Eric Bellinger and Wale team up again as they want you to act a little selfish and “Treat Yourself” in the new single.
In this single, EB and Wale wants to get all that they deserve to have when they rap in the uptempo track “If I want it, I’m get it / If I got it, I’m spend it / I don’t care what it cost… / I’ve been working for the lifestyle / And I’m trying to live it right now.”
The LA native tells VIBE: “Treat Yourself” is easily one of my favorite joints on the project. I love all of the songs but this one is special to me because it’s the first time I’m actually being kind of braggadocios on a record. Over the years I’ve had some success and I tend to keep quiet about my personal life especially in the department of material things. I thought it was time to let people know what time it is.”
Then later he touches on the chemistry between him and Wale and their past: “Wale is someone I’ve been working super closely with lately. It was genuine, it was organic. When he heard the song he immediately hopped on. It’s always great working with Wale, I’m actually headed to the studio to work with him now for his new project. There’s never any effort put forth when we work, it’s crazy. Our chemistry alone could write a hit record. We’re both extremely passionate about the art and the culture. It’s rare to meet someone that actually cares about the music and the feeling behind it nowadays so when we linked we pretty much clicked instantly and it’s been magic ever since.”
The forthcoming project is set to feature Elhae, Victoria Monet, Tayla Parx, and Wale. Eric B. For President: Term 2 is available for pre-order on iTunes today!
