There’s no denying that Dreezy can sing. But if you have the nerve to question her rapping ability, you should definitely check out her latest single, “2nd to None.”
The 2 Chainz-assisted record finds the Chicago native spitting quick-fire bars over a Southside-produced beat. Her flow is steady, her lines are clever, and she’s reminding the world she can do more than R&B jams.
“I ain’t tripping off no nigga, bitch, no not at all/ I post a pic and make them sick, got bitches logging off / I’m taking blunts straight to the face, shit got me nodding off / Say I’m a headache but he just gon’ take a Tylenol,” she raps in her opening verse.
The song is expected to appear on Dreezy’s upcoming sophomore album. Her last full-length project, No Hard Feelings, arrived in the summer of 2016 and included guest appearances by Gucci Mane, Wale, T-Pain, and Jeremih. During a November interview with Billboard, the artist spoke about what she learned when making her debut album and how she will apply those lessons to its follow-up.
“I feel like with my album, it was real controlled. I feel like I'm just coming into my own right now […] It's like when you go into a dance class or something and they trying to teach you a routine and it's like you don't really get the steps, but once you got it, you really hitting that shit? It took me like a year to [grasp that concept],” she explained. “[…] So I feel like my growth since then has been just getting more business savvy, learning the game, definitely, and figuring out my sound. Now, I can listen back to the album and be like, ‘OK. This is what you should have done.’ Even though it was real controlled, this next one, I'm really going to be hands on with everything.”
While we wait for more information on Dreezy’s next album, you can listen to “2nd to None” now on Apple Music and iTunes or on Spotify.
2 Chainz is also expected to drop new material in the near future. Earlier this week, Tity Boi announced he and Lil Wayne have a collaboration on the way; however, it’s unclear if he’s referring to a single or a full-fledged project. Stay tuned.
