Chief Keef Releases New Track Entitled 'Voodoo'
. (Radio.com) Chief Keef's turning over a new leaf after a tough year. His 2014 proved more complicated than anyone could have expected: he was dropped from his label, and failed to produce any noticeable damage on the charts despite releasing dozens of songs.
On the other hand, those songs--Keef left behind pop hooks and stomping production for questing, tender experimentation. He discovered a talent for production, and released a criminally overlooked album--Nobody--full of quiet, oddball gems.
All of which brings us to "Voodoo," which charts a new direction forward from 2014's confusing morass of misplaced label expectations and self-discovery. Keef packs at least six glorious earworm moments into "Voodoo," like the way he pronounces the word "tutu," or the breakdown around four minutes when the beat falls out, misty synths come in, and his voice goes through the Stargate.
Not to mention the way he yelps when referring to money in his pocket as his "boo," or the way he emphasizes the second syllable of "voodoo" like a child learning the word for the first time. Listen here.
