I’ve been on the Beats 1 beat today, and I should make this more of a daily habit.
After new singles from Mac Miller & Anderson .Paak (“Dang!“) and Banks & Steelz (“Sword In The Stone“) premiered via the radio station today, Zane Lowe’s noon show closed out with a new song from Saba called “Symmetry.”
The Chicago artist — who is featured on Chance the Rapper’s “Angels,” which just caught a VMA nomination — has collaborated with all your favorites from the area and his talents garner praise from everyone who he’s worked with.
Still weaving his way through jumpstarting his solo career, the lyrics on “Symmetry” seem to preach self-reassurance and patience from fans, though it’s masked in a tale about love. “Baby don’t rush me, we got plenty of time,” Saba sings on the hook before asking, “If I told you my story, would then tell yours to me?”
The kid is in his early 20s and blossoming in one of the best music cities in America right now. There’s no need to rush anything, in any facet of life.
Listen to “Symmetry” below.
