One year after teasing the follow-up to their breakout smash hit, Bronx Drill’s most electric trio linked back up this week to drop part two.
Ever since hitting the radar with “Brotherly Love” early in 2021, Kay Flock, B-Lovee and Dougie B have been some of the hottest names in NYC and clear frontrunners of the popular (and controversial) Bronx Drill movement — not to mention among the first to sign with major labels, each wisely securing their own deals at separate labels.
As their stars rose throughout the year as they each dropped their own successful solo tracks, fans have been clamoring for a follow-up to the legendary breakout hit. The trio first teased “Brotherly Love Pt. 2” all the way back in May of last year when they appeared on Gabe P’s On the Radar for their first interview, and this week it finally arrived.
Where the original was wild and chaotic, with the over-the-top aggression of Bronx Drill on full display throughout the frenetic visual, the guys took a different approach for “Brotherly Love Pt. 2.” This time around they took a more introspective line, contrasting the calm, guitar-led drill-infused production (by ALau and Matt Marvin) with their raspy flows and gritty drill bars — channeling a laidback energy similar to that of Flock’s popular single, “Being Honest.”
The song opens with the currently incarcerated Kay Flock’s distinct voice calling in from behind bars to show support for his guys as clips roll from their first ever festival appearance at Rolling Loud 2021. The video was directed by Kaiyah Napri, who also masterminded the now iconic red-tinted visual from the original, and shows just how far the trio has come with their upgraded drip, jewels and on-camera presence.
While the Bronx Drill wave has been in full effect for a whole year at this point, back in March of 2021 it was still the early days. When Kay Flock and B-Lovee enlisted their newly freed compatriot, Dougie B, for “Brotherly Love,” the song instantly caught fire due to its raw energy, eye-popping visual and the obvious star power of the three teenage drillers. The track quickly racked up millions of views, essentially marking the official beginning of Bronx Drill season in NYC and setting the stage for Kay Flock and B-Lovee to become the undisputed faces of the blossoming subgenre.
Over the last year since, Kay Flock has exceeded all expectations. He’s dropped massive solo-songs like “PSA” and “Is Ya Ready” and earned multiple Billboard Hot 100 entries. Not to mention multiple hugely successful major collabs with Fivio Foreign, G Herbo, LilTjay and most recently Cardi B on “Shake It” – which peaked at #51 on the Billboard Hot 100 and has racked up over 36M views to date.
Since he’s been behind bars, Dougie B and B-Lovee have been sure to keep his name alive — and this week finally fulfilled their promise to fans of a follow-up to their legendary collab. While his journey has not been without its struggles, it’s difficult to dispute Flock’s status as the face of the Bronx Drill subgenre, and “Brotherly Love Pt. 2” is just the latest example.
