Rooty Doo-Wop from Texas
This cute song combines elements of doo-wop, dream pop, R&B, and roots/reggae into something entirely unique, singing about (of all things) a longing for Texas. It's almost as if Citizen Cope wrote a song for the Mamas and the Papas. The hook repeats "7134213, that's where my heart is. 7134213, break my neck, looking back to Texas," with various body parts substituted for the singer's neck. Bizarre, because if you asked most Americans to think of a song about someone longing for Texas, at least 99% of them would probably think of something radically different than this--aka, some lonesome valley country tune. "Back To Texas", by contrast, is hip, urban, smooth, and sexy. And Arjay's not even from Austin...he's from Dallas. Go figure. Still, its an infectious tune with a beautiful sway to it. I have no idea what 7134213 is referring to, as it seems to be neither related to a zip code nor a phone number. If anyone figures it out, please let me know.
"Back To Texas" is reminiscent of well-known artists such as Citizen Cope
