New Music: Juicy J – One Of Those Nights (ft. The Weeknd)
Juicy J teams up with The Weeknd for a new song called ‘One Of Those Nights’.
Yesterday, we dropped the news that rapper Juicy J had teamed up with R&B crooner Abel Tesfaye better known as The Weeknd, on a mystery track entitled ‘One Of Those Nights’. The news came about when the Three Six Mafia veteran dropped the single’s artwork on his Instagram.
Late last night, the track was dropped on SoundCloud. We predicted that Juicy would have a lot to live up to on his own track, as The Weeknd is pretty much in a league of his own! Of course we were right on the living up part, but did Juicy make the grade? Not quite!
Despite The Weeknd being the featured artist, the song becomes his own, quite like Wiz Khalifa’s ‘Remember You’. The song kicks off with the Canadian singer-songwriter and it’s not until the halfway point when we finally hear what Juicy has to say.
Juicy’s big moment is pretty much a flop, as you just start to get used to Abel’s soothing Michael Jacksonesque vocals. His flow is tight, he rides the rhythm well, but the lyrics lack substance making the track “just one of those songs”. Nevertheless, the track is a definite grower.
‘One Of Those Nights’ is set to appear on Juicy J’s forthcoming album Stay Trippy.
