“‘On Point’ is all about being sharp and withstanding the test of time!” says Malcolm, who fills the song with trap beats, a cyclical piano hook, and shoutouts to iconic quarterback Tom Brady. “Defying the odds is never easy,” he continues, “but a sharp mind can overcome any obstacle. The greatest QB and my favorite football player being Tom Brady, I couldn’t help but use the best as the metaphor.”
“On Point” follows the release of All Is True, an EP whose five tracks have earned nearly 700,000 Spotify streams. If that EP found Malcolm focusing on songs about truth, then “On Point” finds him focusing on tenacity. He raps about his day-to-day work ethic and his God-given talent, splitting the song’s verses with KB along the way. Given the multiple mentions of Tom Brady, it’s no coincidence that “On Point” sometimes feels like the hip-hop equivalent of an athlete’s comments during a pre-game interview. Here, Steven Malcolm is limber, laced up, and ready to take the field.
“This record is all about high energy and motivation for anyone who is looking to be focused!” he explains.
