The BROCKHAMPTON roll out has officially kicked into full gear. Earlier this month, the group shared a cryptic clip to provide an update on what has been going on behind the scenes. The legendary RZA assured listeners that what’s coming up next for the group is sure to be well worth the wait, and BROCKHAMPTON officially shared a taste with their new video “Buzzcut” last week.
Now, the next single “Count On Me” has arrived and it includes assists from A$AP Rocky and SoGone SoFlexy. On the song, Rocky takes care of the opening, and even slickly references a 2000’s track:
You look so different to me, it’s like you barely even know me/ You was missin’ from me, swear I’m tired of feelin’ lonely/ Like, Field Mob song, Trill Mob boy, keep it MIA for too long, so far/ Now catch the compensation, change the conversation, dollars all I’m chasin’
Ain’t talkin’ money, fuck is you sayin’? I’m non-comprehensive, money finish sentences/ No, I ain’t sensitive, n***a, just highly offended
“COUNT ON ME” is BROCKHAMPTON’s second single from their sixth studio album, ROADRUNNER: NEW LIGHT, NEW MACHINE. The song features only two of the seven BROCKHAMPTON vocalists but features verses from A$AP Rocky and SoGone SoFlexy, as well as uncredited vocals on the chorus from Shawn Mendes and frequent collaborator Ryan Beatty. According to a Genius annotation, a snippet of the song was first leaked in Dec 2020, containing a portion of Rocky’s verse and bearface vocals. Lyrics from Flexy’s verse, as well as the song title, were accidentally revealed by HK in an Instagram live with Kevin Abstract on Feb 23, 2021.
BROCKHAMPTON’s last body of work was 2019’s GINGER, which boasts their Platinum-certified single “SUGAR.” Prior to that was 2018’s iridescence and then their SATURATION trilogy that started back in 2017.
