Mac Miller & CeeLo Green Conjure Some Soul Music To Calm The Storm (Audio)
Three weeks ago, Mac Miller announced he was releasing his next album in September. Titled The Divine Feminine, Miller described the LP as “an album that’s all about the journey that is love.” Since then, he has delivered on that promise, commencing with the song and video for “Dang!,” a groovy collaboration with Anderson .Paak about a couple that continues to butt heads, even though they are in love. Today (8/18), Miller releases his second song from the album and it is another joint effort, this time with Goodie Mob and Gnarls Barkley member, CeeLo Green coming in with the assist.
“We” seems to pick up where “Dang!” left off. Miller raps about arguing with his mate, but, rather than being in the heat of the moment, as was the case with “Dang!,” “We” takes place during one of those moments between spats, where he seeks to maintain the peace. Like “Dang!,” “We” also is soulful, but instead of the rolling Disco bounce featured on the first single, the follow up is a slow and laid-back groove. Save for some ad libs toward the end of the song, CeeLo’s contribution is seamlessly built into the background, throughout.
Thus, far both of Mac’s releases are fully in line with the vision of The Divine Feminine that he described. It will be interesting to see how the story unfolds in full context.
