“This is the Faygo we needed” and “old Faygo finally coming back” littered comment sections on SoFaygo’s latest track “YE,” which sees the Cactus Jack rapper return to After Me form.
Since the release of Pink Heartz in November 2022, Faygo jarred fans with a debut album filled with slower, cinematic tracks in place of the meditative rage the new wave star built his catalog on. With a new EP titled GO! on the way, SoFaygo’s “YE” not only leads in the project, but came without warning on Thursday night (May 11). The SoundCloud-only cut made its way onto all DSPs on Wednesday (May 17) which coincided a complementing visual.
Stemming from his two-pack EXTRA / 4ALLMYDAWGS in February, Faygo’s comeback track (produced by Bryceunknwn and Y2tnb) sounds like an early 2020 banger with updated flair. “Wake up get cake, all work, no breaks (All work, no breaks, (Woo, breaks) / I kick slide, I feel like Ye (Ye, Ye),” Faygo tears off on the opening lines, shouting out the YZY mogul over spacey pianos and a simple trap bounce. It feels like a SoundCloud time capsule of sorts, with Faygo flowing with a high-pitched falsetto and a vocal stacked bridge that sees him “pull up and go to the moon.”
Faygo’s EP was first revealed when Travis Scott and Cactus Jack took the stage during NBA All Star Weekend, as La Flame announced that UTOPIA would come after projects from Don Toliver, Sheck Wes and SoFaygo. It seems that now we’re in the homestretch, with Scott’s album reportedly slated for release in June.
