Producer: Benny Blanco/Stargate
On the first single from his upcoming sophomore (major label) album, we find Wiz following a familiar but successful formula. He starts the song with a hard, flashy verse and then transitions into singing mode for the hook. The record doesn't hide its pop ambitions, which is fine, considering Wiz has established himself as a borderline master of crossover appeal. The approach worked this time, too. "Work Hard, Play Hard" is certified gold and a remix with Lil Wayne and Drake is on the way.
