Attention, fellas: if you happen to be assembling a playlist to set the mood for a Valentine’s Day evening with your significant other, don’t just glance at the title and throw DJ Quik‘s new single, Luv of My Life, into the mix – it might give her her the wrong impression. You see, the Compton veteran is most emphatically not looking to get wifed up. Instead, this joint finds him and Booth newcomer Gift Reynolds waxing poetic about a few of their favorite things: cash, liquor, whips, no-strings-attached booty, you get the picture. Though the subject matter may not scream “romantic,” Quik’s laid-back synth-bass instrumental makes for perfect chill-out material, and the collaborators’ luxurious stunting is nothing if not entertaining: “Orange bottle champagne, teal, green blue / Clicquot in y’all Perignon, weed too.” Find yourself nodding along to this breezy West Coast banger? Then you’ll undoubtedly dig the rest of what Quik’s cooked up for his latest full-length, The Book of David, scheduled to hit store shelves and online retailers– drumroll, please…April 20.
