Trippie Redd has been proving his worth of late, piecing together some of the strongest music of his career thus far. Having recently gained back a degree of musical swagger, the unconventional yet capable rapper slash vocalist impressed his loyal fans with A Love Letter To You 4 back in November. Now, with yet another album on the horizon, Trippie has kicked off the rollout with a new collaboration with PartyNextDoor, a man who recently took the Partymobile on a joyride.
Today, the debut single "Excitement" has surfaced in select international markets, with the full release landing at midnight. Insofar as the sonic direction, we're looking at a simmering melodic banger that's simultaneously up-tempo and slow-burning. Vocally, Trippie continues his habit of doing vocal runs that consist of his entire range, a trick that's honestly part of his charm. If you're not on board with his particular sound, it's unlikely this latest will convert you. But for those who have remained loyal to Redd's movement, it may very well signal yet another moment of artistic evolution for the Ohio rapper. Which side are you on?
Shawty, your body is so exciting
I love when you get on top and you ride it
Only in your ocean, you call me Hoseidon
