The newest track follows two previously-released singles from the LP – the Frank Ocean and Migos-assisted “Slide” and “Heatstroke” with Pharrell, Young Thug, and Ariana Grande. “Rollin” is another feel-good, summertime jam that basically follows a similar soundscape to that of “Slide“; Calvin‘s laid-back production backs Khalid‘s soulful hooks and provides proper aid to Future‘s energetic rhymes much in the same way as the composition of “Slide” complemented Frank‘s vocals and Migos‘ verses.
“I’ve been rollin’ on the freeway/ I’ve been riding 85/ I’ve been thinking way too much/ And I’m way too gone to drive,” Khalid sings on-top of the funky, chilled-out groove. “I’ve got anger in my chest/ I’ve got millions on my mind/ And you didn’t fit the picture/ So I guess you weren’t the vibe.”
Calvin is single handedly bringing this kind of music to the masses and starting the funk-pop revolution. I am thrilled – LAWD knows we need it!
“Rollin” (feat. Future & Khalid) is also available on Apple Music now!
