At times you need to remind yourself how much in love your are with…yourself. And who better to provide you with the soundtrack for your self-love session than Quelle Chris, an artist who loves to speak his mind on wax. On this song he takes time to profess his love for himself over a turgid funk track driven by a sleepy bassline. Here are some of the sweet nothings Chris dedicates to himself:
“I f**k with myself, I f**ks with myself, might bring myself some flowers, I’m in love with myself. I look in the mirror like who is that n*gga I’m cool with that n*gga…I take myself out for drinks, myself and I lit…”
That might just be the most times you’ve heard “myself” in a song so there’s no need to stress the point of the message. Perhaps we can say something about the singer, or rapper in this case. Last time we heard from Chris was spring last year he was getting ready to drop third album with Mello Music, ‘Innocent Country‘. That murky, deeply introspective effort earned him props in a number of publications, giving the Detroit rapper and MMG the fuel for yet another LP. This as yet untitled album is set for sometime in 2017, but ‘Buddies’ gives us a good idea of the direction Chris is taking this time.
We can also give a mention to producer Ayepee, without whom Chris wouldn’t have that lazy, bass-heavy, funk-infused template on which to work his magic.
