YG dropped off his latest album Stay Dangerous this past week, and the high energy project is exactly what fans expected from the West Coast representer. The reunion of YG and DJ Mustard is more than welcome, as the latter produced the majority of the project. Among the several bangers that DJ Mustard laid down for Stay Dangerous, the Quavo assisted cut “Slay” stands out as a smooth single.
“Slay” features a mellow instrumental that sounds like a nostalgic twist on 90’s R&B with a slight hint of West Coast aesthetic peppered into the swing. YG croons behind an autotune filter about a woman that has captured his attention, while Quavo takes both second verse and chorus duties.
Shawty you bad, shawty you bad
Atlanta ass, I fly to Atlanta fast
Slide in it, hit you with the swag
That BM, BM swag, swag, swag
We could slide down P street
I’m from LA, girl, you know I got that woo-wee
But my savages don’t P street
I’ma act like I don’t see you, just act you don’t see me
