The man who broke Ella Mai has new music on the horizon.
In a new interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music’s Beats 1 Radio, Mustard revealed that, in addition to his new single, "Pure Water," featuring Migos, he has collabs on collabs, on collabs, if you will.
“I got something crazy with Future,” Mustard said. “I got something crazy with 21. I got something crazy with Meek. Obviously, Ty and YG and my normal people that I work, but I got some other people too that's just like whoa, I didn't even think that you would even do that. We definitely going for the gusto this whole year. We wanna do as much as we can to show everybody that this is definitely gonna be a good year for me and my team. I'm actually going into the studio with Lil Jon today, which is a dream of mine. I'm gonna be in the studio with him for the next two days and conjure up something crazy.”
As Mustard himself points out, records with YG are standard fare, but hearing Future and 21 Savage over DJ Mustard beats sounds fascinating, to say the least. How will Future croon over a winding West Coast bass line? How will Meek Mill’s booming delivery fare over the punch of a Mustard drum pattern?
The most exciting thing about these potential collaborations is the implication that each artist will have to push themselves out of their comfort zone and step into Mustard’s world and vice versa. The perfect collab is, then, a meeting of the minds. Wherein both artists leave their egos at the studio door and come together in harmony.
Let’s just say, we’re ready for the tunes.
