Bas is revving up his engine for 2021 as he unleashes his second leading release of the year, “The Jackjie,” which is presumably the first single from his upcoming project. He taps in with J. Cole and Lil TJay for some assistance. On the track, three New York heads (although Cole is famously a proud NC native, he always claims NYC is his second home) join forces to deliver a summer anthem, with Bas handling the opening verse:
I’m on the way, send me the addy, I’m on the Jackie, five on the belt, ten on the jacket/ You gotta have me, it’s been a day, I don’t wanna wait no more/ Why the fuck are we waitin’? I don’t wanna wait no more
I know a couple n****s had you, I ain’t trippin’, they ain’t fuckin’ with me/ My n****s on your block daily/ But them n****s don’t mean nothin’ to me
In terms of other recent collabs, Bas also joined Price and Wyclef Jean for their “Selfish” collab single, and also tapped in with The Hics once again for “Smoke From Fire.” Bas also used his voice and influence to speak on topics important to him as he hosted Dreamville’s podcast, The Messenger, which will help share a story about the fight for freedom in Uganda. Although his last full-length solo project was Milky Way, which was released back in 2018, Bas has had his hand in a slew of singles since then such as FKJ’s “Risk,” Rexx Life Raj’s “No Permission Needed,” and Dua Saleh’s “RE(a)D.”
Cole has been in headlines this year thanks to the release of his sixth studio album, The Off-Season, whicd debuted at the #1 position on the Billboard Album 200 charts. The project broke his no features streak he had going for his solo projects as we saw assists from 21 Savage, fellow Carolinian Morray, Lil Baby, 6lack, and his Dreamville teammate Bas.
