Just before summer officially began the revamped ‘Ghostbusters’ hit movie screens around the US and the rest of the world. It follows the usual zero-to-hero Hollywood movie scripting but it has a few interesting twists and is quite funny- don’t worry I’m not gonna spoil it for you if you haven’t watched it yet. In fact, our focus is on the movie soundtrack, which was released July 15. This 14-song accompaniment for the $150 million-grossing flick featured the likes of Zayn Malik, DMX, 5 Seconds of Summer and Wolf Alice. It also had a song by fast-rising Oakland rapper G-Eazy who started out as a producer and only released his major label debut in 2015. Released on RCA, ‘These Things Happen’ climbed to number 3 on the Billboard 200, marking G-Eazy out as a force to be reckoned with. His sophomore, ‘When It’s Dark Out’ caused as much of a splash, cementing Gerald Gillum’s place on the hip hop map.
It’s therefore no surprise that he was tapped up for the making of the Ghostbusters soundtrack, and he obliged with ‘Saw It Coming’. The song tells the story of G-Eazy’s unexpected rise from a no-name wannabe to a genuine contender for the rap throne, telling naysayers that they should have ‘Saw It Coming’. Handling the hook, which borrows from the timeless Ghostbusters theme song, is R&B phenom Jeremih. The two artists are apparently ghosts in the newly released Saw It Coming visual and slowly morph into their more hideous selves as the song wears on. G-Eazy turns into an apparition which will be familiar to guys who have watched the movie. Like all other monsters which face off with the Ghostbusters, he ends up sucked in and trapped in the ghost capture device.
