After ditching a deluxe version for his latest album AftërLyfe, perhaps one of Yeat’s most anticipated snippets has finally arrived.
“My Wrist” may have circulated subreddits and Twitter threads in one low-quality version or another, but the new wave wunderkind knows how big this single is — and potentially could be the catalyst to his next album rollout.
Recruiting Young Thug for a verse filled with fire-breathing braggadocio, the tandem’s chemistry reaches max capacity when they trade verses on the sneakily produced Pi’erre Bourne cut. Between Yeat’s transporting ad-libs and Thug’s animated performance, “My Wrist” is a full circle moment for the then-Noah Smith, who willed his collaborations with Thugger into existence.
In typical Yeat fashion, the single’s announcement came from his Instagram story earlier this week, which is almost a flex in how off-the-cuff it was. It became a definitive flex when you notice he tagged the currently incarcerated YSL boss, marking the duo’s second collaboration after “Outside” on 2022’s 2 Alivë.
Last month, Yeat initially previewed the track on Instagram live, featuring his patented synth-infused vocalized melodies with a slithering verse from Thug. Adding another hit into his massively impressive discography, fans now wait for the new album Yeat’s promised in place of AftërLyfe’s deluxe.
