Wowowow. This song is giving me life. I was hooked right from the first five beats. The uptempo, high energy beat is everything, and I can guarantee it will make you move.
Just as you’re getting into the feels of N.E.R.D, Future’s voice begins to emerge at about the one minute mark. You can hear him saying “one thousand,” which is the title of the track. And this little Future intro got me too ready for the rest of the song.
And then at 1:07min, we get that *fire emoji* pumped up verse which has almost a suspending-like sound. Future ends at about 1:40min, and we are back into the high energy beats of N.E.R.D. To me, Future’s verse + the beat resemble Jim Jones and Ron Browz “Champagne” ft. Jules Santana. Can you say throwback? Compare below.
Cut to 2:10min, and we are blessed with a new sound – an almost electric, fantasy sounding beat. It reminds me of the Mario Kart Rainbow Road theme song tbh.
The rest of the song you’re pretty much guaranteed to live your best life, and then with only 30 seconds left, you are hit with that fire. I would love to watch some choreo (or participate in some) to this outro.
If this and Lemon are any indication of what the rest of the album will sound like, I’m all about it. No_One Ever Really Dies is expected to drop on December 15.
