The song is a slow tempo rap song with Emo vibes, R&B flavor and alternative elements. Fawaz delivers textured vocals and at first listen is reminiscent to 2010s Lil Wayne. The essence of “DENIAL” however, follows a modern cocktail of popular sounds that all the kids are loving along the lines of the late Juice Wrld and in some moments, Post Malone. He walks through a twisted tale while serving up some punchlines that are comfortable while blessing listeners with a clingy hook.
Fawaz has developed a flawless mainstream hit that spans across several genres while speaking on personal experiences to a wide audience. “DENIAL” is a relatable track because it touches on painful topics of love, broken relationships and loneliness. Although the song is very emotional in its delivery, listeners cannot help but to feel vindicated as Fawaz comes to terms with the ultimate fate, breathing what seems to be a sigh of relief by the conclusion of the record. Despite the fact that “DENIAL” ventures to explore a painful situation and moody musings, what remains is a shimmer of hope that shines through the instrumentals, melodies and vocal harmonies. Fawaz is winning and we are here for this track.
