Just ahead of competing at the Grammy Awards with five nominations on Jan. 26, H.E.R. called on a superstar cast to elevate her “Slide (Remix),” which dropped Thursday (Jan. 15). Instead of having YG on the assist, Pop Smoke, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie and Chris Brown bring a different flavor to the West Coast record.
Pop Smoke changes up his rugged flow with a much more warmhearted tone than we’re used to hearing from him to complement his sultry verse. “Baby, I’m gangsta, gentleman in disguise/ Just came home, after doin’ some time/ Let me move your knee, now just read between the lines/ Just read between the lines/ Yeah, it’s six in the morning and I’m tryna get you, baby,” he gently raps.
Following a steamy assist from A Boogie, C. Breezy takes the steering wheel and attempts to woo his love interest by making sure she knows he’s the one for her. “I got Benz, I got Ghost, I’m the man, I’m the G.O.A.T./ Makin’ angels in the snow, don’t keep playin’ with your nose/ Take a stroll down the coast, South of France/ We in Cannes, let me drive boat,” Brown croons.
After taking home a pair of Grammys in 2019, H.E.R. looks to add to her growing collection of accolades and trophies at the 62nd annual Grammy Awards on Jan. 26.
