Buddy enlists Ty Dolla $ign for his latest single "Hey Up There." The song bears both a spirit of positivity and melancholy in its arrangement. Bouncy keys introduce the song. Soon after, the main melody drops into half-time and resonates in a whole octave below the introduction, setting the mood for the track's laid-back vibe. The bounciness is reintroduced later to keep the pace. The production is pretty beautiful in its simplicity. On top of that, Buddy's vocals are strong and compelling as he delivers the harmonized hook. His singing is as convincing as his rapping. Ty Dolla Signs slides into the second half of the first verse with the raspy variety of his signature vocals. The track offers visions and dreams of the future and serves it will a healthy amount of the real and the tasteful.
If you dig this vibe, make sure you listen to Buddy's "Trouble On Central." The funky track dropped last month.
Hey up there, I'm on my way up
Tell the radio to play us
Blame it on the place I grew up
Hit the landmine and I blew up
