Mercy – [Grace Weber] ft. [Vic Mensa]

Singer-songwriter Grace Weber has been honing in on her forthcoming solo project, and she’s offered peeks at her creative process through a series of versatile singles over the past year. The latest song from the Milwaukee artist comes with an accompanying music video and features Chicago’s own Vic Mensa.

“Mercy” showcases the soulful singer-songwriter at her most vulnerable—a zone she clearly thrives in as evidenced by this track. Layers of delicate harmonies create a warm one-woman choir, providing the base to hold up Weber’s airy inflections. The song seems to come to a halt when Vic enters the picture, and he sounds at home as he starts to unravel the type of unbridled lyricism he’s always been capable of. It’s a refreshing feature on this track and accompanies Weber’s vocals perfectly. Chicago’s Carter Lang and The Social Experiment’s Nate Fox and Nico Segal produce the song with trained ears, making sure Weber’s voice remains the main attraction. The video for “Mercy” captures the same sense of human connection and forgiveness Weber writes about, and you can see it for yourself below:
