Lil Yachty has been gearing up for his next major release thanks to a star-studded collaboration between himself, Drake and DaBaby for “Oprah’s Bank Account.” The nearly 10-minute visual featured comedic sketches throughout as Yachty dressed as “Bohbrah” and hosted intimate conversations with Drake and DaBaby. Each took veiled shots at hip-hop cliches and at times Yachty himself. He’s also been hosting his The Boat Show on YouTube, with its fifth episode guest-starring Wiz Khalifa and Big Sean. Now, Lil Boat has released a new song on his SoundCloud with “Rain,” a slowed down anthem looking for someone to weather the storm with him.
The track features his signature melodies dripped in autotune and the lyrics are free-flowing, almost stream of consciousness in nature, with rhymes skipped for words that bleed into the next line. “On a perfect day I know I can count on you/ When that’s not possible, tell me who can weather the storm? Cus I need somebody who’ll stand by me/ Through the good times and bad times, she will always… always be right there.” It’s a change of pace from “Oprah’s Bank Account” but right at home in Yachty’s catalogue.
