Terrace Martin, Robert Glasper, Kamasi Washington & 9th Wonder Drop “Freeze Tag” Ft. Phoelix As New Supergroup, Dinner Party
Terrace Martin, Robert Glasper, Kamasi Washington & 9th Wonder debuted their new supergroup, Dinner Party, with their first single, “Freeze Tag” ft. Phoelix.
Despite the smooth, easy-riding tone of the music, though, the lyrics themselves are much more hard-hitting. On the hook, Phoelix croons about experiencing police brutality, contrasting the lyrical content drastically with the instrumental. “They told me put my hands up behind my head,” he sings. “I think they got the wrong one/I’m sick and tired of runnin’/I’ve been searching where the love went.”
“Freeze Tag” is the first single off Dinner Party’s forthcoming debut self-titled album, which is set to drop on July 10th.
But I think I’m ’bout to cut a rug
I been waitin’ on the summer
Soul lookin’ back and wonders
“How we ‘posed to get from under?”
