It’s been over a year since SiR released November, but the TDE-backed crooner is officially back in action with his new album, Chasing Summer.
“Summer is about freedom,” SiR told DJ Booth earlier this month. “When you’re a kid, and you’re talking about summer, you’re talking about no school and relaxing and being able to do whatever you want all day. As an adult, when you’re talking about summer, it’s vacation. Same thing, having the freedom to live how you want. That’s the overall theme of the album, being free and being able to live how you live.”
Locked in at 14 tracks, with zero skips, the Inglewood native’s second album is absolute fire front to back (based off my 9-10 listens throughout the week) with contributions from Kendrick Lamar (“Hair Down“), Lil Wayne, Sabrina Claudio, Jill Scott, Smino, Kadhja Bonet, and label mate Zacari.
On the production side of things, there’s a collective effort from the likes of Kal Banx, Boi-1da, J. Lbs, Tae Beast, LordQuest, Carter Lang, and others.
