Jack Harlow- “Come Home The Kids Miss You” Review

Jack Harlow- “Come Home The Kids Miss You” Review

It’s quite a shame that Jack Harlow compromised his talent in an attempt to appeal to a wider audience on Come Home The Kids Miss You. After building up a firm name with fun hits and a solid debut project with his 2020 album, That’s What They All Say, Harlow throws nearly all his integrity out the window as most of the tracks on his newest LP sound like simple knock-off Drake songs. Harlow’s energy is so faint throughout the entire album, which makes it hard to be engaged for its dreadful 45 minute running time. Jack’s laziness is reflected in everything from his passive delivery to his lackluster writing. He tries to be flirtatious through most of the tracks on this project, but it just ends up sounding like he’s doing his best Drake impression. Where Drake comes off smoothly and with finesse, Jack sounds thirsty and desperate. Tracks like “Nail Tech” and “Dua Lipa” still have the same swagger Harlow has built his brand off of, but these moments are thick and thin. The features on this album do nothing to save Jack as the performances from Pharrell Williams, Snoop Dogg, Lil Wayne, and Justine Timberlake come off just as tone-deaf as Jack does. The only saving grace in the feature department is Drake’s verse on “Churchill Downs,” which honestly hurts the rest of the album as it shows how poor of a job Jack has done at trying to sound like the man he’s inspired by. Overall this album falls flat in every regard, and it’s quite sad to see the quick downfall of such a bright name.
