It’s just a radio rip for now, but Lil Durk’s new single “Party,” featuring Young Thug and produced by Young Chop, aims straight for the club. Not every rapper can dabble with EDM elements gracefully without sounding like they’re trying too hard to cross over, but Chop pulls it off, relegating the fist-pumpy bits to the hook (plus, Durk’s mastered the dance-rap hybrid years ago). Durk and Thug are a match made in heaven—Thug sounds smoother than ever, his flow reminiscent of Future’s on last year’s underrated “No Love.” The track will end up on Durk’s studio debut on Def Jam, on which he’s currently at work in Atlanta.
