Coi Leray Keeps The “Bops” Coming With New Singleblur mask

Coi Leray just returned with a new single "Bops" that continues her momentum this year. After she's dropped multiple singles and features, including her verse on RAYE's "Flip A Switch." remix, she just released the single "Bops." What's more is that there's yet another Coi single coming this week, with "Body" arriving very soon later in the weekend. All in all, it's an incredibly prolific and exciting season for the Boston-born MC, and one that is only further solidifying her career. On "Bops," she rides a relatively old-school instrumental that sounds closer to 2000s hip-hop than contemporary trap. With a hypnotic percussive pattern with high-pitched bells and confident flows, she would fit right in on a Neptunes record if she had a time machine.

Furthermore, the short but sharp synths on the track also give it a more vintage club feel. However, the production still sounds crisp and vivid, which breathes more life into these classic sounds. While there's not too much instrumental progression or variation, Coi Leray takes care of moving the single forward by herself. Multiple cadences and melodies here could make for a standout hook, and her penchant for melody here is intoxicating. As such, even when she's repeating a lyric or melodic phrase, it still goes a long way to energize the cut. Given previous singles like "Players," this should come as no surprise.

Coi Leray Is Still Dropping "Bops"

Lyrically, the 25-year-old focuses on, unsurprisingly, her success, talent, and supposed beef with other artist. Of course, she recently cleared up a brief spat with Latto after the latter mentioned her on a single of her own, "Put It On Da Floor." Even though they seem to have cleared things up, these tracks and Coi's social media presence indicate that she's got a chip on her shoulder. Fortunately for her fans, it seems to result in hungry and confident bangers.
