Desiigner Drops New Single “Moon People”

It’s been an incredible six months for G.O.O.D. Music’s newest sensation Desiigner. His first single, Panda, may have dropped way back in December, but thanks to word of mouth, frequent airplay and a host of remixes, the track currently sits atop the Billboard 100 chart, keeping Drake and his latest album, VIEWS, from the coveted number one spot. While he’s won a heap of fans he’s also courted controversy with his Future-esque sound, causing many to claim he’s biting the Atlanta native’s style. Nevertheless, Desiigner’s star continues to rise, with the New Yorker dropping his long awaited second single Moon People over the weekend.

If anyone caught Desiigner’s impressive acoustic freestyle for Tim Westwood last week, then you’ll be familiar with some of the lyrics from Moon People. The Macktasticv produced track features a typical trap beat and a guest rap from Boyd, with the chorus,“Moon walking / seeing moon people. Moon walking / seeing moon people,” another infectious refrain.

The big question is whether Moon People will be as big a hit as Panda? Personally, I highly doubt it. That’s not to say it’s a track you can’t vibe too, but it certainly doesn’t have the immediate impact of Panda. It also won’t help dispel the Future comparisons, as the two have never sounded more alike than on Moon People. Either way, Desiigner continues to create great music and that’s all we can ask for.
