Virgin Islands duo R. City team up with Adam Levine for smash hit "Locked Away."

Big Boi, the non-Andre 3000 half of Outkast, introduces his third solo LP, Boomiverse, today (April 20) with a new track called “Mic Jack” and it’s the catchiest, most commercial thing he’s done as a lead artist. The presence of Adam Levine has a lot to do with that. The Maroon 5 vocalist makes it a no-brainer for radio programmers as he takes charge of the slick, disco-tinged chorus. “You’re hotter than July (super hot), super colder than December (so cold),” he croons. “You got me dancin’, the dancefloor tells no lies.”

That’s a nice juxtaposition to Big Boi’s ruthless verses. “That same skinny thot you got, she be in and out/she never spit it out either, we call her Poke-mouth,” he spits over rubbery synths. “Big mouth bad, start to smash that ass/I build a bear before I build a bitch.” It’s clear that the iconic rapper isn’t playing this era. In addition to unleashing a pop-friendly banger, he also comes for blood with a harder hip-hop anthem called “Kill Jill.” You can take your pick, but I’m bumping “Mic Jack” below.
