“Without U” is a big bass boom surrounded by high-pitched samples and danceable rhythms. It’s a dirty house tune thanks to production assists from DVBBS, but it’s 2 Chainz’s player-of-the-year lyrics that turn the temperature to heavy sweat.
The video features the three producers posing and headbanging in fancy portraits while the rapper mugs among dancing mannequins come to life. It’s colorful and crass, all the things that make a good dance punk song what it is. Check it out below, and look out for Steve Aoki’s incoming album Kolony out everywhere July 21.
