Now, the 19-year-old has released his most Brown-influenced track to date, “Do It Right.” The slow jam finds Austin abandoning the poppy funkiness of his latest single, “Dirty Work,” in favor of a more R&B-leaning sound. Rob Villa, a.k.a. Rob The Villain, a.k.a. Austin’s childhood friend Robert Villanueva, also contributes a verse during which he raps catchy lines like “I could be the Bobby, she could be the Whitney.”
Over a pretty, hypnotic melody and snap-filled beat, Austin croons about spotting a girl at a party and wanting to go home with her because she, well, does it right.
Austin originally debuted the song live at a concert in Springfield, Ill., in August, but it’s nice to hear the full thing in its finished form (read: without a bunch of fans screaming in the background of a cell phone video!).
And speaking of Mahomies… after Austin tweeted on Wednesday (Sep. 2) that he’d be dropping the track soon, his fans promptly and dutifully made it a worldwide trending topic.
Mahomies have since flooded Twitter with their reviews of the long-awaited song, and it definitely looks like it’s earned their highest praises.
So many flame emojis!
