In Justin Michael William’s newly remixed single “Here With Me,” we hear the shards of pain as he hopes for his love lost to return as he struggles to come to face with himself in a world that does not always make it easy to do so.
The fresh take on the track was remixed by Sol Rising and places a more sonic and trap vibe on a gut wrenching melody. By doing so, Justin conveys the meaning of love lost and self-acceptance with a whole new undertone. In summary, the album “Metamorphosis” channels classic elements of love, loss, and self-acceptance and is a brilliant examination of the human experience through Justin’s eyes.
