I never thought of Jeezy as the kind of guy who’d be big on crying, and it turns out my intuition was correct. Though you won’t catch him shedding No Tears, there’s pain beneath his steely facade, as he reveals on the latest single off his fifth LP. This record is more pop-oriented than you’d expect both from Jeezy and the man behind the boards. Mike WiLL Made it eschews block-rocking trap beats in favor of an airy, anthemic keyboard groove driven by a leisurely break. Future lends his trademark Auto-Tuned vocals to the hook, and an unknown director handles the official visuals, shot in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Seen It All: The Autobiography is set to drop September 2. In the meantime, of course, we’ll keep you supplied with the latest singles and videos.
