MOMENTS | Mash-up: Get Over Your Mondays & Listen to New Vince Staples x Future Track “Señorita”
We’ve curated the best of digital age-inspired creativity—from user-generated content, mash-ups, and remixes to collaborations between multi-disciplined makers.
Long Beach rapper Vince Staples teamed up with Future for a new blast-your-speakers rap, “Señorita.” The track is the first song from his upcoming debut album and the follow-up to his Hell Can Wait EP. Hell Can Wait was a standout look into intense, politically charged, emotionally charged kind of rap Vince Staples is putting out. Future’s contribution to “Señorita” includes a hook lifted from his Honest cut “Covered ‘N Money,” and Snoh Aalegra can also be heard on the track. Vince first debuted the track at SXSW, but you can pop over to LA Leakers for the exclusive first listen.
In an interview with Pitchfork, Staples explains how he aims to create a more accurate, less disconnected picture of street life with his music. The rapper believes that the purpose of music is to make people feel uncomfortable and articulates, “I don’t feel like I should be in the studio every day, because when you’re not experiencing life you don’t know how to affect other people’s lives. I record when I have something to say.”
We’re not sure when Vince Staples is going drop his LP, but once you check out “Señorita,” then watch him perform “Blue Suede,” one of the standouts from his EP.
