TDE songstress SZA is back with “Childs Play,” another cut from her forthcoming Z EP (out April 8). We already know Mac Miller has a credit on the release, and for this song SZA enlists the help of Chicago MC Chance The Rapper.
For the uber-chill track, SZA softly coos over XXYYXX‘s clonazepam beat, dropping a few Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat references in before Chance comes in halfway through to deliver a typically squealing, herky-jerky verse that contrasts with the ethereal arrangement. To close out the song, the two playfully harmonize.
