Two notable names in hip-hop, Travis Scott and Metro Boomin, come together to feature on James Blake’s “Mile High” off Blake’s latest album.
The English artist is a triple threat, with singing, producing and songwriting under his belt. Now Blake takes the scene by storm once again by recruiting a few A-list hip-hop legends to his third studio album, Assume Form, that released yesterday. Besides Travis and Metro Boomin, Andre 3000 was added to track list on the single “Where’s the Catch?” which takes on a more cynical outlook on relationships when things seem too good to be true.
As for “Mile High,” the La Flame rapper of course brings his own flare to the track, in comparison to Blake’s haunting singing skills.
“Got it tatted on my sleeve
Fell in love overseas
Ass fatter than a peach, uh
Ocean water kinda deep, uh
Rollin’ up out the reef, uh
Put me down, straight to sleep”
The single overall gives off an R&B feel with consistent mellow vocals and the deep bass. It is an easy listen, that you can rock to in the car for a late-night drive and get lost in.
Blake and Travis are no strangers to working together, either. Blake featured on Travis’s “Stop Trying to Play God” off of his Astroworld album, which went certified platinum back in September 2018. Therefore, their chemistry is evident, especially in “Mile High.”
