  • Artist: Blackbear
  • Track: Playing Dead
  • Producer: Joshua Crosby, Blackbear
  • Album: None (Promo Single)

I've heard it said that, if you're attacked by a bear, Playing Dead is your best bet for survival. (Fortunately, I haven't had an opportunity to put that to the test). On Blackbear's latest single, however, it's him doing his best impression of a cadaver, when faced with a ferocious... part-time model? On this freshly-minted promo single, the Cali alt-R&B singer describes a hard-partying shawty who has him hanging on her every word, though his intuition tells him she's nothing but trouble. Together with Joshua Crosby, the artist creates an addictive, off-kilter synth/sample beat to accompany his effortlessly smooth vocals. This joint is just a loosie, but we'll keep you posted on Blackbear's plans as we learn more.
