As a follow-up to his Her Too EP released earlier this year, SiR releases two soul-stirring bangers back to back. For the first, he teams up Top Dawg Entertainment labelmate ScHoolBoy Q for a laid-back, piano-laced tune about his approach to his newfound lifestyle entitled “Something Foreign.” The two float gloriously over the Saxon-produced beat, as SiR sings, “Try to keep it humble in a world full of egos, gangsters and evils / Player in the game but I’m making my own rules / And I’m pulling up in something foreign.” Meanwhile, ScHoolboy Q raps about taking his lady for a spin before settling in for some adult time. He follows up the chorus spitting, “I pulled this out for you, my newest coop / Grip the horse, I'll take you 'round the loop / Close your eyes, your heart available / Land on earth, and cruise through Malibu / Gave you time, now give your drawers the boot.”
While the melancholy keys on the track evoke feelings of romance, the lyrics suggest otherwise. And that’s OK, as the second offering showcases SiR’s softer side. For the sultry track “Something New,” he trades verses with British singer/songwriter Etta Bond and the pair make melodic magic together. Over the jazzy track filled with sickening horns and a mean drum kick, the two pledge their affection to one another while hinting that the love they’ve found may not come easy. Dripping with hope and passion, they sing "And if everything else falls apart, I still have you / If I can't find my way back home, we'll make something new," suggesting they may have a few obstacles to overcome before they can truly be together.
