Are Mura Masa and Shygirl the dynamic duo that 2022 has been missing? All signs point to “Yes” as the musical masterminds enlist Channel Tres on their new house-flavored banger “hollaback bitch” (June 24).
Earlier this year, Mura Masa announced that his upcoming album demon time (originally titled Fun) was slated for release on Sept. 16. But luckily, it seems like he’s deadset on keeping fans well-fed all summer long.
This isn’t the first track that Mura Masa has graced fans with this year, as last month’s “blessing me” with Pa Salieu and Skillibeng and “bbycakes” with Lil Uzi Vert, Shygirl, and PinkPantheress worked well as harbingers for the Guernsey artist’s newest era.
Unlike the tracks that preceded it, however, “hollaback bitch” is an unyielding and melancholic club anthem that channels the holy spirit of Gwen Stefani on every inch of the track’s chorus. Between the track’s left-field percussion, jazzy horn melodies, and Shygirl trading verses with Channel Tres, the hype for demon time cannot be higher.
While fans cross their fingers that Mura Masa has another track to surprise them with this summer, tracks like “hollaback bitch” and “bbycakes” will be sure to tide them over until September rolls around.
