It’s no glitch in the Matrix, audiophiles; the déjà vu you’re feeling is purely natural. Duke grad Mike Posner has again dressed up his ode to elitism in a third rendition of his hit Cooler Than Me (Single Mix). Since the radio finally started noticing that vocal uniqueness and catchy production were worthy of rotation, Posner has been on it like Woods in a brothel. While this one forgoes the Gigamesh production (and the Big Sean feature) as we heard on previous versions, it still keeps the summer mood flowing freely with Posner’s own quickly paced and synth heavy production, which he laces with semi-whispered vocals that drive home the same, direct message: “I’ve got you all figured out, you meet everyone’s eyes just to feel seen..nobody even knows who you are, who do you think that you are?” If you’re enjoying Posner’s latest effort you can cop the original on his One Foot Out the Door mixtape, available now, and be sure to keep a lookout for his still untitled debut album, due out late this summer.
