The song opens with a brief synth introduction before the arrangement breaks through with a funky pulsing bass, a steady drum beat, and a droning synth.

As the verse progresses, the instrumentals build and changes leading up to the transition to the chorus as Jerome shows of the range and capabilities of his voice.
“The Suits” is a powerful song that takes the perspective of those who are struggling financially, socially, and other wise in our society and describes their interactions with the wealthier people of society.
