Listen Down: Saba Releases New Tracks ‘Mrs. Whoever’ & ‘Something in the Water’

This is the Chicago rapper and producer’s first solo release since 2018.

By Bubba Krishnamurti

Saba has issued a pair of new tunes in his first solo release since his own name since releasing 2018’s album ‘CARE FOR ME ‘ and then one-off tracks ‘Stay Right Here,’ ‘Where It’s At,’ and ‘Papaya.’ Denzel Curry is featured on ‘Something in the Water’ — a production by previous collaborators Nascent, Nahum, and daedaePIVOT. Having cut his teeth as a co-founder of the musical collective Pivot Gang, Saba produced ‘Mrs. Whoever’ on his own. 

Saba spoke about the new tracks in a brief statement:

For me, releasing music is me letting go and getting out of my own way. It’s me shutting down my own ideas of perfectionism, and me accepting my shit for what it is. I can keep holding on to shit and looking for the next best thing, which I think I’ve done my whole life, but I wanna combat that idea of something not being enough by just letting go and sharing my thoughts in real time.

I don’t really care to be understood right now in the same way that I think I did in the past. It would bother me when people would quote lyrics wrong or say ‘this song is about this,’ or ‘this song is about that,’ but that’s because the music was so personal to me. Now it’s just like, man, ‘I made this and I like it, here you go, get what you get.’ And I feel more comfortable with being there.

Listen down to both tracks, including a music video for ‘Mrs. Whoever,’ now:
