G-Eazy features on ‘Wicked,’ by Mike Posner’s mansionz side-project
Singer/songwriter Mike Posner has taken a departure from his electro-pop past in linking up with singer/producer Mat Musto (also known as blackbear) on their new project, mansionz. The Los Angeles-based duo sparked attention when they sported neon green buzz cuts at the Grammys back in February, and their debut album Mansionz is generating just as much buzz.
Because mansionz harmoniously weave electronic, pop, R&B, and hip hop, to note their genre as R&B only explores one facet of their artistry. The album’s eighth track, “Wicked,” sees all collaborators involved exploring new territory; Mike Posner and Mat Musto step into the world of nu-disco with G-Eazy on a guest verse, and the result is pure funk.
The lyrics focus on a “wicked” girl whose casual intentions differ from the trio’s heartfelt, sweet nothings. Mike Posner sings over the majority of the track, while G-Eazy’s verse gives listeners a rare glimpse into the rapper’s softer side.
