Action Bronson is gearing up for his upcoming second album (but first on a major label) Mr Wonderful. Baby Blue is the fourth single we’ve heard so far, out of a total 13 tracks. I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s noticed how different, and excellent, each track has been thus far. I am SO excited for this album.
Once again, we’re drawn into Bronson’s oily flow and his funny, at times vulgar train of thought lyrics. He’s always shown a knack for gorgeous backing loops, but this one’s been produced by Mark Ronson, so it’s one of his best ever. The simply, bluesy music creates a smooth atmosphere – the perfect antidote to Bronson’s harshly worded one-liner-heavy drawl.
Chance The Rapper‘s raspy choruses and guest verse are stellar, as always. And then there’s that trumpet bridge, oh my!
Mr Wonderful comes out on March 24 via Atlantic Records / Vice Records
