Even the most rabid party animals among us have those nights when we just want to ditch our sloppy friends and the craziness of the club and go chillllllllll.
And for those particular Friday nights, consider your personal soundtrack secured. R&B starlet Tinashe and Chi-town MC Chance the Rapper teamed up with London production duo Snakehips for “All My Friends” (no, it’s not an LCD Soundsystem cover), a feel-good, weekend-friendly anthem.
The Joyride singer kicks things off with an introspective verse about her love-hate relationship with getting lit, singing, “Sure, I get lonely / When I’m the only, only human in the heaving heat of the animals.” Chance chimes in with his signature snappy wordplay on a half-sung, half-rapped verse and then contributes backing vocals to what might be the catchiest effin’ chorus of the year.
This is the kind of joyful chorus that’ll have you singing along by the end of your first listen. But just in case, here are the lyrics for your memorizing pleasure: “All my friends are wasted/ And I hate this club, man I drink too much/ Another Friday night I wasted/ My eyes are black and red, I’m crawling back to you babe.”
