Don Toliver set the tone for 2023 with the release of Love Sick. In the past two years since dropping Life Of A Don, he's been hard at work on his follow-up project. There’s little doubt that Toliver is among the few artists who are pushing the boundaries. His unmatched strand of woozy R&B and soul combined with hip-hop’s ethos. Nevertheless, Toliver emerged on Friday with the release of his latest body of work, and fans surely weren’t disappointed with what he had in store.
Love Sick is undoubtedly an ambitious project that boasts an array of features. The 16-track effort includes appearances from James Blake, Charlie Wilson, Brent Faiyaz, Toro Y Moi, and Lil Durk. On top of that, his girlfriend, Kali Uchis, who appears on the previously released single, “4 Me.” Additionally, the rapper also brings together Justin Bieber and Future for a highlight off of the project and teams up with WizKid. Toliver’s versatility is showcased across the project through the numerous collaborations with artists from across the world. It's a sign of what he has in store for the future.
Don Toliver - Love Sick (Deluxe)
Just a few short days after the project’s release, Toliver revamps the tracklist for the official deluxe edition of Love Sick. This time, he adds four new songs to the project, including “Embarrassed” ft. Travis Scott, produced by Wheezy, and “Luckily I’m Having” ft. Teezo Touchdown. The short expansion undoubtedly elevates the whole listening experience further, especially with the contributions from Teezo and Scott, who he worked with previously on songs like “Flocky Flocky” and DJ Khaled’s “LET’S PRAY.”
It seems as if Don Toliver’s deluxe edition might be able to help boost his first-week numbers. Toliver’s latest project is projected to move 31K to 36K in its first week. Though the deluxe edition only includes four additional songs, it wouldn’t be surprising if we find out that his first-week sales bypass the initial projections. There’s tons of replay value across the project. Press play below on Love Sick deluxe and sound off in the comments with your thoughts on Don Toliver’s latest body of work.
