6LACK is “Cutting Ties.”
The mysterious R&B crooner has released a new buzz track, boasting hypnotic production and lyrics about how he’s good all by his lonely.
“This world is new to me, I do not know it,” he sings. “My pride never wanted you to know this / Sometimes I just wanna be alone / And either way I gotta go / When it comes to cutting ties, girl, I’m like a pro.”
After breaking out with the critically-lauded Free 6LACK in 2016, the soulful crooner capped off last year with “Grab the Wheel,” a collaboration with Timbaland. Now, it looks like the Coachella performer is gearing up to drop a follow-up to his debut.
Following the birth of his daughter, 6LACK told Interview that he’s ready to release music with newfound “clarity.” “I have more clarity,” he explained. “I feel like that translates to my real life, too, not just my music. I feel obligated to be clearer and tackle things straight on instead of pushing them to the side for later on.”
