I’m tempted to make this entire post one very long pun about CHYLD and Ronnie Lott’s new song “ur a puzzle” being the missing puzzle piece that I needed, but don’t worry, I won’t. Instead, I’ll just say that CHYLD is back with what is in my opinion his best release to date. The Boston based producer and multi-instrumentalist welcomed San Antonio raised MC, Ronnie Lott, onto this song, and boy am I glad he did! Lott’s confident flow paired with his cheeky lines like “We go together like schoolwork and students at Princeton” makes for a perfect topline for CHYLD’s synth-filled track.
Both of these artists are on the rise, CHYLD leaning a bit more into the Electronic lane and Ronnie Lott into Hip-Hop. I was previously unfamiliar with Ronnie Lott’s work, but I have been a frequent listener of CHYLD’s for a bit, so I expected to hear more melancholy, contemplative lyrics. However, I was pleasantly surprised to hear them sing about the fun and upbeat topic of meeting a new crush. This Hip-Hop jam has buzzy synths, a groove fit for dancing, and flirty lyrics perfect for the summertime.
