We’re heavy in the middle of 2 Chainz season again (did it even end?). The dude has appeared on new tracks from Tinie Tempah, R. Kelly and Drake in recent days, and now he has dropped “Where U Been?” It’s another new track off his forthcoming sophomore album B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time (out September 10), which also features “Feds Watching.”
There are lots of good things to talk about with this latest cut. First, there’s the hook (“I been gettin’ money / Where the fuck you been?”), delivered in 2 Chainz’ preferred mode of vocalization, the playful yell. There’s the Mike WiLL Made It beat, which matches ominous bass with woozy music box twinkles. Lastly, there’s Cap 1‘s ridiculous rapid-fire verse — unless he has gills, we’re not entirely sure how he fit any breaths in there. While there’s nothing here as instantly hilarious as Tity Boi’s sneezy “Givenchy! / Nigga, god bless you” line in Drake’s “All Me,” it’s still a worthy addition to the ever-expanding 2 Chainz catalog.
Hear it below.
