After the brash aggression of his star-making hit, Que’s been on something of a slick R&B flirtation tip: last month he tapped the butter-voiced August Alsina for “Diamonds,” the first cut off his upcoming Can U Digg It mixtape. Yup, Que’s posing a question that everyone in the tech world asked themselves a few years ago.
Today he released “Standout”, a bouncy, synthy slice of spaceship-take-off music. Riding shotgun is Taylor Gang’s most lovable sleaze ball Ty Dolla $ign: his AutoTuned purr provides the hydrogen propulsion systems for lift-off.
Who doesn’t feel like a “standout b*tch” when those twinkling chords come whooshing into view like a nebula glimpsed through the cockpit view-screen? I do, that’s for sure.
Can U Digg It is slated for release on Aug. 19.
