SaveMoney's Joey Purp is getting in on the musical action by dropping a huge one with his fellow Chicagoan artist, Chance the Rapper. The Knox Fortune-produced "Girls @" kicks off with a savage beat, popping off immediately with production quirks before Purp leans in with an earworm of a chorus that calls out the girls "with the Birkin bags, Mercedes Benz." There's also an incredible Destiny's Child reference that comes in the middle of his savory bars, providing the perfect ice-breaker that could pick anyone up.
Soon enough, SaveMoney's own Chance the Rapper shows up with the perfect verse to get a girl's number before calling on the tall girls, the small girls, and the mid-size girls in his own mind-warping deliverance of a verse.
"I made the beat in front of Joey last fall, and we pretty much immediately knew it was a single," Fortune told Complex. "I've been playing this song out at parties without Chance's verse for the past half a year and everyone would always ask me, 'What was that one Joey song you played?' so its great to have it finished and shared with the world."
This song will be included on Joey Purp's forthcoming project, iiiDrops, which is dropping later this month. Previously, Purp shared his Saba and theMIND collaboration, "Cornerstone," which was flushed with trumpets and introspective bars about confronting racism and incarceration. These features aren't the only ones Purp has up his sleeve. He has also recruited Mick Jenkins, fellow SaveMoney member Vic Mensa, along with production from Thelonious Martin, Donnie Trumpet, Peter Cottontale, and more.
There is no denying the ear-slapping power of Joey Purp's latest. Check out "Girls @" and peep the full iiiDrops tracklist below before it drops May 27. You can also catch him at Chicago’s famed venue, The Metro, June 10 for his first headlining show.
