Listen to Diplo and Lil Yachty’s new collaboration ‘Forever Young’
As massive crossover tracks continue to boom in popularity, Diplo and emerging rap youth icon Lil Yachty have released their long-hyped new single “Forever Young,” as featured on Yachty’s debut LP Teenage Emotions. Fans of the 19 year old rapper can breathe a sigh of relief, as the soon-to-be hit gravitates towards a stark hip hop influence. “Forever Young” exposes the rapper’s vulnerability over Diplo’s buoyant beat, in a track that is instinctively catchy playing upon Diplo’s Midas touch behind the console.
The Mad Decent head’s pop tastemaking sensibilities shine through in his joint effort with one of the most polarizing hip-hop stars of the moment. While Diplo remains industrious in his production, the eccentric Yachty sustains his zany swagger in his latest product. Moreover, “Forever Young” emits a profuse sense of youthful energy, a theme that permeates steadily throughout the duration of Teenage Emotions.
