Saba has officially come out with a solid two-piece for the loyal fans, rounding out the smooth vibes of "Mrs. Whoever" with the uptempo "Something In The Water," which arrives complete with a guest appearance from Denzel Curry. Over an aquatic instrumental evocative of the song's title, Saba kicks things off with a laid-back yet dexterous performance. "Contract, contact bullshit make you realize you been shorted, yeah," he spits, topical given Kanye West's ongoing war on the industry. "Concepts fallin' short, you n**gas tryin' too hard, I noticed /
Confined by the corporatÐµ, make you see you can't afford it yet."
Following an impeccable flow-switch midway through his verse, Saba pivots on the court and passes the ball to Denzel Curry. Though some might have expected an unleashed performance from Zeltron, he opts to pull back and go for the sneak attack. "Bottle water when I rap, grew up never drinkin' from the tap," he spits, deftly navigating the instrumental. "I was so sick of these airports 'til COVID hit the map / now we're too sleep at this point, we even tired of takin' naps / I lost close friends to a drug binge, in hopes I can bring 'em back."
Check out the brand new single from Saba and Denzel Curry, and sound off in the comments if you dig the chemistry on wax.
Something's in the water, something's in the way, Nirvana

I'm good in the hood, I'm like vagina, yeah
