Wow. After anxiously waiting for a few weeks, the day has come — Young Nudy and Pi’erre Bourne’s highly-anticipated collaborative effort, Sli’merre, was finally released at 12 PM EST earlier today.
Considering the excitement behind this project thanks to the two singles, “Mister” alongside 21 Savage and “Extendo” featuring Lil Uzi Vert, I wasn’t sure how well the project would live up to the larger-than-life expectations. However, being that it already received an 8.0 review on Pitchfork and considering the overwhelmingly positive reactions from fans on social media, it’s easy to tell that Nudy and Pi’erre’s long-awaited effort went far above and beyond what anyone could have expected.
12 tracks long and stacked with star-studded features including 21 Savage, Lil Uzi Vert, Megan Thee Stallion, and DaBaby, this project takes Nudy’s chilling street storytelling and brings it into an entirely new world of status and sound. Pi’erre Bourne’s otherworldly production style seamlessly complements the legendary cast of characters on the album, and further, the electrifying presence of Nudy’s oddball vocals and malleable flows makes for a perfect concoction of melodic, transcendent sounds that you can’t help but love.
So far, I’m two listens deep into the project, but I can already tell that this one is going to be thrown on repeat all summer long. Check out Sli’merre below and let us know what you think in the comments!
