London production duo Snakehips have tabbed rising r&b and hip-hop stars Tinashe and Chance The Rapper on an infectious new single "All My Friends." The track has seemingly come out of nowhere. The biggest act Snakehips have worked with thus far is Tory Lanez, so this jump up to a combo of Tinashe and Chance The Rapper is a huge opportunity for these two.
The pair craft a subdued r&b beat with pop influences and occasional hints at the new-wave shimmering bass sounds that are commonplace from Australia. This acts as the bed for Tinashe to open up the track with her own verse, before launching into the chorus about a love-hate relationship with going out. Chance The Rapper joins her on the hook to make it much more singable. "All my friends are wasted/ And I hate this club, man I drink too much/ Another Friday night I've wasted."
Chance takes over with the same mixed message about the trappings of partying.
"I hit the bar / Pharmacy addict hit a Wall Street traffic to the car / We reinvent the wheel just to fall asleep at it, skrrr / Crash on the floor, catch the ZZZ's / Popping the polar opposite the NZT / Hip hop and the propaganda say they name brand / But I done seen how the drugs did my main man."
"All My Friends" it a low-key, feel key anthem for those who go out too much and can't resist the temptations of partying.
This song has the makings of a track that could easily be a viral hit and slowly percolate up the charts and onto the radio. With a smart push from Sony, this has a chance to do some real damage. Listen to the new song below and purchase it on iTunes.
