Young Thug has continued to crank out new songs since he released his Barter 6 album last month, and his new Jamie xx collab “I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times)” is a serious song-of-the-year contender. Thug’s latest track is a winner, too. “Power” unites him with London On Da Track, his best regular producer, and it has him crooning craggily and animatedly over a beautiful, melodic track that still slaps hard. Seriously, those drums sounds are enough to hurt you, and Thug’s decision to go into sleepy-singsong mode on a track like this is further evidence that he has some of rap’s greatest songwriting instincts. “Power” is just a great song, and you can listen to it below.
