Angel Haze just debuted her new track “Initiation” to placate fans as they wait for her first album to drop. According to her tweet, the song didn’t make the cut for her debut LP Dirty Gold, but we have to say, if something this solid is a leftover, that bodes well for the album’s overall quality.
Whereas “No Bueno” (which, it turns out, isn’t the LP’s lead single) was confrontational and aggressive, this one is emotional, delving into the murk of relationships. The MC raps and delivers a beautifully sung chorus over a gloomy, throbbing beat — in fact, it’s more of an R&B song with (her own) guest rap verse.
Hear “Initiation” below.
