On The Language, a standout off his last album, Drake told a shawty solely interested in weed and sex, ”Now you're speaking my language.” Smoking and f**king are also Young Thug's native tongue, but he speaks a slightly different dialect, as evidenced by the lead single off his forthcoming full length. Heavily inspired by the aforementioned Nothing Was the Same inclusion (some might go so far as to call it a remix), The Blanguage finds Thug putting his unmistakable stamp on the “Versace flow” pioneered by Georgia trio Migos. Metro Boomin goes all-original on the production tip, crafting a synth-led beat that's similar in vibe, but not indebted to Boi-1da's original instrumental. Feeling it? You'll be able to hear more from Young Thug and his behind-the-boards collaborator on Metro Thuggin, set to drop via iTunes at an unannounced date this spring.
