The follow-up interpolates the guitar-driven beat featured on the original, which heavily samples ‘Midnight Blues’ by Snowy White. Meek takes centre stage on the new track, delivering rapid-fire bars with a bridge courtesy of Lil Uzi, who also provides the song’s final verse.
After they were spotted shooting a music video together back in July, ‘Blue Notes 2’ arrives alongside a high-octane clip that shows both rappers street bikes and ATVs as they’re pursued by a police chopper.
Watch the video, directed by Kid Art alongside Meek himself, below:
‘Blue Notes 2’ marks the third collaboration Meek and Lil Uzi have appeared on together. In 2016, Lil Uzi Vert featured on another of Meek’s ‘DC4’ cuts, ‘Froze’, alongside Nicki Minaj. Lil Uzi reappeared the following year on Meek’s ‘Wins & Losses’ track ‘Fuck That Check Up’.
Meek’s last studio album was 2018’s ‘Championships’, which he followed with his 2020 ‘Quarantine Pack’ EP. In October of last year, the rapper indicated a new album was on the way.
