After months of teasers and snippets floating around social media, XXXTentacion and Lil Pump‘s highly anticipated posthumous collab “Arms Around You” arrived on Thursday (Oct. 25). The uptempo track features vocal assists from Swae Lee and Colombian singer Maluma, and was produced by Skrillex, Mally Mall and JonFX.
X implements an intoxicating flow mixed with some Spanish over the Mally Mall and Jon FX production, handling the reggaeton-tinged track’s chorus duties. “Arms around you/ Te amo mami, let me hold you/ Wrap me arms right around you, girl, oh yeah/’Cause I been wrapped up around you/ To make sure no one could harm you/ Dale, mami, let me have you,” he warbles.
The Rae Sremmurd frontman takes the reigns with another sultry verse. “If you ever get to feel my touch/ Then you might never get enough/ Yes, I know you feel the ambiance (Ambiance, hey)/ Love you like I’ll never see you again,” Swae majestically croons.
Lil Pump originally teased the tune in an Instagram post over the summer (Aug. 1), sharing X’s involvement along with the song’s title and producers behind the beat. “ARMS AROUND YOU. LIL PUMP FT XXXTENTACION (Prod by Jon FX & Mally mall) #LLJ,” the Florida native wrote.
