The new, rumored 1st single off Mike Posner's upcoming album, Sky High. He locks in Pharrell and production from The Neptunes for what I think could become a mainstream hit! Posner even channels his inner Skateboard P with the delivery in his vocals while Pharrell provides a smooth guest verse to match an instant smash of a production. If you're keeping track at home, that means every aspect of "IDGAF" sounds great, and I think that people will be attracted to the realness of the fun lyrics.
"It's 8pm Dec 22nd and I just got back to Detroit. My Dad picked me up from the airport. My sister is cooking dinner and yelling at me for already having my headphones on. My Mom is on her way home from work. I'm so grateful to have these incredible people"
Posner continuing his wave of new music that's put out for free right after its completion (I like when artists do that, it's pure and authentic).
Here he gets nostalgic for being back home for the holidays as King Chip adds his similar perspective. It's a *Tibs Fav. for Posner's vocals, lyrics, and piano alone. I wasn't really vibing with Chip's verse to be honest; it felt like it would have been better with another one from Posner.
Mike Posner wrote and recorded this new track "Heaven" in response to the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut yesterday. It's a fitting, heartfelt creation and one that casual listeners should pick up and give their ears to. Easy *Tibs Fav. and I really appreciate the sentiment that Posner was able to express. His words below:
"I wanted to do SOMETHING for the families and I didn’t know what else to do. Ed Sheeran’s guitar played at the exact moment I heard about the tragedy. The song came out of me faster than any before. It felt wrong not to share it. I hope this finds its way to the proper ears at the proper time. God Bless you. I’m so grateful to be alive. Maybe this terrible day will make sense in Heaven."
