Mac Miller is getting ready to drop his fourth studio album; he made the announcement as he was chatting with Beats 1’s Zane Lowe yesterday. September 16 is the chosen release date for ‘The Divine Feminine’, the follow up to 2015’s critically acclaimed ‘GO:OD AM’. You can pre-order the album if you’re a Mac Miller fan and are wondering if you can or if you’re a beat freak who knows what’s good for you. There’s an appetizer for this new helping of EZ Mac and it takes the form of a sumptuous funk cut simply titled ‘Dang!’.
It’s not often you’ll find the Pittsburgh rapper as mellow as he is in this cut, delving into the ups and downs of his love affair. “We be fighting, we be reuniting/kiss me touch me, tease me…” he vents before Anderson .Paak takes over on the soulful hook. The drums, percussion, warm keys and synth make for a piece of music that fits just as well in your headphones as it does in your kitchen stereo or the dancefloor. Even without the knowledge that The Divine Feminine will feature the likes of piano wizard Robert Glasper and the multiple Grammy Award-winning Kendrick Lamar, this song should be enough to make you lust for the album intensely.
