Chris Brown and Joyner Lucas join forces on “Stranger Things,” a Netflix-inspired single in anticipation of their forthcoming joint project Angels & Demons.
Over a booming instrumental, Breezy flexes his rap skills with an acrobatic flow. “I don’t like when I lose,” he raps. “If I don’t buy her them shoes, I don’t like those / Do anything that I want to, think I’m gonna dance on the moon like Michael.”
Using his intricate rhyme patterns and rapid-fire delivery, Lucas adds: “Walk in the trap like a boss / Ho, you know I’m dripping with the sauce / Pretty with a face full of scars / All they do is build me up to try to take me apart.”
“Stranger Things” is part of a larger Angels & Demons project, which features a half-angel-half-demon being on the cover. A video for the single is scheduled to arrive tonight (Feb. 25). Photos taken at the shoot seem to show the duo going back-and-forth in a studio, surrounded by neon lights.
Breezy is coming off last year’s Heartbreak on a Full Moon and his upcoming Jacquees mixtape, while Lucas recently released his Timbaland-produced collaboration with Meek Mill, “Run It.”
In January, Lucas teased the joint project on Twitter. “You ever heard Michael Jackson rap?” he asked. “Lol well Me and @chrisbrown got a lot of heat in the oven. No bullshit tho,, breezy mite be my new favorite rapper. you’ll see.”
