G-Eazy Battles His Demons On ‘The Beautiful & Damned’ [LISTEN]
G-Eazy struggles under the spotlight on his new song "The Beautiful & Damned." The track is the latest single from his forthcoming LP of the same name.
The singer Zoe Nash is also on the cut and her strong vocals — which has a bit of a Macy Gray feel — accentuates Eazy's descriptive verses.
Despite what many people may think, fame can be tough. There's trying to live up to people's expectations, trying to maintain the success you've established and doing your best to keep your personal relationships intact.
"When you move this fast as I'm moving / All the toxic things I'm using / All the substances I'm abusing / All the sex and the drugs and the boozin' / The decision is mine for the choosing / But I can't understand what I'm losing," he spits over the self-produced track.
Just days ago, the Bay Area rapper dropped the video for his song "The Plan"," also off of The Beautiful & Damned, while his Cardi B assisted-single "No Limit" continues to get heavy radio play.
Just last week, G-Eazy shared the artwork for the new album and announced features will include A$AP Rocky, Halsey, Cardi B, Kehlani, Anna of the North and Charlie Puth.
In addition, the new LP will reportedly be a double album and show the two different sides of the rapper's life. "[The album] is about sex, drugs and rock and roll," Eazy told Angie Martinez. "The music is dark."
The Beautiful & Damned album comes out on Dec. 15, and you can listen to the new single below.
