When writing about Kehlani's recent track "Alive," our very own Trevor Smith made a clutch observation about the "chugging 80s synth line": "it might be the year's most proven hit-making technique next to a chunky DJ Mustard riff." Citing other examples by Ariana Grande, Nick Jonas and Taylor Swift, his point is now bolstered by Jason Derulo's latest track. Taken from his upcoming album Everything Is 4, this is "Cheyenne."
In front of the aforementioned '80s-referencing sonic backdrop, Derulo croons about a love lost, crafting a midtempo ballad that's also danceable. Everything Is 4 is out on june 2nd, and available for preorder now.
Got the table set for two
Guess you couldn't make it
Thought I kissed your lips again
I was dreamin'
