After previewing cuts like “Only Fan,” “Go Get It,” and “Shine On The World,” Eric Bellinger finally unleashed his brand new project New Light back in September. One standout track from the compilation is “What About Us” featuring Sevyn Streeter. He returned with an offering earlier this week to further enhance the song in the form of a live performance eversion of the track. In this stripped down version, Eric showcases his range as he pleads with his ex to go back down memory lane as he remembers their relationship through rose-colored glasses:
What about me, what about you? What about love, what about trust? (Trust)/ What about then? Talking back when you would hop in when I pull up (up)/ Reminiscing ‘bout back then lately (yeah)/ Remember how I used to fuck you crazy? (Yeah)/
Recently, Eric Bellinger tapped in with Kash Doll and Wale for their collab hit “Single and Happy.” He assisted BJ The Chicago kid in his BJ Wednesday’s series on their joint track “Type of Day,” and also Symphani Soto on her latest single “Just A Moment” while also joining her for the official 2000’s-inspired music video as well. Earlier this summer, Eric Bellinger and Hitmaka teamed up for their joint 1-800-HIT-EAZY project. The recent body of work consists of 14 new tracks, all produced by Hitmaka, and includes just two features from Chrishan and Rahky.
“During the process of making this album, I found a new understanding of peace, my approach on this project was completely different from all my other albums, pushing me to move beyond my comfort zone, expanding my ability to grow,” Eric says about the album via press release. “This is a reintroduction to Eric Bellinger. I hope this album inspires people to love, grow, and discover themselves as well.”
