Album: What a Time to Be Alive

Despite Drake being a few years late on the whole Robitussin thing, “Jumpman” became the runaway hit from he and Future’s joint album, What a Time To Be Alive. Metro, who had a hand in eight of the record’s 11 songs, generates a fierce, propulsive sense of momentum. Stray shoutout to DJ Mustard aside, the song tips its hand toward the producer’s direction over the next year: the manipulation of tempo and ambient bass that would culminate on Savage Mode, his collaboration with 21 Savage.
