According to G-Eazy’s new single “Calm Down,” the rapper spent 52 weeks on the charts last year. And, judging by the new track, he intends to repeat this success.
The LA rapper found mainstream success with Bebe Rehxa and their duet “Me, Myself & I” last year and recently scored a highly coveted spot on Britney Spears’ lead Glory single, “Make Me.” Now G-Eazy has dropped another track from his 2015 album When It’s Dark Out and hit the sweet spot for radio play.
Shot in black and white, “Calm Down” pays homage to the California rapper’s upbringing with shots of his hometown of Oakland, as well as San Francisco. G-Eazy is joined for much of the video by the Cali hip hop group HBK as he rides streetcars, hangs out at a parties, poses in front of vintage cars and continues on his quest to make Hawaiian shirts cool. We’re actually digging the look. The song is that catchy.
“Calm Down” is produced by The Arcade, who are best known for their fast-tempo hits “Fancy” and “Beg For It” with Iggy Azalea. The British producers find a much chiller groove for the new track, with Eazy name checking the Kardashians and Jenners and declaring himself the best white rapper since Eminem.
