JPEGMAFIA continues to release new music on his own terms. His How To Build A Relationship documentary series has been supplemented by a number of loosies and music videos all recorded and filmed throughout the coronavirus quarantine. If anything, the overall bleak atmosphere and post-apocalyptic themes of COVID-19 have pushed the producer and rapper to be as experimental and timely as ever. Over the weekend he dropped off his latest “living single” visual with a sample of Mariah Carey‘s “Always Be My Baby.”

JPEGMAFIA first previewed the song in-concert during his debut episode of HTBAR. He opens up the track with an auto-tuned homage to Carey’s 1995 mega-hit and then breaks down into his verse where he takes a shot at the monotone qualities of San Antonio Spurs legend Tim Duncan and acknowledges his white fanbase. “44 on me like hacksaw Jim Duggan/ Dressed like a house-wife/ I’m a bad husband/ Keep the fears tucked in/ Champagne for the pain and suffering/ Fans same color as voice of Tim Duncan.”

“living single” follows last week’s collaborative “Rough 7” with Tommy Genesis, the previous week’s “The BENDS!” and a feature on BROCKHAMPTON’s “chain on / hold me”. At this point, you can expect new music from the artist every week or so. His new approach to releasing music whenever he pleases follows last year’s studio effort All My Heroes Are Cornballs, and Peggy’s basically released an entire album’s worth of material throughout the first half of 2020. Stay tuned for more.

Watch JPEGMAFIA’s latest visual above and stream “living single” below. In more music news, Marilyn Manson joined A$AP Ferg in the studio for a potential collaboration.
