Metro Boomin has a lot a celebrate. After kicking off 2017 with production on Migos‘ Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 “Bad & Boujee,” Boomin hasn’t slowed down and even notched another hit producing for Future‘s “Mask Off.” To celebrate his 24th birthday, Metro Boomin gifted fans on Sunday night (Sept. 17) with a new track titled “Blue Pill” featuring Travis Scott.
Boomin took to his Twitter to unleash the new track, writing “took a few years off but we back” and later used the hashtag #daysafter, causing fans to believe the hashtag alludes to one of Scott’s forthcoming projects.
Scott’s hoarse, smokey rap-sing croons blend seamlessly with the thumping bassline and haunting melody Boomin laid down. “That’s why I’m floatin’ off that blue pill, blue dream/It got me like I-I-I-I-I/ I’m a rockstar rollin’, Shabba I got ranks,” the “Butterfly Effect” rapper says in a distorted voice. He raps about popping Xans and partying with him, warning that its hard to keep up with his rockstar lifestyle.
Boomin and Scott’s history dates back to the Houston rapper’s mixtape, Days Before Rodeo, where Boomin co-produced on “Mamacita,” and Rodeo cuts like “3500” and “Nightcrawler.”
