Wiz Khalifa Releases 'Burn Slow' Featuring Rae Sremmurd Ahead of New Album
As promised, Wiz Khalifa and Rae Sremmurd have joined forces on a recently released track appropriately titled "Burn Slow." The drop comes ahead of the "Come Get Her" duo's new album.
Wiz is back with another stoner anthem with production from Mike WiLL Made-It. He shows off his various flows and slick bars while Slim Jimmy and Swae Lee take hook duty over minor-key synths and hi-hats.
"I got my own strain, it come with my name / Go straight to the brain, your sh*t ain't the same / A different lane, we sipping champagne / I been in the game, just give me a flame / She looking for change, I'm rolling up Jane / I'm balling insane, got more than six rings / In love with my slang, I'm puffing a J / A hundred a day, come up with a play," Wiz raps.
Swae Lee hinted at the release of "Burn Slow" back in June during an interview with Bay Area radio station KMEL at the BET Awards. He also announced plans to drop a new project close to the year's end.
"New album coming in like December," Swae Lee said. "We got a few collabs dropping. We just dropped that 'Blase' with Ty Dolla $ign and Future on it. We bout to drop 'Burn Slow' with Wiz Khalifa...These aren't even on the album, these are just random songs we're about to drop."
Rae Sremmurd released their debut album at the beginning of the year back in January. The album features hit singles including "No Type," "This Could Be Us" and "Throw Sum Mo" featuring Nicki Minaj and Young Thug. SremmLife debuted at No. 1 on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, selling 34,000 in the week ending Jan. 11, according to Nielsen Music.
Wiz Khalifa is also preparing to release a new album, a sequel to 2011's Rolling Papers, which spawned the chart-topping hit, “Black and Yellow.” He first announced Rolling Papers 2: The Weed Album back in May via Twitter.

No word on when fans can hear the project in its entirety but hopefully the release of "Burn Slow" means sooner than later although it is unclear where the track will end up.
