AUDIO: Swae Lee Sextasy MP3 + LYRICS
Swae Lee teased on Thursday that on Friday we would receive a “vibes fall.” Mike WiLL Made-It subtly gave details of what precisely this vibe fall would entail through an Instagram picture of his Interscope Records session. If you zoom in the bottom corner of the picture into the piece of paper, you see that we’re getting not one, but TWO Swae Lee songs today. This morning’s first offer of this drop of vibes was shared: a steamy song called “Sextasy.”
On the song, we discover the Rae Sremmurd member on some piercing drums and soulful piano doing his high-pitched crooning. Swae told Billboard back in December that Swaecation— his solo contribution to the triple album Rae Sremmurd’s 2018, SR3MM — was not as well received as he expected it would be. He assured fans, however, that he was preparing for Swaecation’s follow-up to the “most dumb solo project ever.” While “Sextasy” is definitely pleasant, it does not sound like too much of a departure from his earlier job influenced by R&B. Based on Virgil Abloh’s clips previewing the track on several of his DJ sets, the dance-assisted Drake, “Won’t Be Late”-which is falling later tonight-appears to be more than that.
