After a stellar live performance of it for his Los Angeles show, we finally have Gunna in his Afrobeats bag officially in our hands. Moreover, he hopped on the remix of Victor Thompson and Ehis "D" Greatest's "This Year (Blessings)." Not only does the dancehall-adjacent cut contain great vocal harmonies from all artists, but the YSL affiliate holds his own from a melodic and lyrical standpoint, as well. There are many different versions of this song out right now, so make sure to give Thompson and D some love and find your favorite. It might be October, but this track is going to heat up any playlist you slap it on.

In addition to the record coming out on streaming service, the artists also released a music video for it. You can see Victor Thompson and Ehis "D" Greatest around Los Angeles in it, working hard on the song, performing, and rehearsing. In fact, around the halfway mark of the video, you can not only see the Georgia MC rehearsing with Thompson and the band, but bringing him out onto the stage for their performance. As such, it feels like a lot of the song's bubbly energy, reversed and atmospheric synths, and hopeful lyrics really manifested themselves in that moment. That's not where they were created, but it's clear the whole team felt it was important to match these two together.

Quotable Lyrics
And say, "Young GunWunna is the G.O.A.T.," (say, "Young GunWunna is the G.O.A.T.")
Planted me a seed and watched it grow,
Travel overseas, across the globe,
Grinding to survive is all I know, oh
