After just unveiling his project FULL CIRCLE from last month, Medhane is back with a brand new one-off track — “Cling.” As heard in the previous eight-track project, the Brooklyn rapper has been known to rap over dream-like instrumentals that blend seamlessly with his unique vocal cadence, and “Cling” is no exception, bringing his immaculate flows once again to a lucid, midtempo beat.

Clocking in at one minute and 45 seconds, Medhane’s new track was produced by redlee, laced with a lush arrangement of hazy synths, chimes, heavy 808s and crisp drums. Medhane comes through with a laidback flow, penning lyrics like “feel the power when it hit me” and “couple cups put me on the moon.” The song is also accompanied by a stripped-back music video, shot entirely on an iPhone by matter research in the kitchen of a friend’s house. As a final note, the song ends on a catchy hook that Medhane repeats a second time, leaving the rest of the track, approximately 45 seconds, to soak in the sounds of ethereal instrumentals.
