Fredo Bang links with Sleepy Hallow for ‘No Love’

Fredo Bang and Sleepy Hallow have teamed up to take over airwaves all the way from Baton Rouge to Brooklyn with their refreshingly light-hearted new single, “No Love.”

While certainly not the most obvious pairing, when you look below the surface you find that Fredo and Sleepy actually have a lot in common. From their noticeably baritone vocals and affinity for surprisingly gentle melodies, their ability to appeal to the masses without compromising their street-champ status is not only awe-inspiring, but central to their artistry.

Ahead of Fredo’s upcoming project, 2 Face Bang 2 — the follow-up to his breakout 2018 mixtape — it all comes together on “No Love.” Its guitar-led production with a light sprinkl3 of drill elements fully succeeds the difficult task of infusing a drill record with a pop feel (a familiar formula for Sleepy Hallow). Throughout the track, the pair outline a decidedly more aggressive approach to relationships than most are accustomed to — one where you have to keep one eye on your opps and the other on your romantic partner — with both artists finding super catchy pockets for their equally compelling melodic flows.

Leading up to their release, Fredo and Sleepy linked up with the now-iconic, ukulele-playing viral producer, Einer Bankz, for an acoustic rendition of their new single — who actually co-produced the song alongside Sam Beats and the multi-platinum Iceberg. Furthermore, many may not realize the full circle moment happening on “No Love,” but in his recent Off the Record interview with DJ Akademiks, Fredo discussed how Einer Bankz played an important role early in his career by helping to create his first big viral moment online.

Thanks in part to their Einer Bankz clip circulating over the last week, the audio-only version alone is already already turning heads. Fans will also be happy to hear that they can expect to see a visual for “No Love” sometime soon — after Fredo Bang was spotted shooting the video in Sleepy’s stomping grounds of Flatbush, Brooklyn.

Overall, Fredo Bang and Sleepy Hallow definitely knocked this one out of the park and are very likely to land in regular radio rotation with “No Love.” Despite coming from very different parts of the country, when you hear them together, it makes you wonder why they haven’t teamed up before. It will definitely be fun to watch them perform the song together when the visual drops, and hopefully this isn’t the last Brooklyn-Baton Rouge linkup fans will see.
