070 Shake, “Accusations”

070 Shake
“Accusations”

Digital Single (G.O.O.D. Music)
Kanye’s G.O.O.D. Music has been around for almost 15 years and has produced exactly one bona-fide star: Travis Scott. Aside from him, you’ve got perpetual nearly man Big Sean, professional mumbler Kid Cudi, and Teyana Taylor whose biggest musical moment involved dancing in a someone else’s music video. Not great, Kanye. Not great.

For that reason, I’ve been a little slow on the 070 Shake bandwagon. Sure, her performances on Kanye’s turgid new album were just about the only bright spots, but we’ve seen plenty of newcomers steal a track on a Kanye project then never get anywhere near that again (hi, Desiigner?). However, this moody, starry-eyed new single is starting to convince me to get on board. Something about her voice and delivery is convincing in a way that someone like Post Malone could never be, but her sing-song delivery scratches many of the same angsty itches that has made Post such a star. And that’s good news for G.O.O.D. Music.
