If you catch Bridget Kelly snoozing, don’t wake her up. As the Roc Nation soul songstress reveals on Street Dreamin’, a newly-released single off Funkmaster Flex‘s next compilation, she’ll take her reveries over reality any day of the week. Beatsmith Shea Taylor (one of Frank Ocean‘s collaborators on Channel Orange) sets an appropriately somnolent mood on the production tip, layering languid bell chords over a crisp, hip hop-infused rhythm section as Kelly describes the visions that play out behind her eyelids when she’s fast asleep. Assisting on the guest tip, Kendrick Lamar shares a page from his own dream journal on verse one. Feeling it? You’ll be able to find Street Dreamin’ and many more fresh cuts from a formidable lineup of big-name and emerging artists on Flex’s forthcoming Who You Mad At? Me or Yourself? mixtape. Keep it locked to the Booth for all the latest on the project, which as yet lacks a solid drop date.
