Mac Miller continues releasing colorful, soulful jams with his latest single “We” featuring CeeLo Green. He shared the audio track last night (August 18), and like his previous track “Dang!” it’s all done to bright, peppy animation.
At over five minutes long, “We” has a relaxed beat with a strong drum presence up front. The lengthy intro lasts just over a minute before Miller begins rapping, “I’ll think of something to say/ I always do/ I’m in love with the way you say my name/ Every time, it sound brand new/ And you, always wondering what will be/ I saw ‘we’ sound better than ‘you and me’/ Baby, you could be my.” He trails off before clarifying what exactly his lady could be, instead leaving a gap they can fill in together as they figure out what they mean to one other.
Green comes in at around three minutes, his voice rising to a gospel praise in the background before he sings about about turning from a “me” into a “we.”
“We” appears on Miller’s new album The Divine Feminine, which, from the two songs he’s previewed off the project, seems to largely deal with love and relationships. The Divine Feminine will be available September 16th.
