Sammy Adams is digging deeper for the ultimate glow-up anthem on his latest single “Shining.”

According to “Boston’s Boy” himself, the song is about “believing in yourself, staying positive through good times and the bad, and finding someone or something that can help you be the best version of yourself.”

In the first single from Adams since last year’s “Where You Are” and his debut album, The Long Way, we find the rapper in his groove with a danceable beat and thumping drums and bass. Adams deftly cuts to the theme of finding the shine of a diamond in the rough with slick wordplay and a passionate delivery.

Catch “Shining” and many more from Adams during his set at the Billboard Hot 100 Music Festival this Sunday (Aug. 20). Tickets are available here.

Check out “Shining” exclusively on Billboard below before its wide release this Friday.
