Pharrell & Migos Make A Jam Called Stir Fry. It’s Hot & Spicy Funk (Audio)
After dropping their chart-topping, Grammy-nominated sophomore record Culture at the top of 2017, Migos is back and ready to make waves once again with their follow-up sequel. The group’s first supporting single “MotorSport” saw a highly-publicized collaboration with both Cardi B and Nicki Minaj. Today, the group taps legendary Pharrell for their second single, “Stir Fry.”
Over a Bounce beat that recalls the playfulness of N*E*R*D’s latest record, NO ONE EVER REALLY DIES, Migos tag-team through their verses like butter. “In the kitchen, wrist twistin’ like a stir fry,” Quavo repeats for the track’s hook, layered just above Pharrell-backed funky synths, whistles, and jungle effects. The trio’s frantic delivery fit right into the beat. They weave through their bars and ad-libs like present-day Trap’s answer to Def Jam-era Beastie Boys. It’s brief, amusing, and thanks to a repetitive hook, it’s undeniably catchy.
Fans speculate Migos will drop Culture II at the top of 2018, with “Stir Fry” and “MotorSport” serving as the album’s only two confirmed tracks. With two Grammy nominations on the books (“Best Rap Album” and “Best Rap Performance”), Migos wastes no time showing their take on Culture without staying in one sonic place.
