Nav’s had quite the buzz recently. After landing a big feature on Travis Scott’s ‘biebs in the trap’, the XO producer/rapper has announced his debut project in the right way: a feature from XO boss – The Weeknd.
‘Some Way’ is a boppy, minimal banger – with Nav dialling in a little organ and some heavy drums, but not much else. Abel comes in first and steals it with his standard dulcet bravado, however, this is pretty much expected nowadays. People are claiming that The Weeknd throws a subliminal jab at Bieber too (‘I think your girl think your girl fell in love with me’), since the XO boss has been linked with Selena Gomez. However, whether this is true or not is pretty fucking immaterial; this is Nation of Billions – not OK! Magazine. Anyway, Nav does his thing too, with his sometimes funny – sometimes facepalm bars crashing over the snares.
It’s probably worth mentioning, here, that The Weeknd’s just dropped some visuals for the ‘Starboy’ track ‘Reminder’ (watch above), since the two tracks in question are sonically very similar. The video contains all the things you might expect from Abel by now, namely – cars, coke and girls, and perhaps someone that you might not have expected… Yes, that’s right – Drake. The former collaborators have seemingly kept their distance but it’s nice to see the pair back on good terms.
