In June 2019, as Compton-raised Roddy Ricch was building momentum off his late-2018 project Feed Tha Streets II, he and renowned producer Mustard came together for one of Ricch’s biggest songs to date: “Ballin’.”
The track was included in Mustard’s third studio album Perfect Ten, and was a top candidate to be a summer anthem of 2019.
Since then, Roddy and Mustard — who both hail from the Los Angeles area — almost resemble another LA tag team in LeBron and Anthony Davis on their 2020 championship run.
With hits like “High Fashion” from Roddy’s December 2019 album Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial, as well as both appearing on Ty Dolla $ign’s “Real Life” from his 2020 album Featuring Ty Dolla $ign, the two LA natives never seem to disappoint.
Although Roddy’s hiatus from dropping a full-length project has fans sitting on the edge of their seats, Ricch’s potent feature appearances have still been gratifying for his followers over the past year.
His 2020 and early 2021 was mostly dedicated to hopping on tracks with big name artists such as Meek Mill, Cordae, DaBaby, Birdman and Lil Wayne, 42 Dugg, and Don Toliver on the remix of Internet Money’s summer smash hit “Lemonade.” This campaign has only helped to build Roddy’s fanbase and brand. However, his followers continued to thirst for new solo music.
This past March, Roddy performed new single “Heartless (Live from LA)” during the 2021 Grammys and would release the song that night. The somber track showcases Ricch’s harmonious singing and despairing storytelling.
His latest single “Late At Night” was teased by Roddy on Twitter in early May and was finally released this past weekend — garnering praise almost immediately due to both Ricch’s and Mustard’s seamless chemistry with one another.
The sensual track is hardly less than three minutes. The calm, piano-infused beat from Mustard features timely, appropriate claps that compliment Roddy’s flow. The crisp and smooth vocals on the track add to the romantic element of the song where Roddy shows his love interest that he wants her all to himself. While still flexing his superstar status in the rap game, Roddy seemingly can’t get enough of her.
She know I got the game, but I’m never gon’ give it back / Every time that we fuck, I gotta run it back.“Late At Night” — Roddy Ricch
The “kiss me in the mornin’ or late at night” hook ending with “’cause when I ride, I’ma ride, ride with you” leads gracefully into each of Roddy’s two verses. From sensual innuendos, to not-so-subtle brags about his wealth, Roddy’s addicting voice and seamless flow — coupled with Mustard’s fitting production — continues to display the fruits of their labor.
“Late at Night” not only teases listeners for what’s to come from the Compton star, but also further proves Roddy’s ability to make a soothing record sound even more luxurious.
