Smif-N-Wessun is coming through with a new album later this month which serves as their first project in a hot minute. The anticipation is high as they’ve been teasing the project with new singles and confirmed that 9th Wonder would be heavily involved in it. As they inch towards their first project since 2011, they come through with a brand new single titled, “Ocean Drive.”
Smif-N-Wessun recruits Musiq SoulChild & Rapsody for their new single, “Ocean Drive.” The track features smooth soulful production that all four artists go in on. It’s a love track dedicated to the loyalty and commitment from a relationship. The two rappers explained the significance of the song in a recent interview.
“‘Ocean Drive’ is a modern-day Bonnie and Clyde style ode to relationships; reminiscent of Tupac or Jay-Z and Beyonce’s ‘Me And My Girlfriend.’ Although not your typical love song, it highlights the bond we have with a best friend and or closest rider,” they told AFH. “This track accommodates our straightforward vocals as we each reaffirm our loyalty with our significant others; thanking them for always be down to ride for their ‘man.’ Rapsody offers her always fresh perspective from a ladies’ point of view, and Musiq Soulchild adds the finishing touches with his soulful plea. This is the perfect tune to groove to while cruising down Ocean Drive in Miami with your partner, or any drive for that matter.”
Me and more, is she that I adore?
Got a cheque, and blew it in the Louis store
Paper planes, goin’ back and forth
Take another hit and blow the ashes off
