It hasn't even been a full week since Darkest Before Dawn dropped and Pusha T is already teasing us with potential tracks off of King Push. The rapper dropped a teaser yesterday featuring Pharrell and just like the previous collaborations between these two, it sounds magical. Ok, maybe not magical, but we surely can't wait until the full track drops. Take a listen to the teaser for "Switch It Up," below.
Pusha's Darkest Before Dawn released on Friday and it received great reviews. With small features from Kehlani, Beanie Sigel, Jill Scott and more, the album was a great listen off the bat. The production from Puff Daddy, Timbaland and J. Cole definitely took it up some notches. But Pusha stole the show with lyrics like, "My skin is triple black, I'm the omen/You can't kill a God like the Romans, uh/Take my time to craft sh*t/'Cause I don't like back and forths with Puff about rap sh*t." The album gives you a closer glimpse into the life of Pusha T and what makes him tick.
To match the perfectly put together album, Pusha also released a short film. The film directed by Kid Art is about 22 minutes long and features tracks off of the album. It symbolizes Pusha's past life in the drug game and the downfalls that come with it. Watch it below.
Though Pharrell isn't on Darkest Before Dawn, he is listed as a collaboration during the credits of the short film. Back in 2013, Pusha informed Miss Info that he would be going into a 20-day studio session with the Neptunes to work on King Push. This could most definitely be the start to the exposure of that session. We will patiently have to wait and see.
