Since iLoveMakonnen broke into the pop mainstream with "Tuesday," he's stayed away from songs that have the potential to be hits. Not anymore: a new tune surfaced today which finds the Super Chef connecting with DJ Mustard and Ty Dolla $ign. The beat shares the low rumble of Mustard's "24 Hours," but the producer pushes the track into EDM territory with synthesizer breakdowns and a drop. Makonnen sounds wounded and hurt as he wonders, Why'd you call? Just to play with my heart?
Though Mustard just put out a new mixtape, this song did not appear on it. Both Ty Dolla and Makonnen are theoretically supposed to release albums this year, so maybe "Why'd You Call?" will end up on one of those. Revisit Ty's FADER cover story and read about the fall and rise of Makonnen.
