me and I'm tellin' you, "no".
(You had a chance...)
And now I'm tellin' you, "no".
Could've been my #1 stunna but, no,
now you gonna' act like you ain't even know.

Verse 1:
(especially when they come back though you know what I'm sayin, they always talkin bout some,)
"Hey! I'm in your city next week. Let's grab a drink."
'Preciate it but, "no"..
I think you better lower your hopes.
I think you better give up the ghost.
Mama said, "she gonna' want you when you make some bread"
and what do you know?
I guess she wasn't telling a joke.
She commented a couple of posts.
She said, "what's wrong with you? you can't call nobody?"
Techincally, no. I never had a reason to call..
You never had a reachable phone.
Remember when a brotha was broke as a "unh"?
You never really gave me a go.
I was trying to make you my only one,
but you was like, "leave me alone!"

Chorus:
This coulda been avoided but no.
now, it's on me and I'm tellin' you, "no".
(You had a chance...)
And now I'm tellin' you, "no".
Could've been my #1 stunna but, no,
now you gon' act like you ain't even know.
(You had a chance...)

Verse 2:
Wouldn't you know?
Aye, it's funny how the cookie crumbles.
It's funny how it goes to show.
Karma's a son of a gun,
You'll always reap what you sow.
You never really told me why,
I really wanted to know
I was there for you in your darkest times, you always had a hand to hold.
Ooo you had a couple of toxic habits, I never once covered my nose.
'Didn't wanna see any tears, never really wanted the smoke.
I was trying to call you my baby, and tell you whole world you're my lady,
but you kept telling me, "no".
Now you got a jonz in your bonz.

Chorus:
This coulda been avoided but no.
now, it's on me and I'm tellin' you, "no".
(You had a chance...)
And now I'm tellin' you, "no".
Could've been my #1 stunna but, no,
now you gon' act like you ain't even know.
(You had a chance...)
