Erik Hassle’s “Talk About It” is an absolute belter of a pop song. It’s big and bold, it deals with love and heartbreak, but packs a chorus that needs to be screamed back by stadiums full of people. Did the song need a Vic Mensa verse? Not really, but the young Chicago rapper fits his verse to the theme, and the two styles work well together, suggesting that Hassle hooking up with rappers to provide hooks would not be a bad look for the young Swede.
