Vince Staples Teams With 6lack & Mereba For ‘Yo Love’
Vince Staples Yo Love: Vince staples has teamed up with 6lack and mereba for ‘Yo Love‘, one of the songs making up the soundtrack of the movie, Queen and slim. The track is expected to drop on friday, November 15th.
The Melina Matsoukas-directed and Lena Waithe-written film, Queen & Slim, hits U.S. theaters on November 27. However, we won’t have to wait til then to enjoy its soundtrack, which looks just as promising and arrives this Friday (Nov. 15). So far, from the album, we have received Megan Thee Stallion & VickeeLo’s “Ride Or Die” and Tiana Major9 & EARTHGANG’s “Collide“. We’re still dying to hear the new Lauryn Hill song on there – which will mark her first solo release in five years – but today, we got another exciting offering from the soundtrack.
Vince Staples, 6LACK and Mereba have come together for the trappy ballad, “Yo Love”. The guitar-driven beat is provided by Leken Taylor and provides a smooth surface for Vince and 6LACK to rap their verses over. 6LACK also sings the chorus along with Mereba, who had a big 2019, starring on Dreamville’s Revenge of the Dreamers 3 and releasing her debut album, The Jungle Is The Only Way Out.
Lyrical Excerpts[Verse 1: Vince Staples] Look alive, life too short, mine is built with the reports
Speakin’ ’bout me and you, since they got me off the porch
I been beaten black and blue
Story of my life, tell me something’ about you
Where you from? Did you stay or did you run?
You ever thought about a daughter or a son? No
You lookin’ for a Jason Lyric or a Love Jones
I know you prolly sick of love songs, but [Chorus: 6LACK & Mereba] I’d do life for your live
I would probably swing a knife for your live
Go against everything right for your love
And I would probably man down them if they ever tried to stifle your love
Cross the line, I just might for your love
