French Montana is back again with another hot banger, after last year’s major hit, the Drake-assisted “No Stylist.” Now, he followed it up with his Jungle Rules at the ending stages, French has dropped off another single, the minimalist banger titled “Slide.” While he’s often kept his ear to the streets when seeking featured guests, French has outdone himself on this go-around, featuring Blueface and Lil Tjay into the fold. Now, following a slew of remix contributions, Blueface feels right at home over pianos and 808 kicks.
The track sees French Montana touching a classic flow from Dr. Dre’s “Dre Day,” before releasing a chorus that’s almost brilliant in its simplicity: “bitch slide, bitch slide, bitch slide.” Lil Tjay holds it down for the post-chorus, which transitions into a tone-switching highlight, evocative of Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg’s early days as a g-funk pioneer. The West Coast homage finds French flowing like “Still Dre,” before passing the mic to the delightfully offbeat Blueface. “Slidin!” he echoes. “Two dicks on me a cock, and a big glock,” he continuous. “Reach for me piece like opening eyes in Bird Box!”
Two dicks on me, a cock, and a big glock
Reach for me piece like opening eyes in Bird Box!
