Ty Dolla $ign and Future explore the ‘Darkside’ on a single off the just-announced Bright soundtrack.
With Kiiara handling the haunting chorus, Ty focuses on overcoming oppression and adversity. “I am not afraid / Sick of the oppression and all the hate,” he sings. “Had to change my life for the better days / Had to boss up and overcome adversity.”
Following the infectiously brooding hook, Hendrix takes on haters with a reference to Kanye West and JAY-Z. “Watch for the throne like Yeezus,” he sing-raps. “They trying to clone me / Thinking I don’t see ’em / They take subliminal shots, thinking we don’t hear ’em.”
“Darkside” is the first offering from Bright: The Album, which is set to feature appearances by A$AP Rocky, Lil Uzi Vert, Logic, Meek Mill, Migos, Snoop Dogg, and Camila Cabello, among others.
