“Nothing But Me” is a bad ass vocal with a bad ass groove! Adam Cruz continues his development as a super talented producer and vocalist. From his new “Life and Times” Deluxe Edition LP, “Nothing But Me” is the story of a musician who is trying to make it in music business and the honest sentiments that are told in this context. While this tune is certainly a declaration of passionate persistence, “Nothing But Me” is also the realization that self-actualization is the key to that desired success. This track’s fat and heavy bass line as its centerpiece adds a wonderful level of intrigue while the synth pads add vulnerability. Is the character in this song boldly confident about his prospects for becoming a star or is there uncertain within the meaning?

I calm my eyes and hope it soothes
‘cause I know how hard it's been living my truth

My passions you always support
You've seen the years go by with no rewards

and we still behind on the bills it all seeems so old
Like a poloroid film

But I'm gonna be famous, the star of my scene
and you already know the deal

I can't be nothing but me
I'm serious

I can't be nothing but me
So serious

I see beyond my money blues
and I plan to make it buy you every jewel

and I need your heartbeats next to me
can't do this without you don't ever leave

and I try to do the best that I can do for you
like Angela Bolfill

and I'm already famous, the star of my scene
and you already know the deal

I can't be nothing but me
I'm serious

I can't be nothing but me
So serious

With all that we've all been through
I know that we gon' do the best we can do
We've got guidance on us
shining strength from up above
there's no other way we're making it to

the top is where I've always strive to be
numero uno spot claim victory
ours for the taking if we work real hard
never ever changing who we are
