Wiz Khalifa Goes R&B on ‘Promises’: Listen
By Marissa G. Muller
Wiz Khalifa is adding to the list of R&B songs named promise – Ciara’s “Promises,” Jagged Edge’s “Promise” among them – with his latest single.
“Promise,” the fourth look at his upcoming album Blacc Hollywood, has Wiz rapping and singing.
The Jim Jonsin-produced track opens with some singing and moves into him spitting out this first verse: “Smokin’ one and rollin’ one / I come and break you down for fun / You love when I get up in it and / Kiss your body when I’m finished.”
A few months ago, Khalifa talked to RapUp about his third studio album, saying, “Blacc Hollywood in general is gon’ be sonically something that people kinda expect, but it’s like they want it, so it’s gonna be a good thing for me to deliver.”
Wiz will be joined on the album by Ty $ign, Project Pat and Juicy J, Curren$y, Ghost Loft and Chevy Woods. The album is due out Aug. 19.
