It’s finally here.
Having teased the record on social media for some time now, Khalifa man drops the anticipated Something New ft. Ty Dolla $ign.
The chorus is really what carries the song, with many initially thinking it was Ty’s record, before he released Love U Better, and to be fair, this would have been far greater of an option than his current single, and the argument could be made that Wiz picked one of the best for himself, but at the same time, we know full well that once the rollout begins, and the visuals drop, Wiz’s stardom will only help propel this record further and many in the know are aware as Ty Dolla $ign has showed us consistently that he can churn these hits out on a regular. More on the track itself, it’s cool Wiz, like we’ve come to know, with his current relationship in the limelight, and the assisted social media campaign, the track is relevant and you can expect for all platforms to pick it up. Produced by Hitmaka (aka Yung Berg), who is really beginning to dictate the sound of late, it’s just such a laid back, easy listening joint, and will only grow stronger upon each listen.
With the audio racking up over a million plays in under 4 days, the official video is released, filled with some beautiful ladies and some big name cameos, from Demi Lovato down to Jamie Foxx, though visually top notch, the concept goes a bit left. It might be because I was thinking or hoping for Wiz to maybe focus it around his relationship, with their matching ensembles really getting a lot of attention, I just thought something along those lines, with the two would really follow up the snaps that somewhat raised the profile for the track, but instead, the pretty ladies are running game as they steal from the guests, including Juicy J, G-Eazy & Jason Derulo (to name a few). Close to half a mill within 24 hours, and it’s only going to continue further..
With a new album on the way, the Taylor Gang boss has got himself a sure hit to kick off his new album with, and we can expect a blend of this new maturity with the wildness for a dope audio experience.
