With Father Figure 2 out next month, Rexx Life Raj is back with the album’s second single.
Following “2Free” from last week, the Berkeley, CA native enlists Russ for “Burn Baby Burn.” Produced by Cisco Cortez and Evan Ma, the buzzing, electronic-lead track details a fiery relationship, while interpolating Prince’s “Erotic City” for the hook.
“‘Burn Baby Burn’ came about in a very rare session with Cisco Cortez and Evan Ma,” Raj told Billboard. “I wanted to do some up-tempo 4-on-the-floor shit, something I hadn’t done at the time. We worked on the beat and I took it back to my studio and channeled my inner Prince… Sent it over to Russ, he bodied his verse, and the rest is history. I hella fuck with the record because it’s a lot different from the music I usually do, but it’s still me.”
