iLoveMakonnen released a second track today as a part of his campaign to make everyone's Monday more exciting: "Straight Top," a collaboration with Key!—who appeared opposite Makonnen on "Look At Wrist"—and Sonny Digital, the producer behind "I Don't Sell Molly No More" and "Tuesday." Makonnen's rapping is highly self-referential on this track, as he quotes titles from his songs and mixtapes: "I don't sell no fucking Molly, but at the same time I'm the man of the party… now I had to go and get smarter/ iLoveMakonnen, Mr. Drink More Water." Sonny Digital described why he liked working with Makonnen in simple terms in an interview with FADER last year: "Shit sounded fun."
