Blxst & Roddy Ricch's First Collab Will Have You Feeling "Passionate"


We're only two New Music Fridays into March, and already, we're impressed with the quality of work our favourite artists have been sharing this month. Last weekend, projects from Kali Uchis, Dreamville, and Masego stole the spotlight. This time around, it was Conway the Machine who came through for rap lovers, and Blxst who held it down for any R&B fanatics out there.

The latter didn't deliver a full-length project, though he did treat fans to a four-pack EP called Just For Clarity 2 featuring the previously released "Keep Calling" with Larry June. Blxst operates solo on "Call My Bluff," but the two other titles, "Ghetto Cinderella" and "Passionate," find him working with some impressive collaborators. On the project's opening track, he teamed up with Mustard and Terrace Martin, and following that, he and fellow Californian Roddy Ricch came together for the first time.

Blxst's New EP Features Roddy Ricch and Other Friends

"'Passionate' is bigger than a song to me," the Before You Go hitmaker said of the catchy track. "I like to look at it more as a mindset, especially working with Roddy on this record. It's dope to see somebody's success go from zero to a hundred, especially somebody from the hometown." Blxst went on to recall the early days of he and "The Box" lyricist in the studio before they had established themselves, also praising their endless passion.

While four songs may be enough to hold fans over for now, they obviously want more from the 30-year-old in the near future. Luckily, he's teased that his new EP is simply "an appetizer before the debut." Blxst added, "I call it a flawless four-pack because it's intentionally short and sweet."

Quotable Lyrics:

Yeah, and I done put my heart and soul in it
Got it out the mud, I promise it's a cold feelin'
This ain't overnight, I woke up with no ceilin'
I made a vision come to life, I'm Cole Bennett
