GTTM: Goin Thru the Motions
PnB Rock’s album GTTM: Goin Thru the Motions runs the line of R&B and rap. This album varies from his first release album RNB3, as it focuses more on evoking the emotion of the singer’s feelings about women, hooking up and possibly love. Many of the tracks discuss the contemporary issues within relationships including the confusion of not wanting labels of traditional boyfriend/girlfriend but still not wanting to have the other with another person. PnB Rock notably uses a lot of auto-tune, but it works in a way to create an enveloping feeling to his voice. The auto-tune draws out his voice, meshing well with the mellow dropping beats. PnB Rock has several collaborations on the album including with Wiz Khalifa (“Attention”), Ty Dolla $ign (“Hanging Up My Jersey”), and Boogie Wit da Hoodie (“Stand Back” and “Playa No More”). The album was extremely cohesive with beats, themes, and tones. The overarching themes solidified the questions about love, maturity and the meaning of moving from temporary to long-term companionship.
