With a little under a week to go for the release of Life Is Good, the tenth studio album from one of the best rappers in the world – Nas; he gives us the last track on the album. The track entitled ‘Bye Baby’ which samples ‘Goodbye Love’ by 90s R&B boy band Guy, hints much about his relationship with ex-wife and baby mother singer Kelis.
In the song, Nas does what he does best, he keeps it real. Co-written by Drake and produced with one of his besties Noah ’40’ Shebib along with heavyweight Hip-Hop producer Salaam Remi, it’s soulful and quite touching. The song that ends with a simple message ‘bye baby’ assumingly his last words to Kelis and a goodbye to Def Jam, as it is his last album with the record label.
Life Is Good is out on Monday (16th July) and on the 17th in the US. Have a listen below, and enjoy.
