B.o.B hasn’t always been comfortable at the top—in fact, his music depicts him struggling with the demands of fame and success on a pretty much constant basis—but fans shouldn’t get it twisted; the ATL representative is damn proud to have made it this far. On Arenas, the fifth single off his second studio album, Bobby Ray gives himself a much-deserved pat on the back as he revisits the years of struggle that preceded his conquest of the game. Over Dr. Luke and Cirkut‘s stark, guitar-laced production, the headliner is joined by Grand Hustle head honcho T.I. and heavyweight hookman Chris Breezy. A currently unknown director provides understated visuals to accompany the record. Released in May, Strange Clouds is available for purchase now in stores and online.
