Life is but a dream and love is what you make it, or is it the other way around? The whole world seems like fantasy when you press play on PnB Rock‘s “TTM,” a tune from the Philly hip-hop artist’s recent LP Catch These Vibes, featuring a verse from fellow PA don Wiz Khalifa and production credits from genre-bending LA producer NGHTMRE.
The latter brings easygoing tropical waves to the table with a bright and bubbly R&B rhythm — tinged with everyone’s favorite pop additive, natural dancehall flavors. It sounds like a love song, but “TTM” is the story of a relationship gone south. You can’t run your mouth and make up stories about your ex and not expect them to cop revenge in a catchy song.
“TTM” was originally intended as an original release for the dance producer, but PnB Rock fell so head over heels for it, he asked to add it to his official album track list. Catch These Vibes also features appearances from Smoke Purpp, Lil Yachty, Russ, A Boogie Wit a Hoodie, Ugly God, and 24 Hours, putting NGHTMRE in rather fine company.
If you need more NGHTMRE in your life, look out for his forthcoming EP NGHTMRE – II, featuring previously released singles “No Coming Down,” “On the Run” and “The Killer.” You can also catch him coming to a city near you soon, as he finishes 2017 with a series of North American dates. Check his full schedule and listen to him catch a pop-hop groove on “TTM” below.
