Brooklyn-bred superstar Fivio Foreign nearly has all bases covered coming into his highly-anticipated debut album.
Along with the chart-topping hits that put him on the map — like 2019’s “Big Drip” and October’s “Not in the Mood” with Lil Tjay and Kay Flock — he’s also waged a stellar feature campaign with some of the game’s legendary icons. Hopping on “Demons” with Drake in 2020, “Off The Grid” with Kanye West and Playboi Carti and Roddy Ricch on LIVE LIFE FA$T, Foreign is streaking towards his debut album leaving no room for error in 2022.
When we spoke with Fivio in his Our Generation Music exclusive interview, he told us that his forthcoming studio debut The Bible — executive produced by Kanye West — looks to imitate Christian scripture by telling the impactful story of his career and Brooklyn drill in general.
To fuel this idea, his first single off the record follows a trend that catapulted drill to the top of hip-hop’s subgenres in 2021. Sampling 2000s rock or pop hits and interpolating them into drill beats became a TikTok viral sensation, and sparked a creative revolution for rappers seeking hot production. It seems that Fivio was among these artists, as he teased a song that utilizes Beyoncé and Destiny’s Child‘s Billboard No. 1 hit “Say My Name.”
While he previewed the track, he asked fans to guess who would be featured on this eventual release. Queen Naija, the Michigan singer who has contributed to songs like “Yea Yea (Remix)” by Pop Smoke and “Come Closer” by A Boogie wit da Hoodie, hinted that it may be her in the comments with a smirking emoji.
Fans also guessed that A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie could be on the track, as ad-libs towards the end of the snippet can be loosely tied to his voice.
Either way, the use of iconic tracks like “Say My Name” as samples usually become automatic hits (i.e Polo G’s “Smooth Criminal”), as Fivio’s The Bible will seemingly offer both scripture and star power upon its eventual release.
