Later this month, Action Bronson will drop his highly-anticipated major-label debut, Mr. Wonderful, through Vice/Atlantic Records. Already we’ve heard previews in “Easy Rider”, “Actin Crazy”, and “A Light in the Addict”. Now, the New York rapper’s let loose “Baby Blue”, his collaborative track with Chance the Rapper, produced by Mark Ronson.
Premiered on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 program, it’s a soulful mid-tempo jam that sees Bam Bam lamenting a relationship gone awry. “Why you always all on my back, why you gotta do me like that?” he says during the chorus, offering up a rarely seen vulnerable side to the otherwise braggadocious MC/foodie.
Meanwhile, Chance does his part towards the song’s end, delivering matter-of-fact lines perfect for a breakup letter that’s both silly and spiteful: “I hope you get a paper cut from a razor”; “I hope every soda you drink is already shaken up”; “I hope there’s always snow on your driveway.” Listen in below.
Mr. Wonderful arrives on March 24th and features additional production from The Alchemist, Fuse, and 88 Keys. Last week, Action premiered the video for “Actin’ Crazy” here.
