So far this month, several hip-hop and R&B artists are impressing us with their new releases. Standout projects include Kash Doll and DJ Drama's Gangsta Grillz cut, as well as Shy Glizzy's Flowers. As for singles, we've markedly heard from the likes of G Perico, Masego, Daniel Caesar, and many more. The latest vocalist to turn out some heat is none other than Yung Bleu.

On Tuesday (February 14), the 28-year-old gave fans a Valentine's Day treat in the form of "Games Women Play." The new arrival follows the singer's recent announcement that his Love Scars II effort is due to drop in April. Throughout his lyrics, Bleu mostly reflects on troubling experiences in love, and the emotions he felt as a result.

"And I'll always think of you as that one that got away / My mind want you to leave, but, girl, my heart want you to stay," he reflects as the first verse comes to a close. Things become more intense later on in the song.

"I know these women, they know how to play it / I ain't no pretty boy, but tell me, who this durag by the bed?" he asks his lover during the second verse. "I'm jumpin' off the ledge / It f*cked my head up, now I'm seein' red, you better call the feds."

Prior to sharing "Games Women Play," Bleu dropped off his TANTRA project in late 2022. Across 17 titles, he connected with artists like Lil Wayne, Ne-Yo, and Kelly Rowland, just to name a few.

Quotable Lyrics:

I know these women, they know how to play it
I ain't no pretty boy, but tell me, who this durag by the bed?
I'm jumpin' off the ledge
It f*cked my head up, now I'm seein' red, you better call the feds
