Mushroom Chocolate – [Quin] Ft. [6LACK]
I’m not overly sentimental (nor am I in a relationship), so by no means am I a reliable source for information on appropriate Valentine’s Day presents, but instead of flowers that die, a bear that collects dust in the closet by late April, or some expensive candy, why not send your Valentine a link to Quin’s, new, 6LACK-assisted effort “Mushroom Chocolate”? Sure, it may not be “traditional,” but when they get the message, it will serve the same purpose and (assuming they have good taste in music) will certainly yield the same results. Quin kicks off the cut stressing the importance of having someone by your side (and how good it feels when you do) before being joined 6LACK who shares in the sentiment and showcases palpable chemistry with the track’s creator. Make no mistake, this isn’t your average, sappy love song, though. Quins smooth, sultry vocals give “Mushroom Chocolate” and exotic energy and, for an R&B-centric cut, “Mushroom Chocolate” has an irresponsible amount of “slap” to it thanks to the boardwork of the legendary producer, Chuck Inglish. For now “Mushroom Chocolate” is just a loosie, but it’ll likely end up on her next project, which appears to be titled, Lucid.
