With all the new Rae Sremmurd and Rae Sremmurd-adjacent new music this year is bringing us, it's tempting to just quit my job and become a full-time Sremm scholar. I might do that.
The latest single from the duo’s upcoming three-chapter project, "Chanel," premiered on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 show Thursday. The cut features Pharrell and Swae Lee, meaning you should immediately stream it above or below or wherever it is you find music.
"I just left the studio at like 6 o'clock this morning and took like a five-hour nap and I'm back up," Jxmmi, who inadvertently removed the social stigma surrounding naps with that statement, told Lowe Thursday. As Lowe hinted at in their discussion, Pharrell's tone and delivery on this track is in another stratosphere. For Jxmmi, that's just Pharrell finding his place in this track's universe. "That is Chanel P right there," he said. Chanel for real."
The refreshingly ambitious third entry in the SremmLife franchise is expected to drop at any moment. Young Thug, the Weeknd, Zoë Kravitz, Future, Juicy J, and Travis Scott are among the triple-disc's confirmed features.
Speaking with Rolling Stone earlier this week, Swae characterized Sr3mm's importance as rooted in its status as a historical document. "Everyone's gonna hear this album and know that real rock stars lived on the Earth at the same time they did," he said. Truth.
