Saba: “Burnout (ft. Eryn Allen Kane)”
After guesting on Chance The Rapper’s Acid Rap, Chicago emcee Saba is prepping the release of his new #COMFORTZONE mixtape. He’s joined forces with the incredible Eryn Allen Kane for a single from album, “Burnout.” We talked about Kane’s debut single last year, and it’s great to see her back to lend her vocals to this track. Warm piano chords and a relaxed beat set the tone for Saba’s verses. His flow is flexible and interesting, but he mainly stays reserved here, letting the focus fall on his poetic rhymes. Eryn Allen Kane gets more straightforward in the chorus: “Hey Universe, don’t come at me with your bullshit/Your nonsense, these issues, can’t handle it!” And if that’s not a relatable hook, I don’t know what is!
The #COMFORTZONE mixtape will drop July 15th, but you can download “Burnout” now on Audiomack.
