You may know that Johnny Stimson has been under the mentorship of Elton John, but did you know that he’s one of the best R&B-pop artists ever?! After graduating with a finance degree, Stimson embarked on his only uphill music journey, and he hasn’t looked back since. It’d be remiss to ignore Stimson’s utterly delightful soundscapes, which we hear more of in his charming new single, “butterflies.”
After reflecting on the current state of the world, Stimson found it fitting to pen a hopeful song about perseverance and growth, which became “butterflies.” Decorated with swirly synths and irresistible vocals, “butterflies” transports us to a place of joy and optimism. By the end of this dreamy track, we just want to run along the sandy shore with butterflies chasing behind.
On “butterflies,” Johnny Stimson reflected,
“Feels like there’s been a cocoon around the whole world lately… Here’s a song about perseverance. It’s about feeling your way through the tough times, but not giving up. I think if we all keep holding on, we will all be even more beautiful on the other side. Like butterflies. Hope you like this one!!”
