Sonny Digital is partially responsible for some of iLoveMakonnen's biggest hits, including "Tuesday" and "I Don't Sell Molly No More," so it's exciting to the two working together once again. Their latest effort is a little more subdued than the previously mentioned club records. "Leave It There" is a ballad at heart, but Sonny provides some driving sub-bass that keeps the momentum up throughout.
It's not without it's dynamics, however, as swirling synths come in-and-out, and drum programming goes from busy to tastefully restrained. The two seem to have a songwriting chemistry on a similar level to Mike WiLL and Future. Stick around 'til the end to hear Makonnen take the hook up a full octave and break through the established tension.
You've been acting sorta strange and kinda wild
I ain't even seen you lately, in a while
I think you've been trippin' bae, you should stop
You should just take it back from the start
