The six-minute, three-part song begins quietly and builds to a soulful, grooving affair with a female gospel-tipped chorus, before it ratchets up into a stomping blues-funk second passage where Gambino’s passionate vocals kick in. “Do what you want/ I’m telling you/ Let me into your heart/ Can’t stand it, backhanded/ They want to see us falling apart/ You know that I love you/ So let me into your heart,” he sings, eschewing rap in favor of a raw, intense approach.
Following the cacophonous midpoint, the song culminates with winding instrumentals, ushering in a cathartic ending to the sprawling composition.
The song is the first track on the rapper’s upcoming third LP. The follow-up to 2013’s Because the Internet, Awaken, My Love! will have 11 tracks, according to its iTunes preview page. It’s due December 2nd via Glassnote.
The actor-rapper stars in FX’s Atlanta, which was recently renewed for a second season. Glover has also been cast to portray Lando Calrissian in the Star Wars franchise’s upcoming Han Solo standalone film, which is slated for release in 2018.
