Not even a full month has passed since the release of a new single and the announcement that a new Santigold album is on the way, but it seems now the hip-hop/electro star isn’t messing around, and has released another new single taken from her forthcoming album titled 99¢.
Teaming up with none other than ILoveMakonnen, the pair have jumped on a Zed’s Dead beat to create Who Be Lovin’ Me; a hazy, chilled out singalong that doesn’t beat around the bush in regards to just how loved the two are around the world. Santigold and Trouble Andrew also stepped up for directing duties for the accompanying visuals, and chose to capture the track whilst at the Made In America festival recently. Featuring shots of Earl Sweatshirt, Meek Mill, A-Trak, Big Sean, Vic Mensa and more, Santigold and ILoveMakonnen get about backstage in a golf cart before driving it onto the actual stage to perform the track for their fans. It looks like an absolute hell of a time despite the relaxed, breezy nature of the track, and the pair prove to be a match made in musical heaven – representing the old and new guards in hip-hop but both working together in beautiful harmony.
Who Be Lovin’ Me is the second single from 99¢, which is due out January 22nd, 2016. The album’s debut single, Can’t Get Enough Of Myself, was the first taste of new Santigold material since her 2012 album, Master Of My Make-Believe (apart from a non-related release back in July of this year). For the Santigold faithful, January 22nd can’t come soon enough.
